They might need a break unless they began breeding not to long ago then dont worry about it It took my vittatus 7 bad clutches to have a clutch with four fertile eggs out of 15 Im on 11 now and five tadpoles with one in the egg. You should be fine. It takes time and be patcient good things cometo those who wait ;)

If they are young, and first year breeders, there will be some bad clutches. Also, I thought Pums were a 1.1 species, perhaps it is female egg stomping, or simple stress that is causing the eggs to either not be fertilized or go bad. Also, Supplements are only good for approximately 6 months. I would also suggest diversifying the diet. Sometimes a spike in available food prey options does good.

You can keep trios of pums, its the males that usually have issues. They will kill each other if things get bad enough. Although female aggression happens, I have not heard of many cases of death as a result. I currently have multiple trios producing w/out issue and I have had bigger groups than that in the past.

Be patient, sometimes it takes the parents a couple months to learn to properly care for the eggs. There is not much you can do other than ensure that the environmental factors are correct. Make sure tank humidity is appropriate, temp range 70-78f, and provide a nutritious and varied diet for the parents. Give them some time, wait and see.

after some months i have 2 babys of isla solarte but the cauchero eggs after 5 days of evolution always die ,i really don't understand why, can the cause be some genetical problem?

sometimes it takes a couple of m0onths until the parents take care of the eggs properly. How many times has this happened? How old are the frogs?

The frogs are from panama 2011 import , i haven't find any tadpole after the first with sls , because the clutch die after 4 or 5 days after fertilization, i think that i have find 30 deposition

Do the eggs actually look like little tadpoles, or developing tadpoles or do they just turn grey and disintegrate?

You can try a vitamin a supplement, I use Repashy vitamin a supplement once or twice per month. Some people have reported better, more viable clutches and better tadpole/froglet survival rates. That has been my experience too. I don't know if this will work, but it would be one of the things I would try if I was you...

The problem still might be that the parents aren't taking care of the eggs properly. It might also be a environmental factor, i.e. low humidity, low temps, a bug or worm destroying the eggs. I would wait another 2-3 months to decide, you have only had the frogs 6-12 months, so I think its too early to jump to any conclusions. I know that you are anxious to get them to breed but you probably need to be patient for a little longer.

You could also try to cycle them down by drying out the tank and feeding less, this will provide a dry cycle comparable to what they would go through in the wild. They will stop breeding, build up nutrients and get some rest. Then 2 months from now you can start misting heavily and they should begin breed again.

Here is a pretty good explanation:

Pashetti, how/why are you keeping the tad in a tuperware, how will the parents feed him? What will he eat?

Secondly, there are populations from the cauchero region that have a lot of varaibility including reds, oranges, blues, golds, and greens so I hear. That is one of the downfalls to non-site specific pumilio. Your 'cauchero' might be from a population with wide variability, and that would could explain your gold-crowned cauchero tad
