Default Hyperolius hieroglyphicus

I recently was given a breeding group of Hyperolius hieroglyphicus. These are stunning treefrogs and seem to be breeding well. They came to me in a 20 gal tall tank with 4-5" of water. A piece of driftwood and Pothos make up any land portion. I have kept them like this because there are multiple clutches of tadpoles in the water, so the set up seems to be working. Today I found the first froglets ootw. Does anyone else work with these? Any suggestions on rearing the young or inducing breeding again would be a help. Here are some crappy iPhone pics but you can see the dimorphism between sexes. First is the female, then male then young

Wow I didn't know these were in the states. You are quite lucky.

Very nice! I'd imagine they're very similar to the other reeds we work with. Give me a call sometime when I'm at work, and we chat about how we breed and raise them. They're some of the most prolific frogs I've ever worked with.

I have a trio of these (2.1) that I have had for almost a year now. I haven't tried to cycle them yet (with a rainy season), but I have still heard some calling (no eggs). I couldn't find a lot of information specific to this species so I have been treating them like a typical reed frog. I have also been housing mine in a 20XH, but I am in the process of moving them to a 55 so I can make a better water feature for breeding and a temperature gradient/basking spot (they really seem to appreciate a warm basking area - the warmest spot in the tank can get close to 90 degrees!). Currently they only have a small water feature, some logs, and an over-abundance of pothos. The other thing that I should mention is that they are voracious eaters - they'll eat anything that moves!

I'd love to expand my population if you are able to raise the tads. Please keep me in mind if you get to a point where you are able to get rid of some.

Let me know if you have any specific questions about how I keep them.

I haven't had any breeding with mine. I have seen that there are more in the hobby these days so hopefully they will become more readily available.

Due to some personal stuff, I needed to part with mine. A good friend took them and I am sure he will have luck with them.

Been a while since this post has been visited. Colin are you still producing offspring? I am still very interested in this species and genus really and I hope these are growing in number.

I believe Rana Verde Ecosystems is working with this species, so hopefully they will become more available soon. This is a really neat reed frog and I would like to see more of them around, too.

Glad to hear it. Checked out their page and it has a nice little article on these frogs. I might have to shoot them an inquiry.
