Based on your other thread, my suggestion would be to slow down a little bit. I know dart frogs can be very exciting and fun, but please, for the love of your frogs, do some research first.

Use the search tab on this website and read all you can, about any topic you want, and even some you think you don't need to know yet.

Not trying to be a jerk here, but it sounds like you are pretty inexperienced and I am trying to help.

And set some ground rules for your friends. The next time he touches your tanks "just for fun" and hurts your frogs, tell him you will break HIS leg.

You and your frogs will have a much rewarding experience, I promise.

Re: dart frogs nocturnal?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"hey if your still hear my friend just opened my tank then closed it as a joke after i told him not to and when he close it my frogs arm got jammed in it i just walked in and got her out of their she is still alive but her arm is dangling around and she is un able to move will it heal what should i do"

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hey dude. Is this you from earlier today? Why when I try to help, you say you are not getting darts until Christmas and have plenty of time to research, when just a few hours ago you wrote in your own thread about your friend breaking your frogs leg?

What's the story? Trying to pull our leg here? People will stop trying to help you if you aren't telling the truth. We certainly have had enough of that around here.

Where are you located in Canada? Shoot me a PM if you like. Hopefully, I know someone close to you.

Getting hooked up with a local is the way to go. The hobby is more expensive here and shipping costs are crazy.

BTW You're not going to want to put a dart frog in a tank that had a tree frog in it...

You really need to keep a close eye on your animals and make sure nothing happens. Closely inspect them atleast twice a day and make sure nothing can happen to them. How big is the enclosure? I think your other post saying your frog got it's leg stuck in the lid tells me it might be wayyyy to small or not the right conditions, causing your frog to try and get out.

Just my thoughts and good luck

Your best bet would be UE,how big is your tank? Based on your last thread you should do MUCH more research until you get your first leuc,what are the parameters of your tank for example,what kind of background,plants,temp,humidity,and do you have leaf litter?

Frogfreak,

Why would you not want to put a dart in a tank that used to have tree frogs?

I have not read that anywhere before.

Mainly pathogens and other bacteria/parasitic issues. You can use it though if you give it a bleach bath though.

There is no such thing as a practice frog! They are living breathing animals that feel happy, sad, scared, stressed, and pain.
Suggestion: buy a plant, keep it alive & healthy for one year(with no one ripping off leaves) then consider a live animal for a pet.

You need to set up a tank, and let it establish before you think about any darts. If you are getting Darts by x-mas you should be starting NOW. I don't know if you know how to build, thats why I suggest starting asap. There are people here that can build off the rip, and others that need more time. Also if your doing a BG you need the silicone/GS smell gone before adding your frogs. You always can set up a temp tank if your not ready to build a viv.
