I wanted to share my new obsession! I've wanted dart frogs since I was a little kid. Two weeks ago, I got my first frogs, and I am currently building a second vivarium for a pair of thumbnail darts.

The first is a 24x18x18 housing 3 juvenile fine spot D. leucomelas. The plant list is quite extensive, but it will change once the other viv is planted, plants come later today! This picture is a couple weeks old, two of the bromeliads have reddened up nicely.
In no particular order:
Columnea gloriosa 'Golfish Plant' originally put it to fill space/flowers, unsure now if it will stay
Alagaonema 'Siam Aurora'
Calathea lancivolia 'Rattlesnake Plant'
Spathiphyllum 'petite'
Syngonium podophyllum 'Creamsicle'
Peperomia caperata 'Green'
Pellionia pulchra 'Watermelon'
Ficus pumila variegata 'creeping fig'
Pilea depressa 'Tiny Tears'
Nephrolepsis exaltata 'Emerald Vase Fern'
Nephrolepsis cordifolia 'Lemon Button Fern'
Davallia thrichomanoides 'Black Rabbit's Foot Fern'
Episcia 'Silver Skies'
Monocostus uniflorus 'Lemon Ginger'
Macodes petola 'Jewel Orchid'
Marcgravia sintenisii 'Rainbow Marcgravia'
Marcgravia rectiflora
5 bromeliads

The trio out and about this morning.

Here's the process of building the 18x18x18 thumbnail vivarium:



If anyone is interested I can continue to update.

The initial planting is done! I have some more vines and a couple jewel orchids coming when I pick up the frogs next month. This 18x18x18 will house a pair of Ranitomeya imitator 'green'. There's a lot to grow in, but I'm happy!

And a picture of the leuc viv from this morning

Got my frogs today! Ranitomeya imitator 'green'. I also got some cuttings of jewel orchid and marcgravia to add.

Here is the probable female hopping about, eating springtails.

The male went into hiding under a leaf and then started calling within an hour! They are both exploring the vivarium and the male is calling more. I got a good shot of him after he hopped out of his cup to their new home. These pictures are unedited, the colors really pop under the lighting!

I have a hunch I won't be certain if she is really a 'her' until I see tadpole feeding or I see babies hopping around!
