Default O.P.bastimentos "red frog beach" males fighting

In the picture bellow you can see my most dominant male (the most red one) fighting with another male for territorial and breeding purpose.



I keep them 3.3 in a 100x50x50 tank for over 7 years now.

Great picture! Do you find that the males fight more or the females? When do you try to pull offspring to avoid conflict? I am trying to figure all of that out with my Red Frog Beach Bastis, too :-) I saw one of my females (I have 1.2 in a much smaller tank) wrestling with one of the offspring yesterday. She is quite a bit bigger than the froglet. I don't like that kind of aggression in my tanks if I can avoid it.

If there is aggression, the dominant male is always involved. I have rarely seen aggression towards offspring. When this happens, i just chase off the male and keep a close eye on the frogs for the next two days or more. But it almost never happens. I raise their offspring in the same tank until they are +-6months old and ready for sale.

Great pic!

I'd be curious to see how you have them set up- any front tank pics?

Looks great!

Are those containers in the front springtail/isopod cultures?

Whenever these frogs have offspring, i like to keep these cultures in the tank. So there is allot of small (young) springtails and isopots available for them to eat. I think that is key for raising pumilio juveniles.

That's great information! I am almost certain that what I saw was a female on top of a froglet. It looked odd because it looked like she had 5 legs :-) It may just have been that they were going after the same food or something similar. I like to pull my offspring a little bit earlier than that just because I am paranoid about them getting big enough that I have trouble figuring out which are the parents. Thanks for posting!

Yes this is defentily possible, every frog has a different personality. I think it is very wise of you to put your froglets in a different tank if one of your frogs shows dominant or aggressive behavior towards the young frogs. Regardles of the dominant frog being a male or female,they are strong or heavy enough to probably ingure or even kill the juvenille frog.

I realy know my frogs well, so i don't have a problem of knowing which frog is parent or offspring . I understand that this is not the case for everyone and i admit sometimes the frogs realy look a like!
