    Default Qt size for phyllobates bicolor

    What would be the best size to Qt four bicolors? And would it be best to house them separately or together? And of you guys that have ordered darts from joshsfrogs, did you qt your frogs together? Thanks!

    Would a 15 gallon work for this? It seems better than keeping then in a 10 gallon...

    How old are they?
    If the are still juvi colors --- I would put them in a smaller QT(s)

    Are they catching/finding their food really well?
    Same - smaller is better if they are really small---
    I do QT is good in stages...for grow out.
    Smaller QT so they can feed more easily? ( observe them for a while)

    Are they from the same parents ? or are they siblings
    If yes -- I would leave them together
    If not I would separate for QT
    You could call and find out ?

    Were they shipped in separate containers?
    If they were shipped together - in the same containers --- I would leave them together.
