Blue Poison Dart Frogs are the easiest of the poison dart frogs I have kept. They are bold and have big appetites. Though, they are much more difficult than other frogs to keep as they require a unique diet, high humidity levels, and other habitat requirements. It is very worth it though. They love to run up to the front of their tank and beg for food each time I walk by. My tree frogs sleep all day... Boring!
The trickiest part for me is maintaining fruit fly cultures for my frogs. This takes about 30 minutes each week of creating 2-3 new cultures. Fruit flies are the dart frog's staple. It is tricky to keep enough fruit flies available as the frogs eat dozens and dozens of fruit flies daily as juveniles and 4-5 times a week as adults.
My favorite part of dart frogs is their bold colors and personalities. Never a dull moment.
