tadpole care

  1. Tree frogs
    Hi folks, Just brought a Hyla Arenicolor (Canyon Treefrog) tadpole home and put him in a fish bowl (a repurposed iced tea pitcher). I have a bed of river rocks and have filled the pitcher halfway with spring water, so about 1/2 gallon. For food I've been feeding him boiled broccoli that's...
  2. General Discussion
    So, I bought 4 Ranitomeya Imitator 'Varaderos' from Understory Enterprises back in October. Come January I saw a male frog carrying a tadpole to a bromeliad (yay). I decided I wanted to let the frogs take care of their young, although I did add a tadpole bite once their back legs popped to round...
  3. Epipedobates
    My green 3 stripe peruvians have finally started cranking out big clutches of mostly viable eggs (I thought I was gonna have to show the male some froggy porn to get him educated on how this breeding thing works for awhile, took him a long time to catch on). But once I got some tads going well...
  4. Ranitomeya
    Will these frogs lay eggs on the side the terrarium? like on the glass?
  5. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    I'm looking for a little Pumilio advice here. My El Dorados have been producing eggs like crazy this season. However, I've never gotten a hopper from them. The tads develop and the adult moves them to film canisters. I had one that developed rear legs and it seemed like his front legs were close...
  6. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    My auratuses started breeding recently and I ended up with three tadpoles. I'm not looking to breed so I'm not doing very much with them. Occasionally I'll change the water and feed them some fish flakes but generally I let the mom and dad take care of the babies. This morning one tad was...
  7. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    Hey everyone I have a quick question about phyllobates vittatus breeding. I am pretty sure that soon I will receive a group of between 8-12 vittatus' to keep as a group in a 90 gallon corner bow front. With a group this size I am pretty sure I would have to be extremely unlucky to not get a...
  8. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    Hello everyone, so heres my problem... I just received two R. Lamasi green and had them breeding with developing eggs in the first week. My plan was to keep them in the terrarium so the male and female could care for the tads, unfortunately on saturday my female escaped somehow from the...
  9. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    YIKES! So I had a crisis today - my daughter found one of my leucomelas frogs on the floor. I have NO CLUE how it got out, but yesterday I found fruit flies on the floor of the room I keep them in, so at some point I had to have left the cage door open. My vivarium setup is a 24 x 18 x 18...
