I'd highly recomend to not change anything in the tank ( if you mist automaticly), there is a good reason the male chose to deposit the tadpole in this particular bromeliad. Also, if you "refresh" the water too much, there will not be all the food available for the tadpole since it might get flushed away.

I forgot to say : congrats on the tadpoles! You will never get tired of seeing your frogs with tadpoles on their back

@ Indrap : That's good information! I always assumed most ranitomeya did not take care of tadpoles. So thanks allot for sharing the names of all the Ranitomeya that are able to eggfeed!

Never the less, I will always recomend raising tadpoles by hand if you want the most (healthy) offspring. Ofcourse this does not aply for Oophaga.
