  1. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    My ranitomeya imitator FINALLY laid eggs! I was stoked!!!! but unfortunately, they were duds =( So i decided next time around, I'll let the parents, be parents. I wasn't checking for eggs aggressively. So last week, when I was feeding them, I checked my bromeliads, my small water bowl, and film...

  3. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    Hello - I've just had my R Variabilis 1.1.1 for about three months, and up until today they were a 1.0.2 set. About three weeks ago the male first started calling (so I knew one male), and then today I found these eggs (hence I know one female) - but I can't tell if the eggs have gone bad...
  4. General Discussion
    Hello, I am in the process of moving my Ranitomeya Variabilis from an old nemertean infested tank to a new tank. I am wondering if the frogs could have ingested nemertean eggs and if so if they would survive the digestive track of the frog. I currently have the frogs in quarantine and am...
  5. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    Hello Dendroboard I recently got into the Dart frog hobby about a year ago (but ive been keeping frogs for around 4 years now) and now i got six eggs from my Nicaraguan auratus pair! :D I'm aware of all protocol for caring for eggs and tads.
  6. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    My Bastimentos pair used to lay a couple of fertile clutches a week, raise 100s of tads, but froglets never emerged. Using the advice I received on the forum, I switched to Repashy..... 2 1/2 months later, two gorgeous healthy froglets (and a third froglet with thin front legs) emerged. It's...
  7. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    I've looked in the other threads about this and apparently the springs will only eat unfertilized eggs. Is this true for sure? I had a clutch that as best I can tell the male had fertilized and was hydrating. The hut is in a slightly difficult area, but I can shine a flashlight in there. I was...
  8. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    So I got my second lot of eggs a week or so ago However, I realised my terrarium was too wet so I decided to tear it down and add more false bottom to it. Checked the eggs a few days ago and looked bad but thought I would leave them in just in case, and I can see them developing now :). But the...
  9. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    I've done a bunch of reading about eggs and tads, but I'm still confused about a couple of things. 1. The Egg Care Sheet on this forum has a link to a discussion about water temperature, but I get a "not found" when I go there. This is my major concern. Even though I live in SoCal, it's often...
  10. General Health & Disease Treatment
    Just got my first clutch of eggs, in the debris and water in the petri dish were some long thin white worms. Are they normal or do I need to treat the tank/frogs? Tank has four golden terribs. Photo below (worm in bottom left) P.s. how many eggs do you think are fertile? Im thinking about 3

  14. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    Hi! I'm new to the dart frog game and was just wondering how long until they Start laying eggs? I have a male and female leucomelas and they love to stick together in their hidey holes. They are in a 12x24x12 terrarium with a good amount of live plants, hiding spots, and water pools. I've heard...

    Dear all, I am currently working with F. Andreone as a trainee (most of you might know him, I found some of his articles in this forum) in order to assess the effect of Mantella pet trade in Madagascar. For our model, we need reliable estimates of fecundity, life span and mortality rates but...
  16. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    Hey all, I've owned a pair of D. Tinc Suriname cobalts for a little over a year now. They just laid their first clutch and I'm stoked. However, I didn't really expect this and I'm not sure what to do next. Should I just leave the eggs alone? They're in a shallow water dish; however the water is...
  17. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    So i've searched the forums but couldnt find a straight answer. If i breed a pair of leucs, and their vivarium has a pool of water in it with a slope for easy transition in and out, can i leave the eggs in the viv?when they hatch, the male will take them to the water right? but i want to know if...
