Default Letting Tincs fully raise tads?

Does anyone allow their tincs to fully raise their tads to froglets on their own? Is it possible to allow the fathers to completely raise them from egg to froglet?

Or do they just ignore the tads after they are deposited?

Pretty much ignore the tads after they are deposited. Only the thumbnails/ranitomeya (sp?) and eggfeeders/Oophaga (or something like that... I don't use the new names so I'm not up on their spelling) care for their tads after that.

That's not to say they won't be raised in tank, a number of froggers, including myself, have let tinc group tads grow up in tank. Pretty fun until you have to catch the litter buggers.

Thanks Corey,

I guess I may try to let them deposit them and then I will pull them out with the exception of one or two. So I assume I would just need to feed them as I do the rest that are being hand raised?

For the ones staying in tank, you can supplement their foods, but usually the areas they are in are grungey with all sorts of yummy stuff, so you don't have to feed them as much. I usually just check their body weight... if they are nice and round without my help, I won't feed them extra. If they aren't nice and round, I'll feed them a little bit to keep them round. Really depends on how many tads in the area, and if the pond is over grazed or not, and I don't want to add to much food and mess up the water quality... it's a little harder to do a water change, lol.

Ah Good Point! Thanks

I have a 4 Egg WooHoo from yesterday so hopefully I can test out this option

After my last big batch my Sips just stopped breeding completely for 10 months.
