so sorry to hear that hun new darts can be really delicate. id just tripple check your temp/humidity and that you have plenty of hides? darts are very susceptible to even small fluctuations in temp or humidity.

although it may well just be damn bad luck!! be sure to watch your others closely incase its a disease hun.

so sorry for your loss

These aren't Darts these are a species of African Microhylid.

You've only had them a few days and even tho you bought them at a "breeders meeting" I can virtually guarentee you they would of been WC's, this is why you have quarentine and observation periods.
Was there any visual sign as to why the frog died (sores, lesions etc.)?
Keep monitoring the rest of the group and get some food into them (they prefer small food items such as 1st instar crickets & hydei/funebris fruitflies) but try not to disturb them too much so they can settle in.

Hay m8 no nothing on the frog at all it was just out flat checked the frog for any marks but nothing at all. There was no problem with any of the frogs to look at all walking around and stuff same as all ways.

The only thing I can say is that the one that is dead was one of the two as in thay paired up

If I were You, I'd seperate them all. You'll have to spend money on more heat mats etc, but it's your choice. More heat mats or lose the frogs.

It sounds like a disease is being passed round them and the only way to stop it is to seperate them before they ALL catch it!! Are you not aware of quarantining your froggies before you put them all together? The whole process is designed to avoid accidents like this.

Also, are you powdering the crickets with calcium? I can't stress how important this is!

I'm sorry for your loss, I hope you get it sorted as they're truely stunning frogs!!

I do have a number of mats so that would not be a problem

I know your ment to quarantin new frogs from the old ones if there going in the same tank. But I cant say I know how long for. I did not think I would have to quarantin the frogs from each othere as thay came in a in a group of 6 anyway. So Maybe they all have it all ready
