Sylvaticus laying
#1
These are all through screen so they're kind of dull -

Heard some calling later than usual so I looked in there to see the male standing on the female's back, but they didn't take off when I got up close so I knew something was up, if you look under the female you can see the eggs under her, then the male took off after a while but she stayed on top of them shifting around so I guess she was depositing more gel, they lay on this leaf a lot because in the first pic those are old dried up bad eggs next to them

Hi Chris,when we first started thinking about darts i stumbled across sylvatica and histrionica,and immediately fell for them,so they will always be my personal dream frogs. As i reserched more i found that they are one of the most difficult species to breed successfully,with problems associated with the youngsters.My dreams of having these will never wain but i know now that i have alot of knowledge to gain before i can do then justice,which is imperative whith such special and scarce animals.
First up congratulations,massively so,second up,the questions start,sorry Big Grin .Chris what is this morph called in the states? How are these going on now i see its some time since you posted this did they hatch? Is there any advice that you can give to a novice ie reading material.and anything that you have learned with you experiances with them. I have seen you also have red heads too do you keep other morphs?
Ha its funny i posted on one of the english forums about my deep obsession with these frogs,and within no time was offered a pair of white foots,from germany if i remember correct,but might be wrong.Of course i turned it down,as no way did i feel ready still don't...was one of the hardest things i have ever done,really hard.Gonna work as hard as we can on getting the beginner species wired first,then in a good while try to tackle some basti pums(ha that viv is built,but will now just sit,and get properly established),and then maybe one day....We don't really move fast in this hobby,we spent i think around 18 months for our first frogs,so its just more of that good ol homework.Thanks for posting very greatful for anything you can throw back. Dispite my mad sense of humour we are deeply serious about our darts
Regards
Stu

Hi, these are San Lorenzos, yeah I got a couple of other morphs going, so far the stuff that has worked for me is - start with healthy frogs, large enclosures especially since the young need to stay in the tank at least 6 months, large broms, lots of plants, height as well as floor space, lots of microfauna, springtails and dwarf isopods, ff's dusted with something like Repashy Calcium Plus (for retinol), then sometimes PATIENCE because some of my morphs took longer than a year to crank out any good eggs (maybe not fertilized, maybe just not good).

Thanks Chris much appreciated,we are able to get the repashy over here and are already using it.Yes i am aware that most folks seem to have best results leaving the kids in the viv for around 6 months, similar to pumillio.What size vivs are we talking,could you give me dimensions rather than gallons,just means more to me.Ha no worries on the patience front!What kind of temperatures do you work at for these?
VERY grateful for the reply,i bet you get bombarded about these,this is not an idle whim for us,and i know it will take us a long time to aquire sufficient knowledge but am utterly determined,to learn all we can,
Thanks again

Sure, really just go as large as possible, the bigger the better, they need lots of floor space, lots of strong plants for visual barriers and climbing, and height for climbing, good temps are the usual non-pumilio 70-78F.
