From what I read, their care is similar to darts. But they're a bit easier, more flexible with temp. I'd like to start with these guys (In a second tank I've made) before getting darts.

Does anybody here breed them?

I've kept fire-bellied toads. They liked a swimming area and a land area. I haven't had any bumble bee toads. I know Josh's frogs raises them and they love giving advice. They are regularly on here so maybe ask them. Good luck!

Used to have them, they are pretty easy to care for; you can keep 4 or 5 in a 10 gal., keep them in the low to mid 70's (they can survive in higher temperatures, but the low to mid 70's are best), keep the humidity around 50%, do not allow it to get too high, and feed them dusted appropriate sized crickets and fruit flies. Also make sure they always have access to a water bowl.

Hope this helps,
Vladimir.

Josh's frogs is generally considered the authority on these guys. They don't move much so a 10 gal for a trio would work. They need a shallow water dish and like temperatures on the cooler side (65-75ish). Besides that, pretty much the same as darts. Live plants, leaf litter, ff's and crickets and bean beetles and you're set!

Yep, sounds right!

Anybody here happen to breed them? I read they're super easy to breed, and I always prefer getting my critters from hobbyists :)

I have Melanophryniscus klappenbach, the "other species" neonating right now. They are a bit larger and even stronger, but lack the red markings on their bellies. I don't want to send them off till they are at least four months old because in the past this genus sometimes has difficulty in reaching maturity. I would not feel comfortable till they are at least at that age...
