    …also known as the Oriental Fire-bellied toad. I’ve always liked amphibians as well as fish and yesterday the chance to get what is apparently a spawned pair of these was too much to resist! This will be the precursor to a poison arrow frog project, but more of that later

    Hey Kris nope not the same ones. A customer brought these in and I just bought them from him direct. They’re in a small tank at the minute, until I can get hold of some materials to build them a proper house. Pics tonight hopefully.

    Hi Matt,
    I kept a few many moons ago but they were dark green bodied probably B. Bombina .I kept them in a tank in a north facing conservatory with no heating and European tree frogs as a come and go companion (there was another 2 tanks with different levels of water (clogged with plants ).They were very active and would climb on their island when I was presenting food to them .They didnt like beatle larva ,they took them causiously as if they were getting nipped but I liked to offer them to give variety to their diet ! They would have choosen small worms every day ,sucking them like spagetti ,LoL .They would use one hand to grasp the worm which also removed slime and soil. Unfortunately one day some one gave me some American bullfrog tadpoles which I put in their tank .All was happy till the next spring when all was quiet except for one huge Tadpole !!! it had eaten its mates + my firebellied toads !!
    Hope yours are doing fine bud.
    All the best,
    G.John

    Doing great thanks mate. They’ve been calling a lot in the last few weeks, and I’d never heard them do it before. Time for a bigger tank I reckon. Did you have any luck breeding yours? Any tips much appreciated!
