All my frogs come out and sunbathe - some do it quite sneakily too. The light is shone through the front glass doors of the vivs (all of which are Optiwhite low iron glass) and most frogs will come right to the front of the viv - around 6 inches from the bulb at first then slowly work their way back from ituntill they have had enough
I have definately seen a colouring up of some species (BriBri, Colon, whitefoot and redhead being the most noticable). I think there are benefits for the frogs, many which we probably don't have a clue about so will continue to use it.
Thank you Marcus for posting this picture...didnt mean to steal your thunder but Ive been doing this on my tanks every other day for 20 min with a 5.0 buld... definitely brighter colors for sure!!!
