Default Call for help: Breeding African dwarf frogs

Mike asked me: Have you you bred African dwarf frogs? Mine have just laid eggs. I've just looked up breeding on the internet and found an article that says that they are almost impossible to raise from eggs? Did you find this to be true?

I have bred African dwarf frogs (Hymenochirus species) on several occasions and found them fairly easy. I used a 45x30cm planted heated tank with an air-driven sponge filter to provide good water quality and a very gentle current.
When the eggs hatch, start the larvae on infusoria or pond water then onto sifted Daphnia and/or brine shrimp. Once they get onto grindalworms you're away!
Good luck!
