Reptile Expo this weekend end (S.A.TX.) and I will be looking to pick up a set of frogs.
Im wondering...
Will Melanogaster be to small for the bigger Darts or will they eat these too just a lot more of them.
Or will I have to start cultureing Hydei Also.
I was thinking of getting a set of Azureus or possibly Tinctorius Cobalts.
I may look out for some Ranitomeya but thought I would ask this of the flys to see what people say.

Thanks to all that help out on this board lots of us would be lost w/o all the help offered here.

melanogaster are fine alone, although more diversity in food items is considered whats best for the animals. this would mean feeding melos, along with bean beetles and isopods, for instance. in short you CAN go without hydei, even with bigger darts.

I am a beginner, but I usually use hydei. Melanogasters work fine, but they are a lot smaller. I use both hydei and melanos, springtails, isopods, hydei larvae, and rice flour beetle larvae for feeding my frogs.

I hear the larger darts take to hydei better
Oh, I am able to feed a lot of Tincs with Gliders, Curlys and Wingless Melanogaster. You just need to culture more flies, which is easily done. I would reccommend starting with Melanogaster and play around with Hydei as well. Hydei need a richer medium. Add more brewers yeast and they'll take off.
