Default Golden Mantella

Just seen these and was wondering are they a species of dart frog or not?
I read they like cooler conditions but apart from that are they any different to care for compared to darts?

Golden mantellas are in a different family and genus than poison frogs. They do need to be kept below 80 F, preferrably below 78 F. they can eat larger food than many poison frogs, especially considering their small size. They are more seasonal breeders than most poison frogs seem to be.

Devin's website that someone else linked to is good info. you can also check out my websiter for a little info. In general, mantella discussions occur on DB's sister site
feel free to e-mail me with questions as well.

they also need to eat more than fruit flies in order to produce healthy offspring.
