Dart Frogs

Has anyone here kept dart frogs? I've been researching them for about a year but would love to talk to some actual owners .

I plan on getting Dendrobates azureus or Dendrobates auratus.

My terrarium is mostly set up (just need the plants) and I want to get my frog soon. There's a reptile expo coming up in October and there's another one in November so I'm sure I'll get one before the end of the year.

The only issue I'm going to have is diet. Right after I finished setting up the tank and was about to buy some plants and a frog (at the last expo) my mom decided to tell me she won't allow fruit flies in the house . That's what pretty much everyone seems to feed and now I have to come up with a different diet plan. I was thinking of trying springtails but I'm afraid I'll end up killing them and won't be able to find more or something. Then there are pinhead crickets but I'd imagine those wouldn't be a good staple? Any thoughts?

Does your mom know that there are "wingless"/flightless fruit flies. Easy to raise and deeeeeeeelicious! Well, to dart frogs anyway.

Yup, she knows. She doesn't want any fruit flies in the house.
