PostSubject: FIRST FROG POST! My Dart Frog setups!   Sun Jan 15, 2012 12:27 am

Here are some shots of my dart frog tanks. I currently have 12 frogs. A group of 6 Dendrobates leucomelas (yellow and black). 2 Dendro. azureus (blue and black). 2 Oophaga pumilio (blue jeans haha) and 2 Golden mantellas. All these frogs are not for handling although they are not poisonous. In nature these frogs eat ants that have eaten alkaloid plants. As this toxin goes up the food chain it intensifies, and the frogs have adapted the ability to store and secrete this built up toxin. In captivity, no ants = no poison. I feed mine fruit fly cultures that I culture.

I have yet to write a detailed writeup on the vivarium building as it would take a long time. But I would be happy to answer any questions anyone would have. I use a false bottom setup and that can be researched fairly easily.

First up is the 54 gallon corner tank with my 6 leucomelas that I have had for like 5 years (these are long lived frogs with record being 21 years!)

i have always been afraid to ask as the price of the frogs as they look like little jewels and i always presumed they were also as hard to aquire.i am hoping you are going to tell me otherwise as when i see your sweet setups i know deep down i really need one.a little nano rainforest in my room. Laughing but really man you certainly do things nice.i have yet to see the other frogs dwellings but i can only presume they are just as nice....do you do any frog setups for any buisness?
