Default Froglet enclosure necessity and details

Hi, I’m going to be receiving some R. uakarii tadpoles and have a few questions about raising them once they’re froglets. I’ve read several threads and articles about it, but I still have a few questions when it comes time to raising them. It seems that people grow them out in a dedicated froglet enclosure and just wondering why that is done. Can they be placed directly into their eventual vivarium if there are no other inhabitants? Is this primarily so you can monitor their growth and make sure you're able to target feed them? Does anyone have a pic of their grow out enclosure they’d be willing to post? Thanks for the help!

Some people opt to remove froglets and or eggs from their parents tanks. It is entirely the keepers choice to do so or not. There are a variety of reasons keepers may wish to remove froglets. The first is to allow the froglets to grow free of competition from their larger parents and or siblings. Some remove them if they have concerns with overcrowding. Some remove them to temporary enclosures when they are ready to find new homes for their froglets.

I don't have a pic on me and I'm at work, but the grow out enclosure doesn't need to be elaborate. I usually use clear plastic tubberware containers with some leaf litter and a few plant clippings. Use the search function and look up "grow out tank" for some ideas. If I am understanding your current situation though, I would just put them directly into their final home and forgo the grow out tank all together.

Thanks Michael, this is a huge help! I really appreciate it. You're correct, their eventual home does not have any inhabitants, so I will move them directly into it. Thanks again, have a great weekend!

I added a picture of one of the plastic containers I use too raise froglets in this topic : https://www.dendroboard.com/forum/ad.../350758?page=1

It has been my personal preference to raise newly-morphed PDFs in small tupperware or similar containers, at least initially, mainly to keep a high concentration of food items and to be able to visually monitor them. Good luck.
