#1. You can get nice quarentine containers from Josh's frogs , 190 0z'ers ( or a 2 1/2 gal small aquarium ). I put mine together like a little viv . Some substrate and leaf litter and a couple plants . And LOTS of springtails. You don't have to clean them as much as if you use paper towls or spaghnum . I usually have a couple setup before hand just without the plants , just like a springtail culture and When I get a froglet I just put in a couple plants and the froglet he should have food for a while . This is how I do it other people have other methods .

#2.& 3. I would let him at least absorb his tail before pulling him . Keep an eye on him and wait till he goes out of his brom exploring for the first time . Then I usually use a small plastic container ( I use a square shaped one rather than round that way if he climbs the glass you can lay it flat and get him to go in it ) and try and coax them into it with a spoon or something .

3 froglets that's awesome . That's the most I've got at one time , but who knows there could be another one in there .
I've kept 2 Escudo froglets in one of the round 190 oz containers for a few months , then I'll move them into a 10 gal setup , but they are smaller frogs . You might be able to get away with it for a short time untill they grow .
2 1/2 G. on top of a ten


The plants grow better in these little things than in my vivs ! I have to trim them every couple weeks .

Default pumilio froglet

I have had a mancreek froglet for about a month now, in a 29 gallon vert with two females and a male. I wasnt planning on removing him, and I haven't seen a response regarding that...is there a reason he has to be lonely? I put a cup of springtail dirt in every week, and he seems to be fine-don't know if he can take ff yet, he's pretty little........what is the rationale for removal?

I don't remove mine. I leave them in the breeding viv until they start to become difficult to tell from an adult. Then I remove them before I lose track of which are juvenile and which are my breeding pair. Lately I've typically had about 4 juveniles in with the breeding pair at any given time. At one point it was up to 8 juveniles. I think the biggest rationale for removal is food. Second is stress/bullying from other frogs. Both depend on the size of the viv and the density of frogs in that viv. I have 648 sq. inches of floor area for my breeding pair and whatever juvies are present. But even with that much space, 8 juvies was pushing the limit but everyone survived without being removed. But these froglets tend to be large enough to eat ff within a couple days of emmerging from their broms so that helps.
