Default New to frogs

I at this time have reptiles and would like to set up a tank for some dart frogs. I am needing as much information as possible. I have heard that they are easy to care for once you get some information on them. would like to talk to someone to find out some info on them.

Welcome to Dendroboard and the extremely addictive poison dart frog hobby. There is so so SO much info on this board for you to research and learn about these beautiful critters. May I suggest that you start in the Beginner Discussion forum with a sticky called Good Threads to read for Beginners. This will get you started.

Once you done enough research to start your hobby, and I'm thinking a minimum of several months' worth, most folks around here will be happy to answer your questions and help you out. The more you know and understand the poison dart hobby, the more you will appreciate their environment, their care, and their husbandry.

best regards,
kristi

When I started doing my research before building my first tank I used saurian.net and the DB caresheets which have quite a bit of info to compare such as skill level required, animal size, temperament, etc. After a while you get a sense of the required effort and move on from there into fun stuff, tank building!

Welcome to darts. It's the only hobby outside of marine aquariums that has such a variety of colors and just as addictive.

Welcome.. very addictive.. I would say a local hobbyist if you can find one would be your best bet of a quick injection of knowledge.

That's gonna be your best friend....
I would search the forum for a few months before doing anything.
I've been cruising this forum for 6 months and I'm still learning new things.
I know I could build an awesome tank but I don't wanna jump into it just yet.
Patience is a requirement :P

I have reptiles too...I'm curious as to what all you have.
I have...bearded dragon, green anole, bahaman anole, golden gecko, house gecko ball python, and a blue tailed skink/5 lined lizard.
