Hi, all!

Even though I've been lurking for a few months, I'd like to introduce myself on this, my first post to the board.

I've kept dart frogs for the last year or so, and since they've been thriving, I recently acquired a trio of D. fantasticus. The little guys are absolutely brilliant, but I have a few questions about their care, if you don't mind.

1) Is there anything I need to be particularly careful of when keeping thumbnail species?

2) Despite the information available on the web, I've yet to determine whether or not D. fantasticus are egg feeders. Can someone settle this once and for all?

Thanks very much!

Hey John,
Welcome to the board. The thing that stands out the most about fantasticus is how quick and how far they can jump. Watch it with these guys. Fantasticus are not egg-feeder. I would suggest getting the book Poison Dart Frogs, by Samples and Wattley it is a great book.

Hope this Helps,

I just got 3 also at IAD, amazing little frogs, very bold, and like he said they jump like crazy.

Thanks very much for the replies! Those little guys sure are fruitfly / pinhead vacuums! I see what you mean about their "hoppy" tendancies. Very unlike the azureus.

I'm planning a beautiful viv for them, but right now they're being kept at room temperature (low 70s) in a rubbermaid container. They seem pretty content and I'm absolutely enthralled by the little guys.

I can't wait to see if I have a pair... odds are pretty good.
