    Hi there - could you be more specific? Do you know the species of frog you're looking for?

    As far as i know (new to dart frogs) there is only 1 species of red frog......the pumilio. Is there more red (whole red) frog species im missing?

    Don't jump straight into the harder species like Pumilio is my recommendation much harder to keep than Tincs etc.

    As the user above has noted, pumilio are typically viewed as more advanced frogs.

    Now that we know the species you're interested in, perhaps someone with them will chime in, though they aren't too common in Canada...yet.

    Why would you say that they are harder to keep than tincs?

    I wouldn't say they are harder to keep then any other dartfrog but not the best beginner frog..mainly because of the way they breed and feed tads and the difficulty of keeping babies alive for the first few months and their territorial habits that a beginner might not notice also the rarity in Canada.

    Just a recommendation many people have said to me when I started out so I just assumed they were harder to keep/breed I assumed Tincs were hardier. Biggest point definitely is that the Pumilios are crazy expensive in Canada since there are so few of them.

    Some red galactonotus came in the late 90's but I haven't heard of anyone still keeping them.
