    I recently have been looking into dart frogs and was wondering if anybody could help me. I know several people on this forum raise them and have some knowledge in this area.

    I need to know.

    1) What it takes to get started in this hobby

    2) Startup and running costs

    3) How easy is this hobby?

    4) What's the best way to get froglets?

    5) Any informative websites that I should visit?

    6) I know there are some dart frog forums out there. Any good ones?

    7) Any other information you can give a 'newbie'.

    Thanks!

    1. If you grow CP (succesfully) then you already have what it takes.

    2. At least $100 total (bare minimum).

    3. Moderately Difficult (7 out of 10)

    4. Froglets aren't the best starter frogs. They can be very picky eaters. Sub-adults or Adults are best.

    7. The hardest thing to learn is how to keep a steady supply of food. Once you've got this down, your set.

    Hi,

    What are the best books on dart frogs and creating a terrarium for them? Is there a good society for them or internet forum?

    Here's what I need to know THE MOST before getting into this too deep. If I have to go on vacation for a week or two, can I leave enough food in the vivarium for the frog? Is there any way I can leave and have them live?

    I don't know. Check your local library.

    Yeah, sure. Just put a fruit fly culture in the tank with them. They can go for more than a month like this.

    Oh, I have a related question (I already have esperience with everything but the frogs themselves). Can they live in a tank WITH my CP's? Or are they going to get themselves eaten? I've got everything I need for them except fruitflies and the froggies themselves. I can get both easy (proticularly fruit flies since I'm a bio major and hang out in the gentics lab).
    There is no item greater in value than life, for without life value would cease to exist.
