I got a group of 4 of these lovely frogs off a local breeder a few months back and hadnt posted any pics for some reason.
They are a lovely species, bright, voracious feeders and extremely bold.
Here are a couple when I first got them and they had their juvenile colouration:

awesome frogs. Beautiful. Am I right in assuming that in captivity, they are not actually poisonous?
 
Great animals and tank. I can see two different 'probes' in your photos - how are you heating the tank?

Whenever i see pictures from dartfrog keepers i´m often conflicted. I don´t know what i like the most, the frogs or the vivariums :D
In your case, both are beautiful so i´ll praise both, hehe.

Yes, Molch, the toxins are diet dependent so captive animals who are fed an "artifitial" diets, are not poisonous.
 
Cheers guys

The black probe is for an electronic max/min thermometer and the white cable probe is attached to a thermostat which heats the viv by way of a heat mat attached to the back of the viv.
