A friend just brought these beautiful El Cope Auratus back for me from the NorCal meeting. (Thanks Jon)
I bought 4 from Deb (Salix) and I thought I would post a couple pictures to thank her.
One of the pics is not very good of the frog, but a great pic of the fuzzy toilet bowl pleurothallis orchid so I thought I would throw it in too. I have also included a FTS and a Full floor shot.

Thanks Deb

Very nice looking. My roomate has a couple of groups of them and they are the boldest frogs of both of our collections. I dread when I have to go into their tank to prune plants because they arent afraid of anything and always jump out of the tank!

Thanks for all the advice. They are almost sexable size so I will keep an eye on them. They were pretty bold the first day, (but they haven't found all the good hiding places yet). I have high hopes though because a couple of them actually move towards the front of the tank when I stop to look in.

The entire list will have to wait until I get home, but the orchid in the picture is Pleurothallis cypripedioides.

I'm glad you like them. Maybe I just train mine to be bold, :)

It's looks like they got a great home. I raise all my auratus in groups of four and leave them together as a breeding group. I've never had a problem. I keep five different kinds of auatus.

Good luck,
Deb

You have your ferns backwards
The microgramma is from Andy's, the microsorum ( species linguiforme) is from black jungle
Great specimin of vresia racinaea! My favorite Viv brom. Mine is throwing a spike finally after 5 years. It threw out 6 pups but wouldn't bloom.

Thanks for the correction. I don't have labels for either so I was just going from what I thought I remembered.
I really like the V. racinaea too. I had been looking for a while. Mine came from Jason at TropicalPlantz.com. I was very impressed with the quality of the plant.
