Hey all,
I have a few questions for those of you with "thumbnails" , specifically with vents. I have finally moved my 2 vents into their new enclosure, a 30 gallon set vertically with a horizontally openning door. I put up about a half a dozen or so bromeliads (mostly neorogelias) on a branch to simulate an upper canopy.
On another post I asked about film canisters and the information was very good. I would like some further information about them. How many canisters is a recommended amount to place around the enclosure? With your experience have the frogs prefered the canisters or will they just use the bromeliads? Also how many vents can you keep in a tank? I thought that there would be some competition if you had a large group, but after seeing the film canister orgy :shock: I have to question that realm of thought. Wouldn't the females potentially eat the others' eggs?
The two little guys have been hiding very well and I can only find one of the two each time I look around for them. They must be a little overwhelmed at the amount of space they have now since they crawl down deep into the bromeliad leaf axials. In your experience how long has it taken for a vent to get settled and start some reproductive behavior (calling and such) I've had the 2 since last November and they were held for me for about a month or 2, so they should be at or very near maturity.
I know that these are a lot of questions, I just want to get an idea of people's experience.

Thanks in advance.

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?
