How are you keeping ?
I see you`ve not been updating your frog room thread for a while, everything running along nicely ?

Hey Mike,

We're good but very busy. Nothing much has changed except that I'm not breeding the frogs right now.

True, but they can be used as an example.

A person with say 3 dogs in their home that tries to introduce a new one doesn't always work.

Re: Dart Frogs 'Best kept in pairs only" advice ?

Even by posting "the sweet spot" manner it won't deter newbs from trying it. The overriding point that I have to make, is that experimentation and forging ahead is ok and fine with goods and such, but these are live animals. Phil, you know me and in no way shape or form was any frog under ...

Re: Dart Frogs 'Best kept in pairs only" advice ?

With that being said, are we just supposed to keep things to ourselves if we're having success with something "outside of the norm?"

Where to do exchange ideas if we're in fear of a newb getting ahold of said information?

Is it time for a 3+ year area? :wink:

Re: Dart Frogs 'Best kept in pairs only" advice ?

Glenn, If someone is new and tincs are 1st or even 2nd frogs, then no...I would absolutely tell them to stick to a pair. I agree with you on this, Phil. But, what I see is blanket statements that have been said for years. And, it's just not true. I also see blanket statements made about a lot of ot...

Re: Dart Frogs 'Best kept in pairs only" advice ?

Seeing those females fighting was really disturbing . Someone who is interested in Tincs should buy three or four froglets or juveniles and raise them up together and let them pair off and remove the others from the pair and either keep them or sell them. YOU may find it really disturbing. Others m...

I've never put cultures in the dark, but the pupa do seem to congregate towards the light.

Re: Dart Frogs 'Best kept in pairs only" advice ?

The scary part is that while dart frogs are not as immediately aggressive as those fish, they ARE aggressive and absolutely capable of creating death by stress. Agreed, but a somewhat experienced keeper would notice a frog(s) doing poorly. It's not that difficult to notice...But, I've seen many fro...

Re: "Hybridizing”,Cross-breeding and Mixing Dart Frogs

If anything "due diligence" will be heightened for the more serious keeper and that can never be a bad thing IMO. Like anything, there's serious hobbyists who scour for information on every level. Then there's the more casual keepers. Nothing wrong with that. I'd never been on a forum befo...

Re: Mites passing thru a fabricoted lid??

How can they get out of a neighbouring culture if they can get through the fabric or gap in the lid? :P Nope, I pull a culture from the tray and dump over a funnel. Table is cleaned after every feeding. Take an unopened FF culture and put it on a white surface. It will have a ring of mites around it...

Re: Mites passing thru a fabricoted lid??

I think they can do both. My tray covered in DE and dead mites would suggest then can.
