Hyloxalus azureiventris Photo Journal

I have been keeping a trio of Hyloxalus azureiventris for some time now and would love to see some more pictures of them. I decided to start this thread in response to the D. Truncatus photo journal.

They are a slim, black frog with stripes running along their backs that can be gold, orange or blue green. Their underbellies are blue. The shade of the stripes seem to differ depending on what angle you view them at. Very aesthetically appealing in my opinion. It's hard to catch their true beauty in a photo.

I've found them to be male heavy and I'm hoping to come across a female at some point.

With out any further adieu here are some pictures; I hope to get my hands on a decent camera and provide better quality photos in the future.

Have you found them to be aggressive? Not twords each other, but twords you? May sound like an odd question, but I had a trio of them for probably a year (traded them off, they just didnt do it for me). They were the only ones in my "collection" that would actually kind of go after me at feeding time. Kind of hard to describe. I think it was a territorial thing, but they would jump at me, even bouncing off my hand when I went into the tank to feed them. I havent had that with any other dart. I think they looked at me as an intruder into their territory and were defending their turf at least that was my "impression".
I agree about color/markings too, at a glance, not that much there, but when you look close, a very pretty frog.

I had 4 together in a viv for a couple years and they behaved very much like P. vitattus in regards to feeding. Aggressive "launching" feeding mode. Kind of an ambush hunter but with a very pronounced and powerful lunge.

I haven't seen them to be aggressive at all towards me.
There was a time though I was considering splitting them up, as two seemed to be picking on the third.
They all eat well and get along fine to the best of my knowledge now, so I've kept them in their trio.
