Default Glass Frog success

Found this tonight in my valerioi tank wile feeding them. Funny since I was about to move them into a rain chamber, but they beat me to it. It looks like this mass has been around for a little wile to since I can already see the embryos moving around.

I've only gotten a significant amount of call for me thus far. I'd be interested in knowing the amount of ventilation you're using as well as your misting and feeding routine.

Here are some pictures of their enclosure, a 30 gal vert.




Here is a slightly better picture of the egg mass


As far as my misting routine, they are on the same misting system as all of my tanks which mists 4 times a day (once in the morning, afternoon, late evening and late night/early morning) with each session lasting between 1-3 mins. They are being fed mostly on hydei along with crickets occasionally. Now I have to scramble and get the tadpole system setup in time for these guys.

Thanks for the complements everyone! Just so you all know before I get more PM's about it, I don't plan on starting a wait list on these for some time. Since this is my first clutch and considering Glass Frog tadpoles can take anywhere from 3 months to a year to develop it will be some time, and a lot of trial and error before I would feel comfortable taking names down (but Jeremy you are more then welcome to some of the tadpoles once they emerge and you are back on your feet).

Awesome! Did you notice a rain storm or pressure drop right before they laid?

I have notice increased breeding in my treefrogs, and increased calling in my darts when a storm is approaching.

good luck man. I have a video somewhere of Brian showing and talking about how he raises his. Or just email him. From what I understand it may take a while but otherwise is pretty straightforward.

What is the adult behavior like? ie are they reclusive, do they use most of tank, are they out in the day, and what is their call like? Sorry for the barrage, but I can't find any existing species info or caresheets due to their rarity.

Do you hear a lot of calling? My three females are huge and I believe I have two males, but not a chirp.

Ray, I've not a clue if I have any females, but I hear incessant calling every night without fail. It's almost infuriating if I can't get to sleep sometimes....

I'd trade a male for a definite female... if I knew for sure all of them were males. I hear two callers (they sound slightly different from each other) but the second I shine a light or get my face up close they shut up. If I track one down I'll let you know.

Yeah I've been following this thread looking for updates on how they are doing too. I'm considering getting some in the future, but breeding and tadpole rearing seems to have little information out there... so please let us know how they do!
Thanks,

Hey guys, sorry for the lack of updates, it's been a hectic couple months. I would say I have anywhere from 20-40 tadpoles currently. The majority of them are housed in a 10 gallon tank that is 3/4 full of water. It has a turface substrate, and some larger smooth rocks for algae growth and feeding. There is dense floating growth of Najas guadalupensis (naja or guppy grass), as well as some duckweed and java moss in the tank. I also have a spong filter in place but barely run it as the plants have been keeping the water quite clean. The reason I am so unsure of the actual number of tadpoles in the tank is that they are quite small (thumb nail tad size with a longer tail) and are quite pail/colorless/patternless. They spend the majority of their time rooting around in the substrate and will also burrow under the rocks. These things make it very difficult for any kind of census on the tank but when I look in I usually see a good handful actively swimming or grazing on algae on the tank walls and if I look closely I see quite a lot in the substrate. I also have two that I have been keeping on my desk in a large mason jar also with some Naja grass. I have been doing 1/3 water changes with RO water about once a week and feeding them mostly veggie based flake food. I will post some pictures of the tank and tadpoles in a few days when I get my camera back.

Hey guys, Colin (formerly ghettopieninja) here, after years of my silly old username I decided to retire it and make a new one. Here is a quick picture I took of the 10 gallon tadpole setup, my current camera isn't good enough to capture any decent pictures of the tads but I will see if any of my photographer friends will lend me a better camera for this purpose when I have the time.


and one of the parents...

Very cool! About how old are these tads? Are you seeing any development of them or are they really as slow to develop as was originally believed?

The older tads are about five months and the younger (the majority of them), are about three months. I have notice growth, especially in the older ones, but it appears that they will be taking quite a wile (anywhere from 6 months to over a year from what I have read).

Not as of now but the females are again fat with eggs and the male has recently begun calling again so I have upped their supplements.

For those who haven't seen the photos I posted in my other thread, here are some updated pictures of the adult's tank:
