I wanted to share...here are some photos I took in 2008. My frogs lived together for 2 years before I had to sell them due to my daughters kidney failure. They were not dwarfed, not stressed out, slept together and didnt fight in the entire two years. No breeding occurred, which wasnt the purpose of housing them together anyways.

Anyways, enjoy!

Every night they slept together..

Its kind of sad that all of those frogs were houses in a tank that small.
Hmm... I agree..

But things can appear smaller on the internet. My 20 tall was said to look smaller than a 10 through pics.

If you don't mid me asking, how large is that tank? And how many frogs did you keep in it?

Oh, and another question, not to sound rude or anything, as I am asking this out of pure curiosity, but did you post this just to sir things up? It seems you are aware of many peoples' opinion on the matter....

Just sayin'....

they were housed in a 10 gallon a few days until i got my 37 tall organized.

I think this question comes up a lot, can they mix..and im posting my pics of my experience.

and why does everyone apologize here in every post for trying not to sound rude..?

everyone is entitled to their opinions..and i have one too. Im not going to force it upon anyone tho.

If a forum isnt willing to allow different opinions and sharing, then what is a forum for?

In the other thread he said it was a 33 gallon tank and there are 12 frogs in it.

How long had this tank been set up for at the time of these photos?

You had 12 frogs in a 10 gallon? You said you sold all these right?

thought it was..but remembered it was an odd shape and size. im selling a 33 g right now, so thats probably stuck in my head.

so the small tank pics were sept 14, 08, and the second tank pics that i took were in october 08. so being that i had my spinal fusion in feb 08, which is 7 months since i started up the small tank, and i had them housed in a few different tanks before my spinal fusion, which i didnt like so sold those and transferred one of my aquariums into the tank you see...and ..oh..what was your question again?

are you trying to figure something out or just being rude? :) just asking...

Dart frogs are breeding machines, give them their minimum requirements they will breed. The fact you claim there was no breeding indicates you did have issues. It is a good thing you do not have them together any longer, I can guarantee you would have eventually would have had aggression and dead frogs. Some of these frogs can take two
Or more years to really reach maturity.
I learned the hard way years ago that even a 2.1.0 tinc tank eventually leads to a dead frog, even after living together for two years.

So do you still have frogs? *edited*

Yes it may take time, the aggression will eventually show. Often you may not see it until you start having frogs drop off.
In the long run the frogs are better served by a 1.1.0 ratio

Heres the thing about this though... there are people here that know a LOT more than you do. Husbandry methods talked about on this site have been developed by those people who have spent a lot of time on them. For you to act like your single experience means it will work every time shows your own disrespect for the concept of the forum. You are new here, this topic has been covered ad nauseum. I can guarantee you have no new information to offer toward it, which in turn is why people become hostile towards you when you resist them in the manor that you have.

Most times when this topic is brought up the response ends up being "it can be done, but it is not recommended". The people that typically resist that are simply those that cannot accept it because it is not what they wanted to hear.

Look, we get it... your frogs lived together and did not die... congrats... but the full experience of the people that have dealt with these species since they were first introduced to captivity contradicts what you, an individual with VERY limited experience, are saying...

Im sharing..thats it, nothing more.

I think we know that this forum has its issues. Troll ?? not sure exactly why you would insult me this way, but i have no control as to how you treat others. You are responsible for your own actions and words.

I have had some great experiences and I just thought i would share. I thought it was adorable how the auratus and azureus slept together..one by one they would crawl into that spot and once the first one was settled, the second one would crawl in, get settled and then the third one would crawl in and get settled. Now how is that not adorable? I watched this ritual in each tank they were in. For those of you who think this experience isnt worth sharing, its sad that you cant open your minds to the possibility that this could happen and did happen.

When you have 12 frogs in a 10 gallon (or even a 30 whatever) and limited hides and plants, I'm not at all surprised they "adorably" crawled into the same spot together. *edited

I have to say, it sadden me very much to see those pictures of all those different species of frogs crammed in such as small tank. I don't think it's cute or adorable. I think it's irresponcible.
It's always upsetting to see people who are more concerned about their viewing pleasure than the requirements of the animals under their care.

Read my previous post. These frogs are territorial. Just because you did not have issues prior to getting rid of them says nothing except you were lucky.
Cute? I call it irresponsible. Any reading on the subject would indicate that sharing such a post as this would make you a troll. In the long run the frogs are better served in other conditions. Again read my other post. I predict a locked thread before long. Congrats on your cute pictures:(
