Okay guys, it's ultra slow at my job today. Like, no queues. Last two weeks we had over 20 in queue, this week is like zero to none it seems.

Entertain me! lol. I read digg.com alot, but some of the sites we're not allowed to go to*, which restricts the information that I like. Haha.

*some sites not allowed to go to is myspace (duh, people abuse it), youtube, google video, any blogs (sorta)

Hey, frogs will do. My co-workers love my frogs, and the frogs you guys post, so :P

Unless.. of course ,you guys have any awesome caresheets for:

*Clown TFs
*dart frogs
*RETF
*Green TF
*Milk Tree Frog (I think that's what it's called).
*golden mantellas (Referred by Sh0e)

I'm planning on getting a new frog, and my last purchase, but I have so many in mind, that I don't know what to do. Haha. I bet that happens to everyone, though =P

yeah, i got them all.... . . .

that's what happens when you have access to wholesaler's lists. add golden mantellas to that list. as long as you have good air condition or live in the north or have a nice cool basement they are pretty easy to care for.


Shhhhhhoe
Don't blame the question when you're the stupid one.

Golden mantellas? Nice. Where would you find the caresheets from? I usually use wikipedia for inside information and google for most of my information? Do you suspect I should mainly stick with g oogle to find good care sheets?

I think it's kind of bad getting payed to surf the web. Now if I were to get payed playing World Of Warcraft at work , that'd rule. haha.

Thanks a bunch sh0e. ;p

ps: sh0e... i still want a trip to japan, take me with you!!

I think the better way to think about it may be what type of tank you want (big? small? how tall, wide, long? tropical rainforest or maybe just a nice little marsh?), and if you want a frog active during the day (the darts) or at night (the tree frogs) as well as what you want to feed them (the PDFs/dart frogs you will have to culture your own food, the rest you can feed off crickets from pet shops and only have to raise your own food if you want).

RETFs and the Milky frogs have just about the same care, but the milkies like bigger cages. Clowns are very similar, but in a much smaller package (1-1.5 inches compared to the milkies getting up around 3). The Greens will be similar to the clowns, but more of a native marsh tank rather than a super humid tropical tank (so you can have just a screen lid instead of a mostly glass one).

As for the dart frogs... I've worked with a LOT of them... and there is a huge variety in them, so there really isn't one caresheet that works for them all, but many of the beginner species can have somewhat similar care, and are relatively forgiving enough in their needs compared to some other species.

There is a basic dart care sheet under care sheets on this forum that I wrote a few years ago.

Many species have been thoroughly discussed.

The best course would be to look at pictures and determine what frog you are going to get and then do a forum search.

lostriver and bonsai are two users with a lot of dart information. They no longer post, but you can find old threads loaded with information from them and I.

Got it, thanks.

I was reading up on this particular dart frog:
http://www.pollywog.co.uk/greenblackpacaresheet.ht ml

Now, as far as I can see on the dendroboard, everyone has tanks that are 50/50 water and land. However, this care sheet from pollywog on the forum states they can just have a water dish for their water pleasures. Is there really a need for the 50/50 water/land deal, or can they just live in the water dish for cleaning, daily water, etc.

Thanks guys ;p

edit:

The only reason I put this in this thread is that it's already made, but also to keep me entertained. I felt as if having it in general form for frog related wasn't proper as most of it may not have been straight frog related. If it needs to be moved for more traffic to answer or whatever, mods can you move it?

Actually, I'd say the vast majority of the people on dendroboard don't have 50/50 water/land... there just happens to be a bit of a trend right now for paludariums, and those are what are getting posted a lot of on the board. It's actually a bit of a debate on how much water you should have in the tank... as in too much can be a very bad thing as it increases the drowning risk in PDFs which the majority of the ones in the hobby generally aviod larger water bodies. A shallow water bowl is much less risky, easier to keep clean. A number of my tanks don't even have a water bowl, but I've kept them for so many years that humidity levels aren't usually an issue... but the bowl is a great safety measure in case the tank dries out too much.
