|Alot of people ask, so I better clear up the confusion. NO, I do not have darklands (blue) pumilio. I lost them 3 years ago. Don't ask the details, its too depressing. :(
I hope to find more of these one day, and work with them again. I do miss them.

|Just some ramblings on keeping and breeding pumilio......
* Pumilio tend to like it warmer and drier than other dendrobatids.
* They seem to produce and care for more tads when kept in small groups
* Its a good idea to change out the bromeliads every 2-3 months, or when a group of tads morphs into froglets. Mine don't hold water as well longer than that.
* Be sure to continue feeding pumilio froglets spingtails, even after they are large enough to take ff's. Taking them off springtails too early can be detrimental.
* I've found that plastic spoons are handy for catching elusive froglets that continually dive into axils when you try to catch them.
