How many tads do pumilio raise?
 
I am getting some pumilio soon, and I wanted to know how many tads they will raise to froglets, as I have seen a few pictures with 6+ eggs, and that seemed like a large clutch to me.

They usually lay many more than they will actually raise, at least in captivity. Don't expect more than a few at a time.

I have had them raise 4 froglets, two about a week apart. The later ones were much smaller. Its been a while since they have done some parental work:(

As Rob stated, they will usually lay a few more than they actually raise. You may see a few of the embryo simply not make it to hatching or come out with deformalities. I propose that the larger clutrch sizes is to make up for these 'errors'. I once had a pair of long term captive bri bris that went through 3 clutches before getting it right. The 4th clutch contained 7 eggs but only 4 had survived the internal development and only 3 had made it as neonates. My current almirante pair had laid a clutch of 6 but only 3 made it to the water. All in all, don't expect them all to make it....feeding eggs to a large group is probably very taxing on the females.

I have a question. When you see offspring how do you get them out of the tank? It's hard enough trying to catch a frog that small, let alone a tiny baby. :D

Jared,

That is a very good question. I don't know what the rest fo the pumilio breeders do, but I waited until the froglets had left the broms completely and started hunting on their own. This took place about 3 days after they first emerged. I located the individual froglets and ushered them into film canisters and transported them to smaller acrylic 'critter keepers' which had been pre-made with a colony of springtails well established.

I have been leaving mine in the tank with the parents. Just throwing in extra food....It seems to be working so far. It takes the babies a while to get comfortable enough to leave the broms and wander in the tank (a week or two). As they continue to get bigger I will consider moving them out of the tank, but so far so good

I don't use many bromeliads and most of my pumilio raise their young in 1oz. condiment cups. I use a cup inside a cup and when I see the front legs come out I just remove the inside cup and place it in the container where the young froglet will be raised. No chasing froglets around disturbing the adults. Just what works for me.

rmelancon,

did you have a foto of these cups, please?
