Re: Pulling Eggs

Let along the guys who said up misting systems that constantly flush the water...So how often should the water changed outside of when you can smell that it's 'bad'?
I imediatly put the tadpoles in a cup of water with an oak leaf and some moss after they hatch. I feed not for the first 5 days, after this every 2 days one Hikari Koi staple (for dendrobates). I never change the water, but do a refill if needed. That's it, I raised +250 tadpoles this year on this method.
