Default Strawberry Darts

Anyone have these?

Care to give me a mini care sheet?

Id like to start building an enclosure for them - so that when the opportunity arises, I can be ready to acquire some.

Thanks

Strawberry darts are just a common generic name for Oophaga pumilio.

"Strawberry Darts" is a generic term typically given to red or orange color pumilio with no site data from online and/or pet store sellers who have no idea what locale or import they have. Stay away from anything labeled "Strawberry Dart" if you want to work with pumilio that you can track lineage by way of real locale data or at the very least import year/import company. Otherwise, you end up with frogs that could possibly be untreated, sick WC with no import info and you will definitely have a hard time finding anyone willing to trade or buy offspring from you if you happen to breed them successfully. I would suggest doing a little more research on pumilio and maybe even looking into some of the other non obligate smaller thumbnail species before tackling pums. Just my opinion from experience with my collection.

Here is the basic care sheet for O. pumilio.

There is another thread on here that has a bunch of great info on pumilio but I cannot find it.

I obviously know the scientific name - or I would have posted this somewhere else.

And I've already read general pum care sheet. Just wondering specifics at this time.

If you want to steer me in a certain direction with thumbs I might be interested in that as well.

Thanks

Thumbnails can be easy if you have the patience and time required. You need a constant supply of food and water and they will do great for you. They are very small though, and are very good at escaping and very hard to catch. Thumbnails will also need fresh supplements at every feeding, feedings should be every other day. Let me know if I missed anything.

Im going to continue doing research, but Ive decided to stray away. I think I want something that I can do in a smaller viv.

Thanks for all the input everyone.

Tips,
Broms and film canister for laying,
I misted every 2 days
I had 2 springtale cultures and 1-2 white isopod cultures dedicated for each pair of pumilios i had and seeded once -2 times a week.

I had a open area with magnolia leaves which made it easier to catch froglets and notice them to remove them and place them in a heavily seeded springtale tank so that they had access to enough food.

If you dont think they're in your tank, 95% of the time they are. Unless you find a body outside or in the tank they are good hiders, goes for thumbs and pums.
Ive stressed myself out way too many times looking for them rather than sit back for a day and observe in the morning to just find them chilling on a brom.

Hope this helps
