  1. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    Yesterday morning I saw two frogs acting differently (they were facing opposite directions and their bottoms were touching). About 5cm to the right I could see seven eggs in the leaf litter (right against the front glass- this was pure luck). I have a group of leucs so I thought I would pull...

    Says it all in the title not sure why the java moss is dying but just wondering if it need to go or if its okay to stay in there for the duration of his growth period.
  3. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    Hi, Ive had tads before but they hatched in the viv so iv never really seen a newly hatched tad. He has straightened out and has been trying to swim a little, he seemed to have a small amount of gel stuck on around his head so I gave him some help and carefully removed the gel. he can now swim...
  4. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    My room gets very cold at night, sometimes as low as 63F. I currently keep my tadpoles in a sterilite container with water and a heater that maintains the temperature at 73F. However, I am running out of room and need to find a better solution to house a lot of tads at one time while heating...

    I shall name it "Nemo" Does this look like a case of SLS? The froglet gets around fine and is a healthy eater, though it doesn't climb as well as its siblings.
  6. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    I recently had my fist Imitator tadpole hatch and was just confused on when to start feeding it? Its been one day and its now in the cup with an Indian Almond leaf. I have Tadpole bites and Spirulina powder from NEHerp. I Know you are suppose to wait a few days but I'm confused how many? Most...

    Hi everyone, I am quite new to the hobby... I have had darts before... 5 D. auratus (1 male, 3 female, 1 nobody could figure out), in a 75 gallon long tank. It went really well! For about 8 months that is... Than my male for some reason just died, than it all went down hill from there. Three...
  11. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    Just thought I'd post this pic of my Azureus Tadpole. He's been growing at the same rate as other tads from the same clutch. I do daily water changes and it continues to grow but unfortunately... so does the bubble. I'm hoping things change when he pops some legs.
  12. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    I have a tadpole that is 5 months old now. It only has very tiny back legs right now that seem awkwardly proportioned for the size of the tadpole and they don't seem to be growing that much (first noticed them about 2 weeks ago I think). I was wondering if this is normal or if there's something...
  13. 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...
  14. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    So I recently purchased a mystery tadpole from my local reptile show. It has been about 2 months now and it has almost completely absorbed its tail (I now know it is a leucomela also by the way). He seems to just be hanging out on the side of the morph chamber (out of the water) but doesnt seem...
  15. 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...

  19. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    So after 18 days in the egg the tadpoles hatched yesterday! I was sure they would hatch a few days earlier so me, being paranoid with my first clutch of eggs, brought them with me on my 8 hour trip to Georgia for Thanksgiving haha! My second clutch of 9 eggs has about 2 to 3 days before...
  20. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    After some unfertilized eggs got some development in D. Tinctorius eggs. The oldest clutch is about 3 weeks old but in Poison Frogs by Biology, Speciea & Captive Husbandry Lotters, Jungfer, Henkel & Schmidt / Chimaira are said to hatch 10-12 days. I see development but no movement in the eggs...
