Different kind of life in a glass box

I received an ExoTerra as a gift from my husband and spent the last week designing this little dart frog habitat. I think it turned out well for a first attempt and I will be adding more plants as I find them and trying to not overplant so these have some room to grow. The frogs are green and black auratus.

Yes, technically they are, but after captive breeding, they lose alot of their toxicity. They are safe to handle unless they are wild caught. These are CB dendrobates auratus.

I'm pretty sure poisionous dart frogs loose the toxins when they can't be fed a certain type of ant that is thier main diet in the wild.
