I don't keep them personally, but I know that one of the site sponsors, Alpha Pro Breeders, is very involved in breeding them.

I came close to but since I am in college the fruit flies would be hard to take care of.

I don't personally have any at home, however I take care of 15 leucomelas, and a pair of Tinctorius at the store I work for. We are currently in the process of setting up a 300 gallon dart frog display.

I have a pair of auratus:

They are cool little critters. If I were you I would look up and down to find a local breeder if at all possible before making a purchase. I got mine for $15 a piece. These same frogs go for 35-40 online + 35-40 on top of that for shipping.

Make sure to do your research and thicken your skin if you plan on posting to dendroboard... it's not the friendliest forum to a noob.

WOW!! Thank you all. I was hoping to see some builds. They look awesome!

I'm in the same boat as Razorworm, but not quite so many things on my to-do list. I gotta buy and set up a 29g for fish first. It will take me a while to do the research on the vivariums and the frogs so I don't think I am getting ahead of myself.

Please keep the comments and links coming. Even your mistakes would be helpful to keep me from doing the same.

Thanks
