Best sex ratio to go with Azureus?

Postby krakanax » Sat Dec 08, 2012 12:52 pm

Hi,

Tomorrow I will be in Brussel (Belgium) visiting a breeder, a friend I have not seen for over 5 years.
I will go there with a friend of mine who wants to get some D. azureus from him, they are F1 Azureus subadults.

I never had any big species such as leucomelas, Auratus or Azureus but I was thinking about giving it a try as those animals will be sexed and F1.

Here is what I am wondering about ...
Should I go for a simple Azureus couple or for a trio? One Male and two females or two males and a female?
What do you think about it? What would you go for?

Tia,

K.

Definitely not 2 females. Females get very scrappy.

1.1 is best if you are a new-er hobbyist.

if you have some decent experience with Dart Frogs in general and feel confident....2.1 is a very good ratio used by many, many breeders and hobbyists.

Hi Phil,

Thank you for your answer.
That's the information I was looking for, right on.
I will go for a 2.1 or a couple. I have to talk about it with my friend breeder.

This friend is a "big species" breeder.
Right now he has tons of Tinctorius for sell (very probably over a hundred of them, may be two hundred ... I will let you know tomorrow night) and some Azureus and Leucomelas.
I will have my camera with me, if We have time I will take some pics ;)

Just got back home from the Brussel day trip.
Hugly weather up there, lots of rain :(

I have three Azureus at home now, two F1 males and one F1 female.
All of them are from different couples.
