    I want to get a couple dart frogs (: I'm going to house a canyon tree frog in here and make sure all is well first (after I let the filter run for a week or so that is)

    What would you recommend? I was thinking D leucomelas or D azureus probably - I'm not too picky. I lived in Madagascar for a couple years so a Madagascar glass frog would be awesome too - I'll keep my eyes out for one and if I can't find one maybe I'll get a dart frog or two.

    My canyon tree frogs are loving their new set up - you may have to look close to see them.

    Good luck getting a Madagascan glass frog, with the exception of mantellas, tomato frogs and one or two boophis species, not much is available. Glass frogs in general are hard to come by. Living in Madagascar for a while, I'm sure you realize how stringent their export laws have become, surprising considering the widespread corruption.

    I like the underwater light, btw. I'm not normally a fan of them. I find them to be a bit gimmicky, but yours is done well.

    that's a tough call. a pair of either would work. but with the lack of climbing areas, i would say the azureus. but they will definitely need more cover.

    Thanks! Yeah Madagascar is not too great with customs/visas/trade it's crazy over there! But waaay neat! Imagine the frog setups you could accumulate if you lived in Madagascar and could just go out with some Malagasy people to help you catch frogs on the weekends!

    Azureas would be awesome. I'll work on getting some more cover in there. At latest, May is an expo here (salt lake area) so the tank should be plenty ready by then (:
