Recommended Vivarium Size & Setup: A 10 gallon aquarium is suitable for a single dart frog, but Josh's Frogs recommends a 20H or 18x18x18 glass terrarium for 1-3 frogs.
ABG mix or Josh's Frogs Dart Frog BioBedding in conjunction with our other bioactive layers (false bottom, substrate barrier, sphagnum moss and leaf litter) are great substrate options for your dart frog setup! Both of these mixes support microfauna populations, which help break down waste and mold within the tank.

Temperature (°F): All dart frogs can tolerate a temperature range of 65 to 80 degrees, but prefer temperatures in the low to mid 70s. Temperatures over 85° are dangerous.
Measure temps with a digital thermometer.
Humidity: Most poison dart frogs prefer a humidity range of 70–100%, but can tolerate humidity down to 50% for short periods of time if the frogs have access to water. Low humidity levels, especially without access to water, can quickly be fatal.
Measure humidity with a digital hygrometer.
Size: Adult female dart frogs are typically larger, measuring up to 2 inches. Males are a bit smaller, growing up to 1.75 inches at maturity. Smaller species typically do not grow larger than an inch.
All of the dart froglets Josh's Frogs sells are well started juveniles, and measure at least 5/8 inch long.
Age: Dart frogs are capable of living well over 20 years in captivity under ideal conditions, although a lifespan of 10 years is more common. In the wild, it is thought that they may live 4-6 years.
All dart frogs for sale at Josh's Frogs are well started juveniles, and are at least 2-3 months old.
Feeding: Most poison dart frogs prefer smaller foods. All of the darts Josh's Frogs sells will readily eat Drosophila melanogaster fruit flies.
Large adult darts will readily consume Drosophila hydei fruit flies and pinhead crickets. All ages of poison dart frogs will enjoy springtails and isopods. All feeder insects should be dusted with a vitamin/mineral supplement.
