Dendrobates tinctorius 'cobalt' calling

Postby Efren » Mon Feb 27, 2012 7:15 pm

Here is a video of my male cobalt calling but the female doesn't seem very interested. What can I do?

Raise the humidity and/or temperature slightly.

Feed more, and be sure to use fresh and varied superfine powdered supplements and a powdered calcium.

Sometimes,certain frogs are not compatible and will not breed. Sometimes even if they bred for a previous owner...when you get them...they stop. You never know what can happen. Very hard to predict anything.

Excellent videos Efren ! Me gusta.

Those are their first eggs ? If so, and due to the smaller number - only three....don't be upset if they turn out to be infertile. That's very common when a pair is first starting out. Following clutches should be a little larger / more eggs on average.

Always keep an eye on your supplements - vitamins and calcium....make sure they are good and fresh.
