Nope. I'll give the tank a week or so to set up. I dont have the cash anyways. Green Ig and Snakes have to eat and such. Im 17 have a free schedule (graduated early) and still cant get a job! So cash isnt at its highest right now. Im looking into a few i dont want an aruatus as they are shy. How about Tincs would they be out more? Or Azerues? Which is better i like both and Black Jungle has some nice Tincs right now no Azerues.

If you want something that isn't shy, then go wit leucs, from what i've heard, they are more active.

My boldest darts are probably the Phyllobates terribilis. They are beautiful and active! I would go with one them or the tincs!

Lady tincts may fight, and a sexed pair or already sexed tincts, as two males might add to your expenses. With your first dart frogs, you shouldn't have to worry about how they will get along. I'd go with a couple of the groupie frogs, as mentioned above, such as the D. leucomelas, or P. terribilis, being the least expensive, as well as being quite entertaining, bold and fun to watch. Others that do well in groups may be more costly. Among these, my very favorite of all darts is the D. galactonotus, orange splash backs, but they are still relatively pricey.

You could also consider other auratus morphs. It's the blue form (which are the ones I have) that have a reputation for being particularly shy, and indeed, deserve this reputation, in my experience. Although I have no personal experience with other morphs of auratus, I understand that not all of them are shy.

Do solo frogs do ok? I hear alot of people always having more than 1 frog. Do lone frogs get depressed and wont eat or are they usually ok alone?

Solo frogs, like I am, do just fine all by themselves, don't get depressed or lonely, or at least don't fade away and die over it. However, they are a lot more active and interesting to watch when there's more than one.

Lone frogs are great! My terribilis, when I had just one, which he still lives alone at this time, would come to the front of the tank after he got used to me and beg for food. He would also call quite a bit when I would drop in the fruit flies - he loves FF like a fat kid loves cake! hehe Anyhow, I am very partial to the P. terribilis.

I just got 4 auratus and them being shy is sort of true. But it varies from each individual. MY smallest one is out almost all the time hoping around while one of the larger ones is always hiding. the other two are sort of in between. so it really is a case by case basis. i do have them in a 40 gallon tho so you wan to make sure you have the space.

One thing i must say tho is, once its feeding time all 4 are ripping around the tank snatching up flys.

The main thing is to get what appeals to you personally. If it's terribilis, you wouldn't have to worry about sexing when adding more later. And as stated, they are certainly personable. Mine, even in a group will beg and look skyward toward the "Lord of the Flies." It's really tempting to over feed them.

Have you checked out the green and bronze auratus? I haven't priced them, but they are supposed to be among the bolder forms, and they are really very beautiful.

Just let the mold run its course or buy some springtails. Either way the mold is nothing to be worried about.

Alright i stopped misting for almost a week so it got a bit dry. Then misted it heavily (what a work out). All the mold just washed away. Is that ok and i'll give the springtails a try.
