If you're referring to true thumbnails, Ranitomeya, I would suggest the website ranitomeya.com. It is run by a forum member, Chris Miller. There are pictures of many species and localities and even some for sale. I got some Ranitomeya lamasi 'Orange' as my first darts and they are tiny! You really can't judge the size until you see them in person.

Pumilio really aren't hard to keep. The thing that makes them tricky is breeding. Search the forum and you'll be able to find lots of information on them, and caresheets.

thanks chris will do
Very good point chris... Pumilio are some of the most forgiving frogs I have ever seen. I have had a few room free in my frog room before as they can take 50% humidity. The trick is getting them to breed and keeping the froglet alive to 6 months...good luck on your quest though and feel free to pm me if you have more questions

Just to clarify, pumilio are not true thumbnails (the Ranitomeya species) and they are in a different genus (Oophaga).
I also have found the adults to be pretty hardy, unless you have same sex aggression which, especially with males, can be deadly. If you want to see different pumilio locales, there is a morph guide at tropical-experience.nl which has pictures of many different varieties.

If you like big bold frogs a lot you should take a look at terribilis. They are freakin tanks. They'll eat anything moving, and their extremely bold. I have mints and oranges. Mints are my favorite (and the largest).
