Re: Dart frogs #4
Never known anyone to keep frogs before, they are so awesome and pretty. Lovely set up. Are they easy to keep?

Re: Dart frogs #5
They are very undemanding to keep except when it comes to feeding. They will only accept tiny live food such as aphids, springtails newly hatched crickets and fruitflies all f which have to be cultured in fairly large quantities.

Re: Dart frogs #6
They're rather striking aren't they Lovely colours. I know nothing about dart frogs, are they straightforward to breed or is it quite an achievement to get them to do so?

Re: Dart frogs #8
Mine are relatively easy to breed, misting their viv more and providing more food is all that's required to trigger breeding.

CurmudgeonlyOldMan, I've kept those too and D. auratus.
I had two blue like yours and an odd grey blue one.

Re: Dart frogs #9
That's a great video, they're much more active than I was expecting (although I'm not quite sure why I thought they wouldn't be doing much!) They're like little stop motion characters!

I didn't know you used to keep dart frogs COM, was it just the blue ones or did you have others?

Re: Dart frogs #10
No just the Blue ones. Sort of got into accidentally when I saw one and thought "I know exactly where that can go. I had a spare 2 foot cube tank and he lived in there amongst the plants and moist litter.
