That photo needs a sun glasses warning :cool: It looks great 😃
That AI Prime packs a punch for such a diminutive little light!

Great work, all looking good

Do you follow troy goldberg on youtube
I watch his videos occasionally - there's not a lot of choice with this hobby - compared to aquascaping or reefing channels for example!

If anyone remembers, last year I bought 4 unsexed Oophaga pumilio 'isla colon' which all turned out to be male.....

Well i've been offered a 1.1 proven pair that i'm collecting tomorrow .... along with tadpoles they're caring for in a bromeliad - fingers crossed that they'll continue that care in the new tank.

It's a bit too soon as the tank is very fresh, not grown in and a little unstable with regards humidity .... but it's an offer I couldn't refuse - just means they'll need a bit more TLC than the other tanks :)

Did you collect them, if so how are they all doing?

I was busy adding new bromeliads to the tank containing the suspected 2 x male Pumilio 'red frog beach' and removing / cleaning / replacing other plants at the same time.

One neoregelia in particular, whilst removed, was shook to remove the old water and loose algae and out this popped :



Bar constant calling from the male, i've seen relatively little interaction (with them staying on opposite levels of the tank), breeding behaviour least of all eggs!

Suffice to say I was shocked!

I suppose I can now suggest I have a 1.1 pair of Oophaga pumilio 'red frog beach', meaning I now have :

- 1.1 Oophaga pumilio escudo / 2 morphed froglets / tadpoles
- 1.2 Oophaga pumilio rio branco / 1 morphed froglet / tadpoles
- 1.1 Oophaga pumilio isla colon drago / 2 morphed froglets / tadpoles
- 1.1 Oophaga pumilio bastimentos red frog beach / tadpole

Orchid sp. blooming (unsure on the species)





Begonia 'thelmae' blooming :



Nice christmas moss growth :



Think it's about time I start a new thread for these tanks
