The biggest thing I've read with mantella --especially WC-- is they are particularly temperature sensitive. You want temperatures around 60F-70F.

If yon are a beginner, stick to some captive born animals. If you already are setup for imitators, get those.

Wild collected mantella will have parasites, infections, stress, dehydration, etc... You need to be setup with the supplies, knowledge, and experience (and a good veterinarian) to make sure the animals you buy don't perish.

Yes you can buy wild collected and get lucky, but you run a high risk of loosing the animals, it a gamble. No as a beginner, spending money on wild collected animals and having them die on you may be a big discouragement.

WC mantellas aren't that hard to look after. I've only lost ONE WC mantella ebenaui shortly after acquiring them from a dealer after all these years. The other three ebenaui I've had for ten years.

However, definitely buy CB mantellas before WC.

Temperature requirements for mantellas are pretty similar to what we feel comfortable keeping darts at, but mantellas need a cool, dry period unlike most dendrobatid frogs.
