Awesome, always love seeing these guys... super underappreciated.


Want... trivs... so badly...
They'd go well with your "less frogs, bigger tanks" MO too......... just think of the possibilities....

*puts papers back in devil's advocate briefcase and walks away slowly* :D

Sensational photography, it was my ABSOLUTE pleasure! All my thanks for sharing! How large is this species commonly? I admit, I am not interested in keeping this species(Thus never researched), but the coloration is appreciable, and I'd like to know more. All my thanks!

Love the tank and the frogs! I wish I had the room for several triv vivs, they are so underappreciated.

These frogs are a little over a year old, and about 2.5 inches long, so they are pretty large dendrobatids. This is my first experience with this group of frogs, and so far they are flighty and shy (which I expected). They remind me of the dart frog equivalent of leopard frogs.

Hey zach nice tank, it looks really good!

I was wondering, what is the name of this plant circled in red. I have a poop load and was wondering what it is. I have had it since I got my first darts and have added it to almost all of my tanks and I always forget what it is. Maybe I should write it down this time :rolleyes:

Not Zach....But I'm pretty sure its Peperomia glabella.

These guys are great. I've got a group of 3 right now and they were quite shy at first, but have gotten over it. They are in the family room and always out and about. Their color is amazing.

Hmm, I'd say Peperomia Serpens...

I have the exact same plant in a couple of my vivs, looks just like a mini Philodendron.

I should clarify...I think it is the Peperomia that Josh's sells as P. glabella:
Peperomia Glabella - Peperomia | Josh's Frogs
I made the assumption that Zach got the plants from Rob so the plant would be labelled as P. glabella (sometimes my brain makes weird associations). I think P. serpens is correct though. Sorry for any confusion...blame my faulty neuronal connections.

Good logic mate!

You may well be right, I guess we just need to wait on Zach speaking up.

Here is a photo of P. Serpens.

I can see the similarities between both the Serpens and Glabella - gorgeous red stems, and mini Philodendron shaped leaves.

But from what I can see from photos Glabella has a more upright growth whereas Serpens has the long, running growth which you see pictured.

Either way, both lovely looking plants. Serpens has been a favourite of mine for a while now since I got a small cutting in, its an absolute weed!

Sorry for the stray off topic Zach, great looking viv and wonderful frogs.

Im certainly warming to the Ameerega species...

Regards,
Richie
