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!)

Elliot 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.

No partial water changes, scraping the glass from algae, EI dosing, CO2, cleaning filters, snail, vacuuming the substrate. What else?

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.
Those would probably be Azureus, beautiful frogs.

Soothing Shrimp Any dart frogs give live birth?
10-12-2012 07:31 PM
gardennub 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.

Great timing with this thread!

This morning at work, I saw that the dart frog exhibit had some tadpoles. I'm used to seeing amphibian eggs in pools of water, but these were on the leaves of a plant about halfway up the tank. Each tadpole had (what looked like) its' own drop of water to develop in. I don't have a lot of herp knowledge, but it was really cool to see.
Depending on the species some eggs will be laid on leaves and then the tadpoles moved to water when they hatch. Its pretty neat to watch...

Crispino L Ramos AAPE (Arizona Aquatic Plant Enthusiasts) had their meeting at a member's house who owns Arizona Dendrobate Ranch - http://www.azdr.com/ . I was able to attend the meeting; he and his wife has a great collection of dart frogs.

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 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...
