Here are some pics of the happy new inhabitants and home!

-They have moved from a 10 gal grow out, to a 40 gal breeder. I am sure they will be pleased...

Wanted to clarify, not new frogs; a new home.

All my thanks to James Osborne: http://www.dendroboard.com/forum/vendor-feedback/74558-james-osborne-jeosbo01.html for some healthy, lovely tads! If I could have gotten 6 from him, I would have! Outstanding breeder and a solid Line. If anyone is in the market for terribilis, look here first!

I took out the majority of leaf litter(for now). I just didn't like the look as it was. Does anyone know where I can get a bit of Java Moss? I would like to try and have that be the majority of the viv floor. I have a bunch of smooth river stones that the moss would love to become attached to... Any thoughts?

All my thanks!

I noticed a funny thing when transporting these guys. They are a lot BIGGER out of the viv! I thought I had a good size reference on them... I was wrong. They are much bigger than I had thought :) ! Another funny thing, 2 simply hopped into the temp tupperware hold over without any real effort to drive them on my part. The third tried to get under moss patches, lol. I had to bare hand him(gently, and latex gloved) and escort him/her into the tupperware.

Question:

This is a much bigger enclosure than before. I am thinking 3 seperate feeder stations(one per frog). Is this an overkill? I just want to be sure the FFs don't disperse too quickly for them to really "dig in". Any thoughts are greatly appreciated!

Edit: After the removal of the leaf litter, they are much more comfortable, it seems. They never had dense leaf litter, and were kind of hiding from it. Now they have resumed normal foraging, etc.

Lookin good Just! 3 feeding stations may be a good idea...worth a try at least. Terribs can get a lil feisty at feeding time huh? If you need any mag leaves let me know, I have plenty I can send your way.

If you decide you never want to see your P. terribilis again, move them from a 10 gal to a 40 gal. LMAO! All jokes aside, they are far more shy when given the option(when THIS young). Makes me feel bad about keeping them in the 10 gal grow-out, lol! I am sure they were looking for some private time, lol.

I added mag leaves( ;) ) and also some small pea gravel in areas to make it a bit more diverse in scope.
