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.

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

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

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.

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!)

O never did get the dart frogs. My addiction to shrimping took over everything, but I still like following along.
