#2. INCREASE the number of broms available for tad depositon. I try to go with a rule of 3 broms minimum per pumilio - male or female. That gives them the choices that they need. 9-10 broms in a 20 or 33 gallon viv is not that many.
#3 Leave the froglets in the parental viv until juvenile size - @ 5 weeks or more. They seem to do better this way.
#4 MASTER the art of culturing springtails and keep feeding out every other day, at least, as the adults will eat a large percentage of them.
#5 Place 2-3 of the 5 week old Pums in nicely planted 10 gallon verts for grow out. ...see...the 10 gallon tank does have a use after all !
Just some suggestions since you PM'ed me.......works for me. Your mileage may vary.
Thanks for posting on here Phil. I pulled three of them out and their is still two left.
Looks like I will have to go out and get some 10g and start having some fun building them!!
I was thinking about getting another female but I have them in a 12 12 18 zoo med so I might just upgrade to a bigger tank....
