  1. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    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...
  2. 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...
  5. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    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
  6. 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...
  8. 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...
  10. Identification Forum
    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...

    Looking online but can't seem to find anything about care, living arrangments, water feature, humidity, etc. on Glass Frogs, I mean I did find a post from about 9/10 years ago. Please Help!

    Hello all, I am seeking some suggestions for what species may do well in a 36x36x18 exoterra. I currently keep southern Variabilis, Nominal Fantastica, and Phylobates terribilis, among other critters. I already have a 36x36 housing a mixture of reed frogs at the moment, but I want darts in the...
  13. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    I have a 2.1 (or 1.2? whichever is 1 male 2 females) trio of vents, all are over a year old, so they're mature. They are all pretty active, although the male hasn't been calling as much lately. I've been keeping the tank pretty wet, and they certainly spend a lot of time in their bromeliads, but...
  14. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    Hey, I have 4 tinc azureus; 2 male, two female. They are currently living peacefully together. I built another viv. considering separating them into two pairs. Would this make them more likely to breed? would it make sense to move a male and female to the new tank at the same time? Any...
  15. Parts & Construction
    These are some coco huts I made. Bought two coconuts for $3 at the local grocer. Popped holes in the nuts to drain em (Hammer and screwdriver). Then tapped em with a hammer till they split in half. Hour in a 200 oven, scooped the meat out easy and another two hours in the oven to thoroughly...
  16. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    Hello - I've just had my R Variabilis 1.1.1 for about three months, and up until today they were a 1.0.2 set. About three weeks ago the male first started calling (so I knew one male), and then today I found these eggs (hence I know one female) - but I can't tell if the eggs have gone bad...
  17. General Health & Disease Treatment
    I've recently had a lot of success breeding my Phantasmal dart frogs, however after the last clutch laid, 3 days ago, i noticed an egg was still stuck within the female, about 50% of the egg is outside, and has been there for 3 days. Is this a problem, the egg has not come out naturally...

  19. 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...
  20. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    I did a quick search and have difficulty getting good search results... As a beginner (I'm building my first viv, and am not even thinking of getting frogs quite yet, too soon), I have a question about the importance of genetic lines. I hear people say how important it is to trace lines when...
