1. check out dendroboard.com for dart enclosures, amphibiancare.com is another great resource.

2. green and black dart=dendrobates auratus, there are many morphs and some are shier than others so if you want a bold frog make sure to research the different morphs.

cobolt blue=dendrobates tinctorius, and the "cobolt blue" is the trade name for a specific morph of tinctorius. these are hardy frogs but are territorial so unless you have a huge tank pairs are best (if you buy juvies you may not get a pair).

mantella auriantiaca- not a dart, mantellas are a genus of frog that evolved independently from dendrobates (actually more closely related to ranids). this species is not available in the states currently (publically) but mark pepper of understory enterprises is breeding them but there's a wait list.

3. check out the plant section 'stickies' in db.

4. darts don't require uvb and neither do the plants. if you are going to have a glass lid the uvb will not go through anyway.
