    My Poison Dart Frogs

    Here are some of my Poison Dart Frogs.
    I've only had frogs for a year, but they are great pets and not alot of work.
    Plus you get to plant a terrarium. I use LEDs to light them all.
    The bromeliads love LEDs brightness and they put out so much less heat than other lights.

    Great pics! Thanks for sharing. What specific LED lamps have you found to work well for you?
    All the best,

    Awesome! I've always wanted to keep some Dendrobates, I think it would be fun setting up a vivarium for them. Just afraid my Nepenthes would eat them.

    Umm, REALLY??
    I have a few Helis, but never thought of putting them in with the frogs.
    Wonder how they would do!?!
    I think I would be worried about the frogs jumping on them and hurting the plant?

    Well according to Peter D Amato he often finds frogs hiding in the pitchers of his helis unharmed. The theory is that there is a symbiotic relationship between the two, the frog will hide under the nectar spoon and catch the insects, and in turn poop into the pitcher, giving the plant nutrients.

    As for damaging the plant I think the frogs would be to small. The only issue is the poop getting into the heli's soil.
