Jacko's windfall of frogs!
Kept telling myself id post about these...
Through a rather unfortunate happenstance I received a large quantity of poison dart frogs... To sum it up a friend of a friends friend's father passed away and left a rather large collection of animals and since I was the only person any of them knew that had experience with the little buggers they came to be mine.
So now for pics... Temporary housings area:
D. Tinctorious ”cobalt”... Received 11 of these
D. Auratus ”green”... 5 of these
D. Leucomelas ”nominant(?)”... 2 of these, though only 1 survived the move

R. Imitator ”veradero”
Also not pictured is a D. Auratus ”chocolate” but he's too fast!
thought I'd share!

They are awesome Jacko. You can send some my way if you have too many, I like the R. Imitator "veradero".When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
A moderator on a fish forum should be able to identify an oscar... Don't you think?
Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me

Awwww cute! I recently started keeping these little guys and have 2 tincs.I hate hearing people say "it's only a $3/$5/$1 fish/shrimp, so it's ok if it dies, I can just get another." It's still an animal! All animals should be treated like they're worth $10,000.

I don't know a lot about frogs at all, but you guys look great
I'm always amazed at some of the colors frogs can have.If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
