  1. Beginner Discussion
    Hey! I have been reading everything I can find for a week and unlikely to stop any time soon, but there's been a few topics I haven't seen a consensus or enough detail on, so figured I'd ask some questions. (also, a lot of what I've been reading is 10+ years old.... I'm sure the knowledge has...

    I have 2 dendrobates auratus, and i have heard them very loudly early in the morning and in early evening. I didn't think they made much noise? It's loud enough to hear over my tv and to wake me up, just curious for more information if anyone can help :)

    Hi you guys! Here for help, finally got a pair of Albino Auratus and just need some help from time to time, so far this site has helped me find out the little guys were shedding and not choking, and some good tips for the decor of the tank. My burning question is why do my frogs like to sit on...

    Hey! I am jumping into Bioactive VIvariums & Dart frogs. I have been slowly aquiring my goods for the tank, and plan to cycle my vivarium for around a month before I pull in my frogs. I hope to have a pack of 3-4 Turquoise & Bronze auratus in a 29 gallon (30lx12wx18h) and I have some...

    Just a few minutes ago, I decided to peek in on my Green and White group before their light went out for the night, and to my delight, I spotted a single egg on one of the bromeliads in there. I think they've just been starting to lay, and have deposited some in high traffic areas, but it looks...

    Hello, It has been my dream since I was 6 years old to own poisonous dart frogs. After an unexpected breakup over Christmas, I have decided to finally fulfill my dream as well and do something productive to help with my depression. Today I bought my very first set of dart frogs and I was over...

    Hi I am new to owning a dart frog. Finding it fascinating so far. Never thought I would be one to be cultivating bugs. Now I have cultures & containers of different critters creepy crawling for food and clean up. I have yet to brave feeding the flour beetle larva to my auratus. Still looking...
  10. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    I have what appears to be one singular cream colored egg in my vivarium. Are they that color? I can't figure out what it is. My Anthonyi eggs are very obviously eggs. My microspots are approx. 8 months old, which I thought was too young for breeding - however, I did see a couple that appeared...

    I'm starting out, and I got two D. Auratus. They are about .75 inches. I am still prepping their vivarium and I have them in a 7 by 13 by 6 inch box. No worries about temperature, humidity, or food, but is the box ok to keep them in for a week or 2? If not, I have a 5.5 gallon that is 8 by...
  12. Beginner Discussion
    I am making my first vivarium, It will be a 16 by 16 by 16, and all custom. I can't really come up with the money to buy 3 adult frogs at once, so I was thinking that I could get a juvenile and raise it up, then get the last two frogs as adults. Is this OK? It will be a maximum of 1 year...
  13. Beginner Discussion
    I've been shopping around for a good light for the tank (20H maybe 40B) I am planning to build this summer for some Auratus. I just came across this light after doing some research on here and it seems to fit the proper criteria for proper plant growth and coloration. Just wanted to get a...
  14. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    At the moment I'm very heavy on females with my D. auratus El Copes. I know I could get rid of some of my females but I like having a well stocked display tank so what I've been thinking is that I'll setup a smaller tank just for breeding where I'll have a male and a female and periodically...
  15. Dendrobates
    I bought some Dart frogs a few years back called "Nicargauan" auratus. Ive even been able to get them to produce offspring for me. However im confused of how to tell if these are true Nicaraguan auratus, ive seen other morphs that look identical. Id love to get feedback from veteran froggers out...

    Hello, Dendro community! I have built up a tank with the theme of one of my favorite movies...Jurassic Park! After all, they did use froggy DNA to fill the gaps in the dino DNA! Lol. Hope you all enjoy this as much as I do. :) Questions and comments are welcome! Here are the build photos...
  17. Member's Frogs & Vivariums
    I've had this viv setup for about 9 months now, I'm happy with how it's come out (execpt for the wandering jew, I go through phases where I love it but most of the time I hate it now). Frogs seem happy and healthy and I caught two courting this morning.The pictures are a few months old so I'll...

  19. Identification Forum
    I am rather new to the world of dart frogs and as such I have only recently acquired my new frogs. I have the hardest time identifying the different black and green Auratus and because of this difficulty I believe that I have made a mistake. Clearly, I have two very different shades of green...
  20. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    So just a quick stupid question about my 10 month old Auratus' behavior. Will males and females pair up? There are two frogs who are ALWAYS in the same hiding spots as each other. Whenever I do cage maintenance, I always find them together. The other one seems to hang out all lonesome. Do...
