About that meat eating thing. Iguana's can digest meat just fine. It's a short digestive track of a carnivore type thing that has trouble eating plants, not the other way around.

Yes, that pic is appropriate. A good visual reminder as to why you don't mess with iguanas. ;D

Still it doesn't mean you should feed a plant eater a lot of meat. I seem to remember some reason why Green Iguanas shouldn't eat a lot.

That iguana looks pist. I never fed mine anything but vegetable matter. Hopefully after seeing that pic, no one will mix iggies with anything else.

What are your views on mixing Phyllobates, Dendrobates and Epideobates in the same tank. I plan on 3 Dendrobates Auratus or Auzerous and 3 Tricolors (either phyllo or epidobates). I figure to have them a 75 gal viv with a water feature and sump to keep them seperated a bit. Also the water feature is going to be part of a 55 gal planted tank setup with tetras and cories.

If everything seems to be doing well, I have obviously overlooked something.

mixing Dendrobates/Phylobates/Epidobates would work, because theres no chance of hybridizing.

I agrre with moe, but compettion for food, size of darts, etc. are all factors. Go to kingsnake no, since Justin Yeager's back for a while and ask his thoughts. He's on AIM now, but I don't wanna bug him.

phyllobates tend to be bigger than most, if you are going with bicolor's or terriblis. they would hog the food. try sticking with smaller terrerstrial with arboreal. But they can be very territorial and may end up fighting, or just being stressed out. I have kept auratus with leucomelas, and had no problems, But this does run the risk of hybridizing. if that is a word, im not gonna spell check so whatever. Just destroy the eggs if you do get them, But i never got them when i had those together.

As usual, sometimes it takes me a million years to catch on to something. When I said that the guy laughing at the frog eatin' the anole was deranged, I was just going on what the previous poster said; that he was laughing at the frog eating the anole.
I meant that he was evil, if he combined the species and sat there laughing as they ate one another. Not evil for using them as feeders!

Geesh - it has been like a milliom years ago on that one Gin - I totally forgot about it. I knew that you weren't attacking out of context, it just was getting misrepresented and so I wanted to point out the facts with it is all. Just me showing one of my little quirks to defend those I hold so dear
But always nice to see such dedicated posters, always covering the bases.
Cheers!

Please registure and join the family. In the meantime, please try to avoid multiple posts. Many here work a full day and don't get to respond to nay posts until later in the evening.

If you need general frog info, feel free to post under "General"

Disturbing picture but to the point! Im glad i asked befor mixing, i love my tree frogs and would do anyting to keep them happy and healthy i went into a petstore some time ago they had about 15-20 firebellied toads in a ten gallon tank. it was set up like a toad or tree frog tank with a small water dish and bark logs and branches. when a lady was looking to buy one she saw the two dead ones in the back and asked why they were dieing the owner say "i dont know" I turned around and gave him a piece of my mind

Suggestion 1--Read the rest of this particular topic. Reasons on why mixing frogs with other species of frogs, or frogs and newts, isn't so great have been listed and re-listed. It's great information that you should look into beforehand.

None are good together. Absolutely none. Read the rest of this topic, all of our opinions are there. Mixing is not a good idea for any one but an extremely wealthy expert who could afford to build an entire room or even wing dedicated to them, and you would be suprised how little you can even add safely even in the largest enclosure.

And you need a fairly large tank to provide a suitible 50/50 breeding enclosure. What size do you have or are you looking at?

I plan to have a 27 x 48 foot greenhouse someday. Even then I wouldn't experiment with nature. Maybe if I was an expert with the Biosphere at my disposal, NO probably not then either.

It is not EVER reccomended that you put any other aninmal in with a frog. and only one species of frog per tank.
