So I am super excited this evening. I was checking out the vivs and seen a new addition in the Escudo viv. I little tiny hopper in there! I had no idea they were even caring for tads, so it was just, BAM, surprise lol. Anyhow, here are a couple of pics I was able to get. Not great but still wanted to share.

I am at it again...more new tanks from Wes arrived yesterday. I started building on one today and have some tree fern attached to the back and one wall. I really like the size of this one, it's 28x23x24, it should be pretty cool once I get it done.

Impressive Dustin! You are going to have to update your frog room shots after these additions!

A couple of pics I was able to snap the other day on my phone. Siquirres pumilio I acquired from Justin a few months back. I like these a lot but they sure are shy. I hardly ever get to see them, let alone two at a time. Such a shame, but I suppose it is quite rewarding when I do see them. I have a trio, I am yet to hear any calling though...

Nice to see the 'True' wire / baker's racks. I really like the ventilation and they are plenty strong. Great for hot states, such as FL.

Even good ol' Barry White has had no affect. (affect or effect?... :oops:)
They are next to my Escudo and Basti's both of which call every day.

Lower the lighting? New tanks with sparse foliage and too bright lights ? Just throwing that out there, haven't see your whole room or that specific tank.

Thanks for the input Phil. The tank is lit by 2, T8 bulbs, although I don't think its bright, maybe the frogs do. Here is a picture of their viv which is an 18x18x24 Exo.

I don't think your lighting is particularly bright or glaring. You probably have all females. :wink:
BTW I've found the frogs like the Rev. Al Green better than Barry White.

Nah, that's actually algae covered sphagnum.
