Don't mix them and cross breeding is like a swear word in Dartfrog circles!

she loves the animals but all my tanks are in the bedroom lol, i used to have a few tree frogs and anoles and things but about 2years ago i had to get rid :( bugged me ever since.. so i started back up about 6 months ago. i normally keep marine and have done for many years doing imports and things but i gave it up when i got my tincs .. marine takes hold of you life worse than phibs if that's possible, an i used to work in a marine shop for 5 years needed a well deserved break .

there here :D i think the blue/black are both fems and the other is a possible pair but can never be sure :) they look amazing :)
couple of quick questions will these lay eggs the same as tincs (hut and dish) or in broms?

Both, but a hut is the usual way to go.

I tend to put huts with petri dishes and film pots in with new frogs, that way they can decide themselves which they prefer as different frogs have different preferences, even within a morph. ;)

Brynn our 2 auratus groups both use cans out of preference cut a white film can in half and pop it inside a black one,this little drawer which sits in the bottom will make removing eggs very simple and you can then incubate and hatch as you wish.It is for sure not the only way by any means,just one that works well for us
