I'll swing by in a bit and you can give half to me... that way we can both try slightly different methods (and I can keep the ones I raise haha)

Yep, this is the new tank....I had it finished just in time for the June UE shipment when I added to the group.

As for the plant.......I wanna say it is a type of anthurium. At least it resembles one. But not the kind found at the hardware stores. I have no dirt in the tank and the plants are mostly mounted partially in the water attached to some universal rock and sphagnum moss.

Greg,
First off congratulations on the eggs.
I have seen them set up in a ten gallon aquarium before with pea gravel, about an inch deep, on the bottom. It contained large leafed aquatic plants and even some duck weed floating on the top. A bubble filter was moving/filtering the water. The tadpoles eat algae, so a good, bright light was mounted directly above the water and was on during the day to promote good algae growth. The whole thing functioned like a fish tank. I imagine that the setup went through the normal fish tank cycling processes and spiked with nitrites and nitrates etc.
It is my understanding that these take quite a long time to morph out into frogs. Think along the lines of 6-8 months.
Best of luck to you,
Chris

Oh yeah, heard it is a long ride with these guys. Wouldn't have expected that. Hopefully these make it to tadpole stage. They look to be developing.

Congrats Greg.
Good luck with them, I hope you're successful.
I'm not into tree frogs, as you know, but they're a beautiful frog & would be tops on my list if it were to ever occur (which I highly doubt).
But no need to hope, bc I know you are more than capable of seeing it thru.

Greg, grats on the eggs, and keep us posted on their development.

Awesome job man, what type of stimuli did you use to get them to breed? A rain chamber? Please let me know when you have some available!

As far as tips raising the tads: i am not extremely familiar with this species, however I know they like it cooler. I would make the water temperature about the same as what their ambient should be. I would set them up in a ten gallon with the treated water filled halfway. Indian almond leaves and java moss work excellent for places to hide and for extra treatment of the water. For filtration i would use a sponge filter or just clean the water daily. I usually feed my tree frog tadpoles crushed algae/spirulina wafers and crushed fish food/bloodworms. But a ten gallon should be big enough to hold all of them beauties and when they are ready to morph out, throw a rock or two for them to "climb" out and they should do great, hope this helps.

I have them in a 24x18x24 exo terra. The tank is filled as high as possible with water and I have a universal rock background and a universal rock piece to act as some land area. My plants are all water friendly so they are mounted on this or submerged. I use sphagnum moss around the roots....gravel in the water.

The tank drains into a canister filter and pumps up, through a splitter, one goes in as a waterfall, the other to create current. I did not get as much current as had liked for now since I have the tank up high and the canister can not push hard enough at that high. I plan to lower it once I make a new rack, which should create a little more current. I also plan to add a second drain bulkhead and lower the water line a little (it is too close to the holes so if tank isn't perfectly level, some may leak).

It is also misted. It was not misted for the first few weeks, then I misted a few times day. I feed hydei. I put a Tupperware bowl type thing in there floating and dump hydei in that and on the plants. Yes some drown, oh well.

The top is almost all glass, with some screened ventilation. These guys climb upside down with ease.

I do plan to modify this a bit just to fix some plumbing mistakes. I wish I tested it a little better but had more glass frogs coming and just needed to get my first batch out of the temp container. The tank functions and all, I just think I can do a little better. Of course after getting eggs, makes me hesitant on changing things. But their hasn't been too many groups of frogs that I made adjustments to the enclosure and they stopped breeding, so I think it will be ok.

The tads looked like they had development but I am not so sure if they are developing properly. Understory told me to expect this. Hopefully all is good though.
