I've been doing months and months of research on several Dendrobates and Oophaga species. I'm just having a hard time whittling down the species to the one I would like to keep and ultimately breed. Galactonotus really peaked my interest but they're quite expensive. I'm leaning toward leucs. Anyways, here is my list:
Oophaga pumilio "boca colubre"
Dendrobates auratus "columbian blue green"
Dendrobates tinctorius azureus
Dendrobates tinctorius "Citronella"
Phyllobates terribilis "orange"
Dendrobates leucomela "fine spot"
Dendrobates leucomela "guyana"
Adelphobates galactonotus "orange"
Any insite would be much appreciated. I have the means to care for any of these species. What would really sway my decision is price of frogs, the more expensive the better. I plan on selling the froglets to fund the upkeep of the other frogs, and possibly get a little extra money for expansion as well.

The price of the frog is dictated in many respects by the difficulty in breeding the type. I wouldn’t approach this with ‘which one will make me the most money’ but ‘which one attracts me to care for it for the next 15-20 years’. Would suggest starting with a beginner-friendly species until you have the experience built up to be able to work with one of the more delicate species.

Leucomelas are a great little frog.

I voted “Fine Spot” as IMO, look a bit better then “Guyana”. That doesn’t mean Guyana is bad however, as there is really no morph or species of darts I dislike. Either one honestly.

See, I'm actually the opposite. The whole point of the poll was to see what was most popular though. I'm considering starting a business breeding and selling dart frogs, but you gotta start somewhere lol.

Fine Spot might be more popular. I don’t have statistics so I’ll be quiet.

I think they're all beautiful. That's why I'm having such a hard time deciding lol. Leucs do seem pretty easy to breed which has definitely been a deciding factor.
If you want something to breed, maybe E. Anthonyi. (Maybe not...











you’d get like 100 tads in a month!)
