Default Oyapock egg and tadpole advice.

I had previously thought my pair wouldn't produce as I have had them for a little over 3 years now. I discovered just recently they have made 4 fertalized and seemingly healthy eggs on a leaf. I have a pool of standing water in the tank... Should I trust them to deposit the eggs in the water themselves or would you guys recommend a petri dish and then put into a cup with the tadpole tea?

I would pull them. If they are new to this, there is no guarantee that they will be able to get the tads to water effectively. As with the other coincidentally-timed thread, I would suggest pulling the leaf out, cutting around where the eggs are, and putting that piece in a container you can cover, and putting enough water in to just tough the bottom of the eggs. The tadpole tea is for later after the eggs have hatched. I think regular dechlorinated tap water works for while they are still in the egg, assuming your tap water is historically safe.
