Everyone pretty much covered it here but I would like to add that it all comes down to what you want to do. The canisters are easy to take out and remove eggs from. The broms provide a more natural look. They will lay in both, but in my experience the canisters are a better choice despite the aesthetics. Mine tended to lay in the canisters and sleep in the phytotelmata of the broms. Only once in two yearsthat I had broms in there did they lay in the broms. I have used black and white canisters and theys seem to make no difference...it is all in the placement. Place a few on the ground a some at the top. make sure that they have plants to climb to access the canisters at the top. I have also noticed that the canisters must be positioned at at an angle less than 90 degrees, otherwise they are less likely to lay in them. I guess this makes sense due to the angle of broms leaves. Hope that helps!

This helps out very much. Thanks for the info. I'll keep you posted on any breeding progress, that is if I have a pair. Is the only way to tell is vocalization or is there body shape differences between the sexes. One of mine definately seemed a little plum near the bottom. Is that indicative of being a female (I don't want to offend anybody here)... as with tincs and some of the larger frogs?

Ben,

The female tends to be slightly larger and definately more plump. Watch them when they are close together- sometimes you may not hear the male calling but you will see the vocal sac going. If you have a picture of them next to each other please post it and I can most likely tell you. I have had great success in sexing them and am almost 100% accurate.
