This species has always been on my wish list so Im really excited now I have a trio which I got off a Uk breeder last weekend
Absolutely gorgeous thumbnail species - still settling in so just took a couple of very quick pictures.
Hope you like them!

Had some great success with these lovely darts. Saw some movement a few weeks back in one of the film cannisters I have in their viv (placed there after hearing some calling) and look what I found:

Even at this early stage you can just make out the chromatophores on its back.
But heres how it progressed:

I got myself a group of R. ventrimaculata (French Guana) about a month ago. The first eggs have been layed allready. The Ranitomeya dart frogs are truely my favourite.

Saw a lot of movement in one of the vertical film cannisters and found two of the vanzolinis with the male transporting:

    @axolotl nerd, rads, the cycle has crashed or the tank wasnt fully cycled to start with. Remove the animals to a seperate tank or tub, give 100% daily water changes. It can take a while to cycle a tank if its yr first time.

    Hey guys! We had our first unexpected hot day and I was an idiot and forgot to put on the fan for my axolotl tank. When I came to feed her at around 7, I noticed the tank was 75 degrees!! It has never been this warm, it’s always a stable 67ish without a fan. It was only this warm for today (yesterday it was normal temps), and I immeditately got the fan on when I saw. It is down to 69 degrees now. Is my axie going to be ok with the increase in temperature for a day?

    Hi guys, I have a dwarf axolotl. Got him/her in February and since it’s grown to around 4.5 inches it has constantly been constipated. Having to fridge the poor thing every few weeks. Has anyone else got a dwarf and had these problems?

    Hey guys, one of my axolotls has developed some fungus on one of her gills, I've started salt baths, but do salt baths need to be done in the fridge, some people said I should have her in the fridge permanently during the process, even when not in the salt bath, is this true? As some people said its unnecessary as long as the tank is below 20°c which it is. Also do I need to get them both out the tank and clean it out?
