Hi from Belgium
At last I decided to register on Dendroboard after seeing that when I googled dartfrog related subjects, Dendroboard was almost always one of the highest in the list of sites where I could find answers to my questions.
30 years ago I started with the dart frog hobby, stopped for a few years (raising kids, building house, the things most of us would put the hobby on hold for), and started again a few years ago.
I am Belgian and also registered on the Belgian, Dutch and German forums.
I have currently the following frogs:
1.2.0 Oophaga pumilio bastimentos 'Red Frog Beach'
1.2.0 Ranitomeya reticulata
0.0.3 Ranitomeya sirensis(lamasi) panguana
1.2.2 Ranitomeya vanzolinii
0.0.5 Ranitomeya variabilis 'highland'
0.0.3 Ranitomeya fantastica 'Monte Cristo'
1.2.2 Ranitomeya amazonica 'Iquitos Red'
1.1.3 Dendrobates auratus 'El Cope'
The auratus' are laying regularly but till today non of the clutches develop (mold).
The amazonica, vanzolinii, and variabilis are breeding well (all the clutches are ferile and developing well but from some clutches the tadpoles die in the first week in the water, other do well so I'm not sure what the problem is here).
The O.pumilio are active and calling all day long but no sign of eggs, tads or froglets yet.
The other ranitomeya are still to young but hopefully they will prove to be productive as well.
The species that are on my wishlist is Oophaga pumilio 'Rio Colubre' or Oophaga pumilio 'cauchero' (blue pumilio's) but they are very hard to find over here.
Finally, I would like to ask for some understanding concerning the mistakes in my writing. I understand, speak, and read English but my writing must contain several mistakes, sorry for this.
