I think the setup has a lot to do with blue jeans reproduction. Put them in a large viv with a good misting system, hight quality water, and lots of tad rearing choices and they do fine.Dancing frogs said:That would be great, I've wanted a pair of blue jeans pumilio since I got into darts. From what I've heard, they breed pretty readily, but are horrible at taking care of their young. This is probably why they are so rare (captive-bred). There has been limited success with trying to feed the tads other food...other dentrobate eggs have even been tried.

I think an artificial diet is a mixed bag. I use to think it would be great but now I think it would be of limited value. It would be great for quickly getting new morphs established in the hobby but I wouldn't want to see artificial diets used routinely to rear tads other than during the establishment phase because we could end up losing the complex parental care behavior of this wonderful group of frogs. It's nice to have one group of frogs that only reproduce when we set things up right to let them do things their own way.
