How do I get these guys to start breeding like rabbits? What time of day do they breed? Or Call?

I am not 100% experienced on this... so others will chime in but.. look for calling... how old are they?

Once they are showing signs (calling, back rubbing, etc) you can try a dry spell for a few days.. then mist heavy for a few to try to "jump start" the breeding.

Mist twice a day and feed more......and if they are old enough, and a true pair, they should start breeding eventually. If you use the search function you can read through lots of threads on this topic and find lots of info.....
Looks like you're about to be over your head in tadpoles. Take this time before they start spitting out clutches to read as much as possible about tad and froglet rearing. Just browsing through articles and thoroughly reading care sheets really makes a difference.
Thank you guys!!! They are approximately 14 months old...when will I notice this behavior ? Night, Day?

Should I play Al Green .... Coldplay....Barry White...Barry Manilow....Slipknot ? Mood lights?

Chicago Greatest Hits, or Journey Greatest Hits, no mood lights, just a lava lamp should do it.;)

And Poison dart frogs are diurnal, so they are active during the day.....this includes breeding behavior, so you should notice it during the daytime
Right now I'm misting every 3rd day and feeding every 2-3rd then I will switch in a week to double daily feedings and double daily mistings....how often should I powder coat the flies and with what supplements?
Have you tried a candle light dinner.
I have a pair of cv imitators that has begun to lay clutches. I feed them once a day and dust the flies four times a week. I spaces the dustings out evenly and use a muti vitamin twice and calcium twice. I also have a zoomed fogger that I've put on a timer. It starts at 6am and runs for 15 min and repeats every three hours until 9pm. Now I'm not saying these things are all right because I'm fairly new to the hobby but it works for my imitators. Hope this was helpful and goodluck.
Thank you brod

JimO I even put videos of frogs "getting busy" on my iPhone and held it up to the glass
why not try and play calls on your phone or computer
Try showing them this:



Seriously, though, have you had any thunderstorms in the area? I don't know if it's the barometric pressure, thunder, or some other sixth sense, but regardless of the viv conditions, the seasonal breeders seem to start when the local rains start. My auratus pair started a month later than last spring once the drought broke a couple of weeks ago.
God that was awesome !!!
