Default When to add froglets with parents

I have one vent froglet,( who is now about 38 days old) that I would like to add to the pair's enclosure until it is just old enough to breed( then i would pull him out and sell him to prevent him/her from breeding with t he parents.) Would that work out or would there be aggression?

Not sure on readditions.... I leave my froglets in their parents tank (so obviously let the parents raise them) and don't take them out until they are half to 3/4 the size of the adults... never had any problems. In fact the froglets tool around with the parents most of the time, hunting next to them, climbing on the glass together... I don't think the parents would view them as a threat until they were sexually active. Could be wrong on that though.

I had two vents that were raised from ~2 months to 8 months in am 18x18x24 exo terra, then I added 4 ~2 month old vents. No aggression problems, and every vent is nearing adult size. Take note, there's a good chance you won't see several of the vents for the first couple of months.

the froglet should find some of its food in the leaf litter right? I do feed it FF, but I think it is easier for it to pick up smaller things in the leaves. I am just watching right now to make sure it doesnt start getting thin.

It has started to stay in the general area of the parents when feeding.

I wouldn't worry too much about it. Vents tend to do well with high population densities, anyway.
