    Dendrobates azureus, my wife has 2 of them

    as far as dart frogs, there is ALOT more work going into keeping their food alive than keeping them going. tincs and azureus are EXTREAMLY hardy frogs if a few basic paramiters are met. im pretty sure anyone who can pay attention to the needs of CP's can keep dart frogs going. i way spend more time fussing over keeping enough fruit fly cultures going than i do worrying about the frogs

    here is the best place to start. do lots of reading before posting any questions as some of the members get grumpy answering the same basic ?'s over and over but its about the best single source of info.

    Dendroboard


    here is another link with basic info
    Saurian Enterprises info page

    dart frogs for the most part are simple to keep. a wet, planted tank with plenty of hiding places, normal room temps, regular feeding and they thrive. as i stated before, for most such as Tincs and azureus the price of the frogs has more to do with the time put in to raising them than actual difficulty or rarity. generally its advised to stay away from thumbnails to start with as they are quite a bit smaller and there for slightly harder to feed(springtails and fruit flies) where most of the tincs and azureus can take small crickets if needed along with the smaller prey. leucs are a great first dart, they do well in groups, are generally slightly cheaper than tincs and are quite bold. auratus are generally cheaper but they tend to be shyer. with Tincs and azureus two females SHOULD NOT be kept together as adults as one will probably be bullied and die from the stress. azureus are generally shy when young and yah dont see them much till they are older and than they becom quite bold. tinc(atleast my 2) are jumpy and dive for cover when startled but are out quite abit and i see them all the time. one of mine is generally found plastered to the front glass of the tank watching for me to come over and feed them.

    thats all the quick, general pointers i can think of off hand, ill answer any questions yah want to think up as best i can

    How much of a problem do you think disease is? Dart people seem a lot more precautious than others about it...quarantine and fecals. Also, coming from fish and newts, I find it a bit odd they require vitamins to survive in captivity but I suppose you get used to that in a while?

    Awww, they're so cute . I want to get started some day raising dart frogs. Its just a little too much money for me though right at the moment. And now I know for sure I have seen you somewhere else before. Also Nflytrap, its not that odd for the vitamin thing. You have to do that for reptiles too, and lizards. They need the calcium and other vitamins so that they can have strong bones, and not get sick. Still is weird though, putting what looks like powdered sugar cover crickets in with geckos.

    depends, i dont use suppliments as much as some but i have a variety of food i give them, fruit flies, springtails, isopods, termites ect. a varied diet helps out alot. termites are excellent for fattening up a skinny frog

    as far as disease, depends. with wild caught its a concern though i didnt treat any of my Mantellas as none appeared sick. with CB im not worried. i only worry about disease if there is an apparent reason for it. quarenteen the frogs for a few weeks to keep a better eye on them. if all looks good i see no reason to medicate and turn them loose in their own lil forrest

    as far as Dendroboard, its a very cool site but i tend to butt heads with individuals as i dont agree with some of their ideas over what actually qualifies as a color morph and what should be kept seperate and every few months i go rounds with someone over it.
