About This Product

Defining Characteristics: Great beginner frog | Green, yellow, or blue coloration | Bold | Easy to breed | Quiet call | Large | Can be kept in groups when young | Best kept in pairs as adults

Name: Dendrobates tinctorius 'Green Sipaliwini'. Commonly called the Dyeing Poison Dart Frog (based on an early belief that natives used brightly colored frogs to dye fabric). In the hobby, often referred to as Sips or Green Sips, or Sipaliwini Tincs.

Recommended Vivarium Size: A 10 gallon aquarium is suitable for a single Dendrobates tinctorius 'Green Sipaliwini', but Josh's Frogs recommends a 20H or 18x18x18 Vivarium for 1-3 frogs. Not sure how to set up a vivarium? Please watch our video on How to Set Up a Vivarium.

Temperature: Dendrobates tinctorius 'Green Sipaliwini' can tolerate a temperature range of 65 F to 80 F, but prefer temperatures in the low to mid 70s. Temperatures over 85F are dangerous.

Humidity: Like most poison dart frogs, Green Sipaliwini 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.

Size: Adult female Green Sipaliwini are larger, measuring in at approximately 2.25 inches. Male Green Sipaliwini are a bit smaller, averaging about 1.75 inches at maturity. All of the Dendrobates tinctorius 'Green Sipaliwini' froglets Josh's Frogs sells are well started juveniles, and measure approximately .75-1” long.

Age: Dendrobates tinctorius 'Green Sipaliwini' is 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 Green Sipaliwini may live 4-6 years. All Green Sipaliwini for sale at Josh's Frogs are well started juveniles, and are 2-3 months old. Many of our breeders are well over a decade in age, and show no sign of slowing down.

Feeding: Like most poison dart frogs, Green Sipaliwini prefer smaller foods. All of the Green Sipaliwini Josh's Frogs sells will readily eat Drosophila melanogaster fruit flies. Adult Dendrobates tinctorius 'Green Sipaliwini' 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. For more information on what poison dart frogs can eat, please visit our How-To Guide on Feeding Poison Dart Frogs.

Color/Pattern: A very variable poison dart frog, most young Dendrobates tinctorius 'Green Sipaliwini' are mostly green in color with a varying degree of black spots. The green can range from a very dark, deep green to a light yellow in some individuals. Spots can be large in some individual Green Sipaliwini, but generally are less than 1cm across. Green Sipaliwini tincs can become blue or yellow in coloration with age. In our experience, even though most froglets start out life green, about 80% stay green, 15% turn yellow, and 5% become blue animals. Josh's Frogs does not recommend, support, or endorse line breeding as we believe this leads to weaker captive animals and nature has done a wonderful job of creating an amazing variation in color and pattern of poison dart frogs already.
