Default so.. what mantella sp. are you breeding this season?

What mantella are you going/trying to breed this season? I'm hoping to have success with standard expectata, pulchra and laevigata. Since these are my largest groups/calling males.

Hopefully I will breed my M. crocea and also get more milotympanum clutches.

First bernhardi crawled oow yesterday...milos almost there... tads in the viridis, aurantiaca and laevigata tank. I wouldn't be surprised in the nigricans get going as well. It's that time of year!

What makes it that time of year, is it an internal clock you think. Or some enviromental thing, other?

standards, reds, and now more mads. I need to check the crocea and pulchra tank to see if there is anything swimming around in an egg mass.

I have an aurantiaca that is as wide as she is long (if not fatter).Hopefully she will not pop before she drops her eggs!

It really comes down to demand and capacity. I'm giving a few groups a go this year so made 30 new springtail cultures... Hopefully get a good mix this year.

I haven't fully decided, but if anyone wants to work with a group of 12 pulchra, let me know. I don't know if I'm going to get around to breeding them again this season.

Unfortunately the clutch collapsed after about 10 days. I will attribute this to the fact that they are still young and still hold out hope for the season as the calling and courting continues at a furious pace.

my only two standard expectata tadpoles sprouted arms.

I moved some pulchra tadpoles into a plastic bin today.

Got about 30 expectata tads in the water and 18 pulchra tads. Goldens have only laid one infertile clutch. Fingers crossed for more

I didn't think my group of viridis had reached maturity yet. Guess I was wrong. Pulled 149 tadpoles and have another clutch that looks fertile. Woooot!

^^^ Wow! That's a whole lot of tads! I know another DB member that is crazy for mantellas! I'm sure he'd love to get a small group from ya! Beautiful little frogs!

Thanks, Chris.

Ok, here's what has given me tads/froglets this season so far: aurantiaca, bernhardi, betsileo, & laevigata. So far so good, hope everyone else is doing good with them.

Once again...!!! WOW and Holy S#!T! Congrads!

Feel free to ship a few to Lafayette, IN! Like I said, the only other "frogger" that I know of in town is crazy for mantellas! And while you're at "300 and counting", I might as well fill one of my empty tanks with a few! Lol.

If you don't mind, let me know when they all start coming OOW and what it'd take to possibly get some shipped.

Thanks, Chris
