I have 4 dart frogs temps good eating fine but there are little white worms in the tank in the water I just saw 3 for the first time?" Are they parasites? or possible fruit fly larva?

Sounds like parasites to me. You might want to clean out the terrarium and get some new bedding. Its always better to be safe than sorry.

Go to Dartden.com. I think I had those as well when I had my setup and was told they’re okay. I think they are larvae of springtails which the frogs eat. Don’t quote me though.
