    Hey all,

    If I place a Heliamphora in a tank with poison dart frogs will the frogs be ok? Has anyone else done this? Is it even possible for these two beauties to live together? (Dendrobates & H. minor)

    i thought helaimphoras liked it cool, and the frogs liked it warm?


    if not then i want a heliamphora too!! how big to minors get anyway?

    ok, now then. in savage garden it talkes about how frogs are found living in the pitchers unharmed in the wild, and in greenhouses, and some think that since there aren't many bugs where they live, the helaimphora benefits from frog poop since frogs are often found there.

    i dont think it will hurt either. symbiotic relationship i guess. everyone wins.

    very true justlikeapill, i would expect no frog to be harmed. Minors can get up to 6 inches I believe, but rather small. Hope it helps,

    6 inches, 3 inches, either way i have room for one in that case.



    i'm not sure but maybe you could try some smaller nepenthes in there too... i think i remember reading something on ***********.com about hot the frogs are safe with nepenthes too.

    Thanks for all your thoughts on the matter. I think I'll stick with Heliamphoras (H. minor or Heterodoxa x minor, cause they're small) since both they and p.d. frogs are from South America. I believe Nepenthes may be a bigger risk to the frogs, plus I'm not that experienced with CPs so I'm staying away from Nepenthes for a long while.

    Have a good one, L.A. Traphole

    My PDFs do just fine with a ventricosa and a gracilis, I can't imagin a problem unless you have vents or imitators.
