Ranitomeya fantastica "True Nominal"

Ranitomeya fantastica "True Nominal"

As thumbnail dart frogs go, this has to be at the upper end of the scale in terms of appearance.  Each and every one of them has the glowing gold/bronze head, the amazing white/yellow band around the body, and the spectacular reticulated blue on the hindquarters and legs. 

Fantastica are one of those frogs that are hard to make definitive statements about.  They can be shy, but generally this is before they start breeding, once breeding begins they seem to lose a bit of their shyness and you will see a lot more of them.  They can be difficult to breed, but once you have a solid group or pair, they can be very productive frogs.  Overall this is a highly recommended dart frog.  Generally speaking you can keep them in small groups, watch for any serious fighting, and watch that all members of the tank are maintaining body weight.  

This frog is a little more advanced than some of the beginner level thumbnail frogs, so probably not the best for your first thumbnail frogs. 

We provide a bit more detailed information about this frog on our  Dart Frog Species Profile page for this species, here.
