hey guys, i am getting a pair of Bakhuis and will be here by next week. I looked at the caresheet threads but i dont see anything about Bakhuis. I know they are dwarf tincs but do they require the same temp and humidity as other tincs? currently i have humidity level of over 90% and temp of about 73 fahrenheit. maybe someone can give me their insight.

Thanks for the advise guys. lincolnrailers, what do you mean by prolific? :D

i heard that they are a subadult proven pair. sexed based on the appearance of the toepads. roughly about 6 months. may be able to breed during fall perhaps?

Bakhuis are gorgeous frogs, and it looks like you're on the right track. They can be kept like any other Tinc. Lincolnrailers means that they will breed and produce eggs often. Most Tincs breed fairly prolifically. IME my Azureus pair took a few months to get started, but now they produce almost weekly. I've had to seperate the two because now I have like 40 + tads :eek: Good luck!

what's even worse, selling them is kind of hard after watching them grow, so I've got 3 new tanks with my froglets growing out, and it is so much fun to watch when you put several froglets in a 30 gal tank. I'm thinking I might keep all 21 of my remaining blue/black auratus frogs........and now they started breeding again!

wow that's intense man! i hope mine turns out to be a true pair and hopefully breed ( maybe not that many ;) ) but it seems like total fun. how many froglets can you put in a 10 or 20 gal tank anyway? even now i seemed to be addicted in making the terrariums. i will post my terrarium in a few days time. and hopefully you guys can give some insight about it. :D

Yea, my oldest are popping their fronts this week! Its gonna be hard parting ways with most of them, BUT I do get to keep all of them for a few months :D I will have to keep at least 5-6 back for myself as well, maybe not 21 though lol Gotta keep some room open for new arrivals and such.

Hello OP welcome!I acquired my first Bakhuis from a vendor back in April ,they thought it most likely a female it was.Got my second (a male) in September, less than twenty-four hours later the first clutch of eggs I'm now sitting on a bunch of froglets, tadpoles and more eggs.Life is good!I agree with the advice of others ,you are on the right track!!
Good luck, Happy froggin !! Allyn

Bakhuis are a very nice small tinctorius, but (in my experience), they grow very slowly as froglets. Most tinctorius froglets can take wingless melanogasters ootw, but dwarf tinctorius morphs (including Oyapocks) generally need a good source of smaller food, such as springtails. I feed my establised froglets dusted melanogasters every day and they grow nicely with this method. They mature early, but I'm not sure it's best to breed them before they get a bit older.

Good luck with them! Richard.

All of the tinctorius morphs perform best in pairs.

i was wondering the same as not in how many but what is the size that i can keep ,y dwarfs in. I have oyapoks now and was thinking with them being dwarfs they should be fine in a 10gl but is that really the case?:confused:
