Bad Pumilio Parents?
I have a pair of San Christobal Pumilio's that have laid a total of 10 eggs in the last 3 weeks. 8 were fertile and became tads. But only 1 "disappeared." Both times tads died in the egg mass. The second time it really bothered me because all 4 eggs hatched and the "tads" were really moving around in the mass. But the parents just let them sit.
I bought the pair as a proven pair so I am guessing they laid eggs at least once in the past.
The frogs are in a 15 gallon horizontal setup with a 4 broms and about 12 film canisters, filed with water, throughout the tank. So there are many tad depositing choices.
My question is..Has anyone ever run into a situation where the parents just never get to understanding how to raise tads?
