Default O. Pumilio Solarte Froglet

Figured I should show one of my froglets that just came out of the water yesterday! The pair has 3 other tads in broms right now so I'm elated!

You always get a great feeling when you find new froglet, no matter how many you have.

Awesome, congrats, get some springtails in there, those guys will be very hungry a day or two after they emerge......

Thanks for all the great comments guys. It definitely is exciting to find new froglets even though I've had tons morph out in the past 1.5 years(not pumilio though). It definitely does not get old! It looks like this little guy should have an interesting pattern, hopefully like his dad, but we'll see. I've put a good amount of springtails in his container and I have ordered calcium gluconate to supplement his calcium needs for the first couple of months before he can eat dusted fruit flies. Is there anything else I should do or get for the froglet?

Thanks guys. As for the calcium gluconate, I add a drop of it on the back of each froglet once every week.

with the supplements available these days and plenty of microfauna you don't really need calcium gluconate. I have produced a lot of pumilio froglets over the last two years without it.

I use calcium gluconate because I do not add calcium bearing substrates, e.g. clay, to my vivs. Although I do dust my flies at every feeding, the froglets can't consume them until they are at least a couple of months old. Thus, they'd have no source of calcium if I did not add the drops weekly and up to this day, all of my pum froglets have been raised in this matter and look great.

Well, like many things in this hobby, its whatever works for you. However, I do not use calcium enriched soil or the gluconate, or anything else other then lots of sprintails and some isos and some occasional dusted ff's. Another way you could introduce calcium earlier would be to dust the springtails, although I don't do this either. Just something for your consideration...

Enjoy your froglets!
