got 20 developing and the leader just popped the front legs this morning...how soon until i should move him to the morph-out tub? also, once they hop around there is no need to keep them in the morph-out tank, correct?

anything that can go wrong i should watch out for?

thanks...tommy

if they are in individual cups, once the front legs pop, I dump the water so there's only a half inch in it or so, and tilt the cup (prop one side up with something) so that the water pools at one end and the other side is nearly dry. In about a week the tail will be gone. Once the tail is gone, that's when I move them to a small container with sphagnum, leaf litter, and plant clippings. Since they are tincs, they can take melanos as soon as they morph......

20 tads...how sweet! grats on that:D I've got only 6 azureus tads two of which just got rear legs in the last day or two. I second linconrailers advice as it the same as I do with my trib tads, & have been rewarded with froglets. Can't wait till my azureus tads are as far as yours, to see tads come out of the water & start to gradually get their color is a really satisfying:D

Yes definitely drop the water down and tilt it so they have an area that is dry if they need easy access to climb out at this stage. Also, keep a loose fitting lid of some sort on because they will start to climb the sides in the next few days and I've had them climb out the top surprisingly early. Once the tail gets absorbed, they will probably be out of the water/climbing more, and can be transferred to a simple morph out tank with sphagnum moss, leaf litter, springtails, and a small plant clipping. Once they are eating fruit flies readily, I transfer them into a more typical grow-out style tank.
