lots of startup questions... need lots of help/advice
hey there! new to the forum and to this hobby!
my buddy just informed me of dart frogs today actually, and im already interested. so, I have a few simple "heard it a million times before" questions. my plan, is to use either a 10g or 20g tank..what are my options? I want to keep the cost down as much as possible. Having said that, for a 10g tank... what am I looking at for startup cost? Secondly, maintenance , what's it like in this hobby? Hate to say it, but it's always hard to find time, I have a saltwater tank up and running so I am sure I can handle the husbandry. Just curious...
are the dart frogs lethal? as in, can one harm me?
how much are dart frogs? (recommendations welcomed)
what do these frogs diet consist of?
how many frogs can be kept in a 10g tank?
lastly but CERTAINLY not least... how loud are these critters? i have a family of light-sleepers! when I say light, I mean light ! haha
So just the basics here folks, need to make sure I want to set this up, and if I can even afford it right now. It doesn't sound too pricy, correct me if I am wrong.
