Default Raising Pums

I have a pair of Christo Pumilio's in a 15 gallon with a number of Broms and the tank is overflowing with creeping fig. Well, over the past 2 months I have found a few froglets but they always disappear after a day or two. The tank has springtails in there for them. But they still keep disappearing.
Today I found another froglet and was wondering if I should move the froglet and was wondering if I should move it to another much less planted tank. I have read a few times on the board that folks recommend against moving froglets but I have not had any success in raising froglets in the current setup. Has anyone had success with moving the froglets?

I have had 3 christo froglets die on me, found them all drowned in film canisters, no idea from the cause. The last one, I pulled from the tank with the parents and put it in a smaller tank with springtails and plenty of cover, with no standing water. So far so good on this one.

We are currently working on a caresheet for Pums, but it will still have holes when it is released as there are just not answers for all of these questions. Many people have problems keeping the froglets alive, and even further problems with raising them to adulthood. Some species offspring also do not breed very well. Basically there is still a lot to be learned on the care and breeding of these animals.

You may want to read this thread, and remember these are things that help, but may not be solutions to the problems.

You can find a bit more info by searching for:
Calcium gluconate

Another aspect that I think people over look with Pumilio is that they seem to better with a lot more space than most people offer then. 10gals and some would argue even 15gals are too small.

And at least one person would argue that even 20 gallons is too small.

:-)

The care sheet is going to be geared towards giving them as much space as possible.
