I'm thinking about doing 2 R. Imitator vertical 10 gallons, just cuz they're smaller.

|pmcarbrey||I just recently started carrying dart frogs in the shop and I love them! I was actually about to post this exact thread (but three pages of going through useless search results brought me here!)|

I've been breeding Azureus for about a year now. It's surprisingly easy.
You actually do have to scrape the glass from algae every once and a while. My favorite part is how easy the plants are to care for. Snails often find there way into the viv, but it is usually beneficial to have them. The diseases that the frogs can get are often fatal. A diseased frog is more often than not a weak frog. It is usually better in the long run if they get eliminated from a disease rather than stick around because the owner is fighting for them. As long as the frog is healthy it won't catch a disease or infection and a healthy frog is very easily achieved.
If you want to get into the hobby make sure to get an account on Dendroboard. I've seen and received amazing and helpful advice from the people on the forum. I can also hook you up with some frogs if you have a vivarium ready for them.

|ylot77||You might be surprised at how many people keep and breed dart frogs. I've been doing it for a few years, and it's actually much easier than keeping a planted aquarium. Right now I've got 11 different species. Fun stuff|

|Soothing Shrimp||Any dart frogs give live birth?|

I just got into darts about a year ago. They havent started breeding yet but are well on the way
The bugs arent much of a problem, but then again im only doing fruit flies and springtails. My isopod culture kind of crashed.

|Nubster||No, tore it down and turned it into a shrimp tank...lol...but now I am tearing that down and no plans for the tank. Might sell it actually. I briefly thought about turning my 40B into a vivarium and maybe give frogs a try again. Not sure though. It can be so costly, especially for the frogs which are often $40 a piece or more.|

Nubster that is an amazing setup. Do you still have the tank setup? If so you should try again, it looks like a great home for darts.
No but I know someone that does breed. I forgot the name as it has been a while, but they are the common blue. Starts with an a I believe. I can get them really cheap though, so I want to have them in the future.

I tried keeping them but they didn't last long. Unfortunately it seemed that I received sick frogs from the start and despite getting several different meds from a herp vet, I couldn't get them to pull through. Disheartened I didn't try again. Sucks to cause I put a lot of work and money in the setup. Here's a shot of their 75 gallon home...
