Default Are these eggs fertile?

Brand new to the hobby literally got my Dendrobates tinctorius 'azureus' around a month ago. They are around 1.5 years old and have never been together before but are a confirmed male and female. I have heard calling recently and I wasn't looking for eggs til today in which I was feeding and saw a blob on the corner. I removed the leaf put it in a cup and slightly misted. If anyone else can help thanks

They certainly are fertile and look to be developing nicely (:

Wow thanks that's insane, they are barely breeding age and this is the first clutch at least that I found I sadly don't know when they were laid because they were in the back in a shaded area haha. Anything I should know? I put the lead in a 32oz deli cup and misted so that there was some water. Do I need to keep them in the dark with the lid on or what. Thanks

No problem! I remember the first time I found eggs from my azureus - I was so excited haha. But caring for them is super easy and you can find everything you need to know about raising them here. But to answer your question about the dark - no, they don't need to be kept in the dark but leaving the lid on with just a small crack or a few holes in it would be best, just to keep the humidity up. But it's not entirely necessary as long as you're keeping them damp.

Congrats. They are definitely capable of breeding at 1.5 years old. Do you have a top on the deli cup you put the leaf into?

Yes I have the lid on I misted the cup til there was enough water to partially cover the eggs.
