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...
