what makes you think they are ready in the first place? I have seen many of my mantella eggs wriggling around in side of their eggs for days, but they definitely are not ready to come out. As long as you have kept the eggs very moist, then they should be able to easily break free from them when the time comes. If they had dried out a bit, then I would definitely help them out as the egg will probably be a little bit tougher. ALso, I don't think helping them would be harmful to them in the future. I ahd a good reason why I thought this, but my mind is blank right now :roll: maybe I will htink of it later,
