Dyscophus guineti is one of the two most common Tomato frogs available in the hobby. D. guineti are often orange to red in colour. Females are larger and tend to be more deep red compared to the males.

This species occurs widely along the eastern rainforest belt of Madagascar. They are reliably only known from primary forest, usually in areas that are relatively flat and where streams are slow-moving, forming large, almost stagnant parts and side-ponds. They are docile and can cohabitate with other tomato frogs.

Temperatures should range in the mid to low 70s/ 21-23 C, and humidity around 50-70%. A body of dechlorinated water is recommended for the tank. A tank size of 20 gallons will be sufficient for one to two frogs.
