Got a group of these around the end of March, UE usually sells froglets 3-4 months OOW, these *may* have been slightly older but were still pretty small.
Anyway, some weeks ago a calling male started to get followed by a female; I placed a Petri dish and coconut hut in the tank and they promptly stopped.
I figured Iíd spooked Ďem, since I didnít see calling or courtship again. This morning Iím drinking coffee and see this:
...male in question transporting a tadpole. They laid the eggs elsewhere and I donít know how many made it to this stage. I put a couple of dishes of tadpole tea in the tank and walked away.
Heís since succeeded in kicking the tad off into the water:
...havenít seen another at this time.
Iím tempted to search the tank but feel it may be too disruptive. There are a number of places they could have deposited eggs ... beneath the leaf litter are multiple voids created by hollows between river stones.
I hadnít actually expected breeding this soon; gonna take some time to research further today as it caught me off guard.
I also have 7 terribilis tadpoles in the water right now and what looks like 5 more on the way, so this could be a busy Spring/early Summer...
