awesome Glenn. Please take some more pics of your frog room. I want to run a cover / POTM shot of your room some time, if that's ok with you.

Close! The Colbalts are actually bakhuis.

They indeed come from UE and are referred to as Blue/Bronze but I think they're the same thing. They were very shy up until they hit breeding age and now I have to push them out of the way to get to the petri dish. lol They're very variable in colour and pattern. Great frogs!

Yep, 24 x 24. Ummm, I'll have to get a count. :wink:

Love the Imis, but I like all frogs. :mrgreen: Having all that calling adds to the room HUGE. I have some in pairs and some in 2.1 trios. They're in 15" cubes right now and I'm in the process of moving them into 12 x 12 x 18" Zoo Meds. I'm going to pair the ones off that aren't already. The tanks are old and a mess right now...

So true, Stu!

Here's a crappy cell phone pic of what I'm working on now. Just a bit of foam on the sides of the top row and they're ready for silicone/coco fibre.

I've got this image in my head......... :lol:
"Oh Laura, darling, i'll just knock out 9 vivs before tea,if thats ok "
Seriously glenn when do you hope to have this phase of the build sorted out,going deeper do you intend to move the imis once you go into the down cycle of your breeding year? I've never really contemplated this side of things before,i guess i'm trying to circumvent this really,but its still fascinating to know the thought processes as it could well have implications for our summersi at least,that is if some more real ones can be found here :roll:

Not quite, Stu. It's more like,

They haven't bred a whole lot since I've had them and I'm hoping a move will get them going. I hope to have the vivs up and running in a month. It takes a while for the silicone to cure, but I still like this method.

Thanks! That moss is called blanket moss and it's from UE. It is slowly spreading.

Started another dozen 18" cubes. These tanks will be very basic and will be for breeding pairs and froglet grow outs.

Hey Glenn, I'm trying the paper plates in the ff cultures. They seem to be working well. Thanks for the tip!!

I am using his technique as well have had some meltage but fixed it with more paper plates.
Casper has had good results as well, he uses it for his hydei cultures.
