Default Golden mantellas juveniles

Hey guys! I have four golden mantella juveniles between the ages of 5-10 months (didn't exactly keep count). They are F1, with wild caught parents from last years shipment. One is a dark orange color and looks about full grown. They're eating like crazy. Anyone one want them? I won't be shipping them out until the weather cools down a bit, just seeing if anyone was interested in some golden mantellas as I have about 100 tadpoles many of which are developing front arms. PM me please!

@Epicmuffin- I live in Kansas City where most of this summer has been over 100 degrees, have kept them in my basement where it's cooler, and had no problems!

Pictures will be up in a few days, i'm asking $60 ea. per subadult.

Here's some pictures-
The first three are of the subadults for sale. As you can see there is a lot of color differences. The younger ones aren't finished coloring up, however.

The next is of my simple tadpole setup. No tadpole fatalities as of yet! I usually spot clean it every day. Never done a full water change.

The next two is of the first newly morphed froglet of this large batch of tadpoles.

All the rest are of my adult breeding group (4.2) and their enclosure. I moved them over to a 30 gallon high vertical tank because I saw a lot of climbing activity. After the move they started eating more and laid their first clutch.

I'm retired and have been a frog hobbyist for over 10 years. One of my favorite frogs is Aurantiaca.
Are you willing to sell tadpoles at this time?
Temps here in Minnesotas have dropped to the middle 70's and should hold for a week or so. Could you give me a quote if you will sell tads? If price is affordable, I'd like 10.
Please say "YES!" At 67, you'd make an old lady very happy

I'll PM all of you when I get some ready to ship. I have 50-60 froglets right now, and the earliest some will be available is early November. They're doing well, coloring up after the first month (i dust them with coloring supplements and their staple diet as tadpoles was fish food with color enhancers). One is almost completely colored up. Also, I have no more tadpoles left! All are out of the water. Sorry guys ): JP

I so far haven't had any problems housing so many together. If ya want any let me know! I'm feeding them a main diet of tetracolor color enhancing fish food with bloodworms, chlorella, and frog and tadpole bites. Thanks! JP

Thank you for the reply. It looks like I have around 25 blackear tads as of today. I may divide them so if anything goes wrong, it may only go wrong in one container. When will you have golden's ready to ship, still in November?

Thanks

Here's a pic of some of three of the many froglets I have. Just scooped them out and took a pic to show the color variation. All are relatively close in age. These particular froglets are already reserved. Please note- these froglets are all from the same parents, around the same age, housed together, and given the same food. They are not different morphs. The froglets just all have different coloring. They are only about two months ootw so they have a lot more coloring up to do! If you want to get in contact with me, please email me at [email protected]! The prices of the froglets are $60 a piece with discounts for five or more. Thanks!

How do you raise your tadpoles, temperature, pH, food, etc. what type of tadpole mortality do you usually experience?

Thank you

David

All in all, about a 1/4 of my tads died. I feed them mainly color enhancing fish food(which really makes them color up easily) and occasionally bloodworms, spirulina/chlorella, and tadpole bites. I posted a pic of the tad setup on this thread. I had the tads when they first hatched with pothos and 1/4 inch of water and slowly progressed that to 4 inches of water with pothos for hiding. When they started looking like they were becoming froglets, I sloped the container with a book and let them crawl up. AS for water temp and PH, I have no idea. I kept them downstairs where the temperature was about 70-74 degrees. I had all RO water in the tank. Thanks!
