    there is no such thing as a froglet i thin k but thee is a thing called a tadpole[/QUOTE] There are things called froglets. Froglets are the process after they metamorphisis from tadpoles. The process is from when they lose their tail, until they mature and reach being an adult. Not all dart frogs are Dentrobytes. There are many other species for dart frogs.

    That price if fairly mid-line, depending on the species and desire for it at any given time. Also, what is usually referred to as a "golden frog" is most often a Mantella, which come from Madagascar. Expensive dendrobates that I've seen generally run in the $145-195 price range. As for hoping to sell them and all that at a discount price, people have already got the jump on it (check www.frognet.org).

    Also, have you done much research at all in keeping dendrobates? Buying fruit flies all the time can get expensive (Ed's Fly Meat can set you up with a monthly supply, but even that gets pricey). I would highly suggest looking in to keeping your own cultures.

    Hi HI HI,
    New member that knows about dart frogs.
    Thats a cool thing to hear =D.
    I LOVE THE FROGGIES!!
    D. Pumilo are kind of "rare" types. There usually waiting list for them
    But things with waiting list does not mean they are most rare.
    I'm on a waiting list for imitators, yet I know a lot of people already have them
    But they are always in high demand.

    What does it matter how rare the frog is? If you want a rare treasure, go buy a diamond. If you don't have the experience to care for the more difficult and rare frogs then you should let the more experienced individuals in the hobby keep and breed them until your skills have advanced. The only reason to get into this hobby is for the beauty of the frogs. You should simply look for a frog that is easy to care for and beautiful. Particularly easy to care for.

    Also please note that all dart frogs are maintenance intensive, far beyond the amount of time we spend on our plants.

    Hey Joe,
    I envied your Patricias before. But I got to say, I have a decent amount now =D. I don't think I'll have any room for tincs, but I have to say your patricias had a bold coloration that I didn't see in a lot =D. These waiting lists for some frogs can be nervewrecking.

    Thanks DK, yes they are nice, I think they are about the most beautiful frog I have seen, in my opinion. The waiting list are a bummer, I wanted some nice green or red pumilios but didn't feel like being on a waiting list so I got the auteranias instead. I find the sharp contrast between the black and green quite striking. Also saved me a lot of money over the pumilios.

    Now I just need to make one more nice display vivarium and I'll be happy.

    Happy fogging.
    joe


    It isn't the price, it isn't the rarity, or the difficulty of care, its all those darn cool colors.

    First we would know how much effort, money you want to put onto the tank. The tank can be very expensive, and depending on which you decided you want, would have an impact on how it looks.

    Typically, the plants that would be in are ferns, tropical moss, Sphagnum moss works well also, bromelaids, orchids, and vines. Then you can use air plants that if you go looking around, Joe, had a neat idea to use suction cups and put the air plants on it.

    Auratus are a good beginning choice =D. You would have to decide if you want a false bottom method or just a pea gravel bottom, or something similar. Just talk to me on yahoo messanger, and I could help you out with your needs.
