Dendrobates Tinctorius Cobalt is a large, bold, great beginner Dart Frog. As with all Tinctorius, Cobalts are best kept in pairs, and are very easy to breed. However, they are not sexable until until 10 to 12 months of age. They can be kept in groups until sexual maturity but then MUST be separated and kept in pairs. Adult Females average approximately 2 inches and males slightly smaller at approximately 1 .75 inches. It is recommended that a pair be kept in no less than a 20 H or a 18 x 18 x 18. They are considered terrestrial so more ground space is ideal with these guys with plenty of plant cover and hides.
Dendrobates Tinctorius Cobalts prefer to lay eggs under Cocohuts, so its best to place a few throughout to try and entice them to lay their eggs in them. Place a Petri Dish under the Hut to make it easy to pull the eggs if you choose to do so.
