I too have had luck with a benedicta tad that was floating by changing the water and keeping it clean. It would always float, but it was eating, as there was always poop in his cup. After keeping the water cleaner, he is back on the bottom.

Are any of you trying the blanched peas?
Blanched peas are of the age of blanched lettuce, a relatively long time ago... and ignores the fact that most of the dendrobatid tadpoles are classified as carnivorous omnivores (obligate egg feeders are carnivorous)... and as such aren't really an ideal food source for the tadpoles. American bulfrogs maybe.. dendrobatids not so much...

Just a quick update;
Our bigger one finally died. He could not kick his bout with bouyancy. Our smaller one is still doing fine, no floating, and is now larger than the first one was when it started having problems. We also just hatched another amelanistic. The difference in appearance is more obvious than I would have thought, right out of the egg. It helps having a normal tad from the same clutch to compare side by side.

We get an amelanistic green sirensis from time to time. Actually, probably either Leucistic or hypomelanistic. We can tell from the start. Easily within the first week. The tads are much paler than a normal tad.
