    Hi Planning out my second viv at the moment, for 3 Mint Terribilis, and wanted to include a water feature. Now, I've heard that water features tend to mold pretty easily from a few people, but wanted to ask here specifically since it's a board for darts. I was planning on a pretty small section...

    Hi everyone, I have two auratus set up in a temp quarantine bin with a shallow water bowl. The water level is probably only a cm high and I have noticed them sitting in it with no problems. Today I opened the lid to feed them and one sitting on the water bowl got spooked and jumped in and...

    Theres Something that has come to my attention regarding ro water and dart frog keeping, being someone who keeps freshwater planted Aquariums when we use Ro water we remineralise it as it’s far to pure and nothing really would live or grow in this pure water, now having read a few posts it seems...

    Hello, this is my second time trying to post this introduction. I have 4 Azureus Dart frogs and a corn snake. I did have 5 Azureus but due to the slum I have been living in not caring if their tenants have proper working air conditioners the viv got too hot a couple weeks back and one of my...

    My name is LadyBug. I keep Azureus Dart frogs and have a pet corn snake. I did have 5 frogs the youngest of which are near to 4 years old. Sadly the vivarium recently got too hot and one of my frogs met his sad end. I am still grieving for that. I have to blame my landlords in my current...

    I am new to this site and have had 2 Dendrobates tinctorius for about a year. They seem happy and healthy, but they keep going in the water for a day or so at a time. The tank is in the 70's and I mist it every day. From what I have read, it is not normal for dart frogs to spend much time in the...

    I have noticed that quite a few setups have holes drilled into the glass of their viviariums so they can drain them. Is this necessary? Is water buildup an issue usually? Also would an aquarium heater in the drainage layer help reduce this from happening? I assume it would speed up evaporation...
  10. Plants
    I just finished a terrarium with the customized background. I am waiting for the plants that I got online. My question is very simple. I have been reading about the water that I should use to water the plants. Some people recommend distilled water some others recommend against it. But all of...

    I recently bought my first dart frog setup, a 30 gallon with 2 auzureus. Now I am thinking of setting up a second tank. Ive heard that darts can drown if they have deeper water, is this true? My first 30 has maybe 1 cm of water at the deepest, but im thinking of doing a pool with tetras or...
  12. Beginner Discussion
    So I did a few searches to try to find answers already. I found a lot of threads about how to get water that doesn't have contaminants or how to remove contaminants, but nothing on exactly what contaminants these frogs are sensitive to or what water conditions they prefer. I have lots of fish...

  14. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    I've done a bunch of reading about eggs and tads, but I'm still confused about a couple of things. 1. The Egg Care Sheet on this forum has a link to a discussion about water temperature, but I get a "not found" when I go there. This is my major concern. Even though I live in SoCal, it's often...

    Hey everyone, I have a couple of questions to the people without misting systems or to the people that misted by hand before they had a misting system. I am building a 20 gallon tank and I am looking to get 3 or 4 epipedobates Anthonyi, and I want to know how many times a week/day you guys...

    Hi all, Recently it feels as though I am living in England because of all of the rain in New England. During this stretch of whether the question if anyone uses rain water for their vivs or if it would be alright to catch rain water from a gutter drain and use it in a viv? Thanks for any...

    Good day! I am a current member of another forum that appears to be less active than this. I am currently a 2nd year student (major: Environmental Studies), and have been active in this hobby since I was very young. As a new member, I intend to offer my thought process to the community, not...
  18. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    I am wondering how those of you who perform water changes go about it. Do you setup another container and then nudge the tadpole into it or do you try to replace the water inplace? Please let me know your water change process. Thanks, Nathan

    Hey Everyone, I recently did a water change in my tank with a false bottom because the water looked rather brown. When I pumped the water out it smelled horrible. I was hoping the eheim filter would keep the water clean but maybe not. Any idea why the water smelled so bad? Do I need to add...
