Adelphobates galactonotus “Red”

The red form of galactonotus is always a popular frog, due in part to the fact that its one of the few red frogs in the hobby. The color is a rich dark red, not a bright apple red. This is the shyest of the galactonotus that I work with, but is not “too” shy in my opinion.

This form of galactonotus seems a bit more reluctant to breed, and as with all my galactonotus, the breeding they do seems to occur with little rhyme or reason. Long periods of inactivity are followed by flurries of breeding, during which eggs are laid every five to seven days, with the typical clutch size being four to eight eggs.

We have three different and unrelated bloodlines on hand, but its difficult to keep bloodlines straight when breeding groups of frogs!
