  1. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    Those who have bred their dart frogs, what percentage of tadpoles make it to adult frogs? I’m curious what people have experienced so I don’t get my hopes up, as I am a very soft gal & first time dart frog owner / tadpole-raiser. Is there a benchmark where they have a solid chance at growing...

    I am quite excited. I had my auratus for 7 months now and they are around 13 months old. Over the last few weeks I sometimes heard someone in the tank calling, but only ever for a short time. This morning I catched a glimpse of 2 off my frogs sitting on a branch with another one close behind...

We have five species. we also have the last Tinc(powder blue) left here,as far as I understand this frog is a couple years old now.My...
  4. Toads
    Hello. I live in Florida and was wondering if there were any breeders near the Stuart/Port St Lucie (southeast fl) area breeding oriental fire-bellied toads or safe online vendors that have them in stock. Yellow-bellied toads are available online, but I'm a fan of the green/red coloration of the...
  5. 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...
  6. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    I am a huge fan of the painted mantellas (baroni is the best!). Before I came to U.S on Aug, I have a 8 painted mantellas in China. I founded two clutches of eggs (in little pots they used to hide under the leaflet) in the 2019 and 2020 summer when I raised the temperature and gave them huge...

    I've seen it mentioned several times on this board that there are boom and bust cycles in frog popularity leading to certain morphs nearly disappearing from the hobby, with some lines only being kept going by a few dedicated keepers. What are some rare, once-common or underappreciated morphs...
  8. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    My female bakhuis is following my male bakhuis around the vivarium. She keeps touching his legs and will very briefly mount him and then move over to his other side to touch him more. He doesn't seem at all bothered by her behavior. I wondered if this is signifying that she wants to breed?
  9. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    I haven't been able to find much information about this. I have heard in multiple places that knowing the lineage of your frogs is important, however, I don't understand how to find out what different lines are in this country (USA). Is there a name for the different lines? I also wanted to...

    I recently bought 2 bumblebee dart frogs, I’m not sure the age or sex of them but one of them has being calling very frequently and the other seems to getting bigger in the belly I was scared it was bloated and may be sick but it’s readily eating and is very active in the terrarium. This is my...
  11. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    I posted on here a couple months ago about a pair of R variabilis 'southern' that I have now had for a little over a year. One of them has called every single day since we got them and the other frog (which I assume is female) seems quite responsive to this calling. I often see them spend hours...

    Will tincs still breed readily with the presence of a mourning gecko?

    Hi all, I have a trio of "El Cope" Auratus that are around 2 years old, and I've had them since they were about 2 months OOW. When I first got them and for the first year or so, they were fairly bold. There would always be at least 2 out and about, and they climbed all over the enclosure. They...

    Hi I recently saw a frog tank online that mixed Dendrobates azureus with Adelphobates galactonotus. They was claiming that they wouldn’t hybridise as they are from a different genus. Is this correct? Thanks
  15. Beginner Discussion
    Hi Everyone, I'm curious how most people acquire small groups of dart frogs and prevent incest. I'm looking into getting about 4 R. Imitators, but it seems that if I get them all from a sole source they're probably going to be siblings and then they shouldn't be together and breeding in the...

    Hello all! I am a newbie to posting on the 'board, though a long time follower of this wealth of information. First post! So if this is in the wrong category or needs collapsed, pardon the faux pas. I acquired a pair of dendrobates auratus from my local pet store, and I’m curious what people...
  17. Food & Feeding
    Hello all, Nick here and I was wondering about isopods. I recently procured a couple groups of isopods and was wondering how long it will take for my cultures to grow. I have about 16 P. Laevis, 5 A. Maculatum, and 6 P. Scaber "calico". they are all in different tubs naturally. Thanks!

    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...

    Hi, Got 0.0.4 Benedicta 3 days ago, and was told they are around 8 months old. Trying to sex them, but have not heard any calls yet. I've tried a couple of times to play the call and wait for around 15 minutes in silence after, but the only results so far have been one of the frogs coming...
