He's a confirmed male from toxicfrogaddiction. Just arrived today, healthy and eating well.

Enjoy!

Good choice going for the Sipaliwinis! This is one of my favorite morphs (although a tricky breeder). Is there a girl in this boy's future?

Take care, Richard.

My favorite tinc morph. Looks like that male could stand to put some meat on them bones, but perhaps it's just the angle of the photo. Any more pics?

Probably the angle of the photo. He's actually doing really well; eating like a monster. I'll get more photos by next Monday AT THE LATEST. :)

I know he's not skinny though; I'll be getting better photos as this one is from my phone.

I would refer to all of my male Sipaliwinis as "svelt" in comparison to the females. It's sort of like inferalanis, which are another "svelt" morph.

Wow, he is real skinny!!! Feed him twice a day and feed out termites...that should get him fat quickly
Chris, it just seems that way because I turned your sip into a fat pig. :p

dendrobateslover, congrats on the sip! I have recently morphed a green sip froglet and he is a wonderful little frog. :)

Sorry for the delay AND the double post :eek:

If I get my father's permission... I will be getting a female and [hopefully] breeding them. Just wondering... how many people would be interested in green sips? I wanna know how good of an "investment" it would be to start breeding them. I don't wanna be stuck with 100s of froglets lol :rolleyes:. I'd probably be selling froglets for around $45-60 plus shipping.

They are my utmost favorite dart frog besides blue jeans and galacts.

I think it's hard to predict how well a type of frog will sell for in the future. They come in and out of favor. Sips are really nice frogs though. With a pair, you wouldn't have to raise them to froglets if you didn't want to. You could cull the eggs or separate the pair if they were breeding too much.

I really hope your not in this hobby for just some extra cash flow, but actually care about these animals and interested in preserving the species in the hobby.

That being said it isn't wrong to sell frogs to save up for another species to further the preservation of them in the hobby. We have a couple of people in this hobby who are just in it for the cash and let the health of the frogs go to pot...no names being mentioned though.

I have only recently been able to get my two groups of Green Sipaliwinis to breed and don't feel they are well represented in the hobby (as compared to the Azureus, which is very hardy and an excellent breeder). I don't think you would ever have an problems finding homes for your babies.

I also echo Chris' good comment. Acquire the frogs you want to have in your collection. If you're like other hobbyists, you will always be able to find good homes for good frogs.

Good luck! Richard.

Oh I'm absolutely not in this for the money at all; I actually love watching the breeding behavior of herptiles in captivity. The only reason I'm selling froglets would be for money.

And that's great. I'm going to have azureus and green sips if I'm allowed to have the female. If I get either of them breeding and have tadpoles by October I'll be vending them at the NE reptile expo in October along with my herp-related merchandise. :D

UPDATE:
He's currently residing in a temporary ten-gallon tank but will be moving to a twenty gallon long tomorrow or Thursday (that's when It'll be finished); and the female should be arriving Thursday or Friday.




New pics from my phone (that's why they're so bad quality :rolleyes:)

She's heeeeeeeeeeere! Props to Tony for great customer service and good quality frogs (sorry for any vendor feedback). She's got great blue color, and the green is a tealish-blue. She's gorgeous! I'll be hopefully putting the male in with her soon if everything works out. ;)
