    Hey, I hope this will be a good place for discussing both. Also there's a section for other pets if you want to talk about your geckos!
    Welcome.

    Do you or are you in the process of building a Vivarium for the darts? If you plan on getting darts and haven't started the process of a viv yet you might want to focus on that before getting the frogs. Its good to plant it and have it grow in abit first and to make sure you can keep your temps and humidity levels were they should be. And welcome to the forum.

    Hi, I don't have frogs yet except for a white's, I just acquired 6 tadpoles of Anthonyi yesterday and have them set up in individual cups. I couldn't get Indian Almond leaves nor Java Moss, but instead substituted aged oak leaves and a similar strain of moss. I used conditioned water and have some food from the breeder. I will start to set up a vivarium soon. Any advice would be appreciated.....Thanks!

    http://www.frogforum.net/showthread.php?t=32167 Here is a link to the basics and common questions about building a viv. I don't know how long these tads will take to fully develop but I really suggest you try to start your viv as soon as possible. Between doing backgrounds and false bottoms and letting things cure before you can advance to next step of the build is going to take some time. And im pretty sure these guys wont do good in a fake planted tank, They need extremely high humidity so you pretty much have to close the whole top off which stops air flow. The live plants will create the oxygen for them and will give them cover. If you check out the vivarium building section theres a couple more threads on there about builds, and if you any questions I would post them there. Hopefully Bill The deranged chipmunk will see it, him and a few others are the viv gurus on this site.

    Congrats on getting tads. E. anthonyi 'Santa Isabel' (I'm assuming) are great little frogs. I keep the zarayunga locale variant. They take about 2 months to go from tad to froglet. A lot depends on the temp they are housed at. Warmer helps them develop quicker and cooler takes longer. And you will want to raise them up for a month or so before adding them to a viv, so you have time. I would, however, recommend you get on building their permanent home soon though.

    Sure. They are almost identical. There are very subtle differences, the main one being their stripes are a bit more green than the SI.
