Default Red eyed tree frog eggs and egg development!

Ok i know that these are not darts and this is kind of a dart only forum but after having no luck breeding my Cvally imitators i took to breeding my red eyes. I thought some of you would find this interesting. I have a group of 3 males and 2 females. I tried breeding them earlier in the summer but had no luck. So after forgetting about the project for awhile i decided to try again but with a vertical tank instead of horizontal. I came home 2 days after they had been in there rain tank and bam! Eggs!!! So i have been taking pictures day to day after removing them from the rain chamber. here is day two (because i left them in there for a night).
Day 3

Day 4
Day 7
Day 8
Day 9 first tad!
here is my tad setup
Day 15 and GROWING FAST!

Here are the proud parents http://lh6.ggpht.com/_tZ0unVL8Fkk/TK...0/DSC_8775.JPG

And here is a updated pic about 23 days later with legs!!!!! Let me know what you think!

That is so very awesome. It's so hard to find cb RETF's I'm glad there are those out there making the effort. Are you using a macro lens for those egg pics?

I now have 4 adults (3 males and 1 female) and 14 juveniles. I'm selling them and planning to keep just 3 or 4 more to increase my group. Here are some pics of the process, hope yo enjoy it!

This is XXX rated!



DAY 1:
Lots of eggs (4 leafs like this one)


DAY 2:
They start changing...


DAY 3:
There are tads in there!


DAY 4:
About to hatch


DAY 5:
They started hatching...


DAY 16:
They swim and eat... That's all




DAY 31:
Just eating


DAY 36:
They started changing their color...




DAY 38:
The front legs poped out!




DAY 39:
Before moving them to a growing tank



To compare their sizes


Absorving their tails


A Juvenile...


That's all!! I really hope you like it and hopefully it will be usefull for you!!

Junior.

Thank you for the info on this. I have 5 red eyes who are showing signs of mating and I am hoping to have this happen for me also and have some little ones.

Wow, such a quick morph! The only tads I've raised are T.corticale (Vietnamese mossy frog) and I wondered if my 9 yr old was going to graduate high school before they got hind legs.
RETF are so on my list now!

I think the tricky part, unlike with darts, is creating that 'rain chamber' so that they----tree frogs----will mate....the regular tank home is easy peasy. I love my red eye male...he calls every night!

Great pictures guys...no collection is complete without some of these guys!
