Darts with parasites are analogous to mixed tanks, there are no known benefits to the frogs with either.

Congrats Rich!

Im surmising they do not breed as readily as the mints? If so, I wonder how just a color difference makes the difference in ease of breeding.

Cheers,

Chris

Thanks Chris,
VERY happy.
What a lot of people don't realise is that the color is not the only difference between yellows, mints, and oranges.
I have never had mints , but as you say , I would guess at the fact that they breed a bit easier than orange or yellows, talking to a few people who have had them. They do still take awhile to mature. The orange I have had all produce colors that raged from ALMOST the same color as a yellow to a very deep pumpkin orange in the same clutch. I have worked with three distinct orange lines and they all threw different colored froglet from the same clutch. The yellows, and I am fairly sure I am the only one in the States producing true yellows, always produce yellow froglets with a metallic sheen. Out of the hundreds of froglets I have produced there have been only a couple exceptions to this rule, far less than 1%.
Yellow terribilis are smaller , have different calls, and and have different egg characteristics than orange .
Just trying to point out the differences because I know of a few froggers who have what they were told were or believed to be yellows only to find out they were oranges on the yellow end of the color spectrum.
