well morph didnt get back to me regarding the gooseys :roll:
:P
so when i saw these fellas i thought id grab a couple .
ive got em in an exo with water at the front & land at the back so at least when they are submerged i can see em a bit .
apparently they spend much of the time in water & buried but so far these have spent most their time on land .
i'll see how they go & adapt things to suit

I sent you a PM saying they'd been sold out :|
And yeah your right, they hardly ever go in the water, especially the red ones, you'd want to give them a set up very similar to dartfrogs, a good palidarium if you can. What are you feeding them on?
They are mainly predators.

They should like the blood worm, the only thing i have ever noticed mine eat are crickets, i tried fish food and catfish algae pellets but no use :/
I've just stuck to whats worked so far, havent really bothered with veg, apparantly wild ones were found to have eaten tonnes of the stuff, they do like to pick at live moss though, going to leave a bit of fruit in there tonight see if they take to that.

panicked a bit when i came home today ,
at the front of the tank in the water was a very limp looking crab :|
i picked it out & thought it felt a little light :hmm:
after messing with it for a minute the whole top of the carapace flipped open .
its a moult :clap:
a quick mooch round the tank revealed a sparkly new soft crab ,
so from doom & gloom to smiles in a short space of time 8)
