    Hello everyone, My name is Matt and I love amphibians; I keep a couple species of salamanders. About 6 weeks ago I saw someone selling an adult azureus dart frog on craigslist with the enclosure included for $60 and jumped on it as I always wanted a frog, especially dart frogs. I go to pick up...

    These R. imitator “Tarapoto” tadpoles are my first, & I’m not really able to judge how old / how much longer before they leave the water. They hatched around 3/1. My first dart frogs, their first tadpoles. We’re new parents! Lol. What do you all think? What should I expect? Thank you:)

    Hi everyone! I’m new to the hobby and have been a lurker here for about a year. This is my first post. I just finished my first background this weekend. I’ve planned on making a proper introduction post with vivarium pics once done, but I’ve come across a timeline or order-of-operations question...

    Hello! Well, I am sure glad I found this amazing resource of a website! Such amazing people and info! Alright then - A little about me. I have been caring for a variety of reptiles for about 15 years now. I recently, a year ago, got into amphibians - specifically dart frogs! I've become...

    I have 4 tadpoles already in jars, all about one to two weeks old. I left 2 tadpoles in the viv with the parents that are also around 2 weeks old. I’m thinking about taking the tadpoles out, but will that be detrimental to the doting parents & their tads? The bromeliads are small & don’t hold...

    Hi all, I've had my small group of imitators for almost 3 months now, and two have paired up. The other is a female, and I will be separating her soon. They have started breeding and laying eggs like crazy, and I'm not sure how many tadpoles the parents have already deposited. It's safe to say...

    Hi all, I found my first Ranitomeya imitator Tarapoto eggs in a film canister, just to see that my female was carrying around a tadpole a few days later. I thought I had more time, but turns out they had their first successful clutch in one of the more hidden film canisters! So, this morning...

    I’m 24 & live in Duluth, Minnesota. I have a really strong passion for pets, and recently got into the dart frog hobby with 3 Ranitomeya Imitator Tarapotos! Q: I keep them in a 12x12x18 exo terra (small I know) & now believe I have two females and a very musical male. Should I separate the...

    Howdy everyone I’m really interested in beginning my journey with dart frogs. I wanted some advice on where to get started. I recently was given the opportunity to purchase a group of three dendrobates Luecomelas which come with a full setup for $250 dollars. Is this a good deal?/ is this a good...

    I recently got an ExoTerra 36x18x36 for cheap and want to house some Vietnamese Mossy Frogs in it. I have found some care guides on the internet and on this forum (also the russian PDF), but the one thing I haven't seen mentioned is the group size. So my question is how many frogs can be...

    Hi All, I am new to the hobby and decided to build a vivarium using great stuff and a mix of the drylock method as well as the silicone and peat moss method. I am still waiting on a pump for the waterfall on the left and need to add moss, abg, etc. I keep thinking I’m gonna mess it up. Any...

    I'm new to amphibians as the selection here is limited and I find pets that sleep all day very dull. It was very pleasant when there was a good availability of dart frogs at one of the pet stores. I decided to go with D. Leucomelas and set up a 31"×12"×16" aquarium. As LECA balls were...

    My 3 froglets most of the time seem content to hide under all the leaf litter in my tank. As I don't see them a lot of the time I worry about them and occasionally find myself digging through the leavings to check on them all. They seem to be doing well though one of them seems very chubby even...

    So I recently got into the hobby and ended up buying a bio-active tank kit from Josh’s Frogs. This is what it looked like. I had it set up for about a week and a half and then purchased the frogs. I have had them for two days and I already know the personalities of them. This one is Adolin...

    Hi all, So I’m planning on getting some thumbnails for a 75gallon aquarium I converted with a custom lid. I’m wondering, what is the smallest hole one of these guys could escape through? I have a slit running along one edge of a custom lid that’s about an 1/8” opening, I’m thinking I need to...
  16. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    Hi all, I am BRAND NEW to this hobby. I don’t even have frogs yet. I thoroughly enjoyed creating my first vivarium, and am already planning more. Before I purchase ANY frogs, I was wondering what everyone’s thoughts on breeding are. Is it fun, or stressful? Easy to sell froglets, or do you...

    Hello everyone, I'm new to this world and I've built a nice terarrium 5 days ago ; except that all the leaves are turning brown and floppy leading to the death of the plants. I suspect an overwatering as I tried to achieve 80-90% humidity and the soil is very humid, but I'm not sure. Here are...

    I’ve recently gotten into the terrarium scene, and would love to be able to make some friends in person through it. Most forums I’ve found for the scene typically exist on a more international basis and don’t lead to many real world friendships. I wanted to inquire where in this forum I should...

    I'm getting my first WTFs from Josh's Frogs in a couple of weeks. I'm ordering 3 and can't wait! I do have some concerns over whether or not they need to be quarantined before being introduced to their enclosure. I'm setting the tank up soon (18 x 18 x 24) so that I can make sure the conditions...

    Hello everyone! I am in the process of setting up my first viv and I am planning on keeping Phyllobates vittatus once it has had time to establish. I am using a 20 long for this build, and I am currently in the final steps of making sure everything is where I want it. I purchased a piece of...
