Default The Pikachus Introduction :-)

Hi! My name is Nick! I live in Corona,California and im around the beginner/intermediate range. ive kept Baja Brown Tree Frogs,Pacman Frogs, and a few green trees. Sadly They all died from old age. But Recently ive been doing reptiles and had a extra tank leftover. So for a 1-2 months ive been researching about dart frogs and they seem perfect for my room which is around 70-75 at the most. My questions might sometimes be derpy but,bear with me! Thank you for reading my intro!

Welcome to the hobby! You are surrounded by some great froggers just a short distance in either direction from you. I actually used to live and work in Corona. Feel free to ask questions if you have trouble with the search feature. If you'd like, I'd be more than happy to show you my frog room and help you get started in the right direction. I'm only a 30-40 minute drive from you.

I was thinking either a Dendrobates Leucomelas or Phyllobates terribilis

I think a froakie, or possibly a croagunk would fit in a 10 gallon but a toxicroak wouldn't fit.(Pokemon joke) anyways welcome! I'm new to the hobby I've had darts for justs over 6 months now and in just as addicted to them as Pokemon lol. Ill be getting my 3rd dart frog tank next week. So since I'm so new I can't answer too many questions but you can always message me if you have a question about care or how to set up a simple vivarium. You have come to the right place though these guys are great here!

On a small topic like that, it's not really necessary to make another topic. Terribillis have a bit more sensitive skin compared to most darts, so I would for sure go with Leucs. Perfect beginner frogs, really good for a 10 gallon in comparison to P. terribilis.

I agree with fantastica either do some fine spot Leucs or some dendro tinct Bakhuis. I'd personally go with Bakhuis. They are soo cool and their patterns vary so much.

And I thought normal froggers were nerds.
