Dendrobates auratus "Blue"

One of the most popular forms of auratus, these make up for their fairly shy nature by being so beautiful! As with most auratus, they are pretty easy to breed, and usually do well in small groups.

Status in Hobby
While best results will probably be achieved in pairs, this frog often can be bred very well in groups. Using a group setting to sex them is also helpful. Set up a group, and allow them to pair off with each other. Separate pairs if desired, or if breeding is not successful. Stable and fairly common.
