I have tried a few things with my yellow basleri - leaving them in the tank and taking them out....
it seems whenever I take the tads out of the tank and don’t let the parents take them to a water source they do horrible and die.
when I put the tads in a single deli cup - they just kind of slowly die, they get big but only grow to about half size and then slowly die off.
...
I don’t want to leave them in the tank because I can’t control there surrounding. but they do tend to grow out better.

Anyone with basleri tads, how had you had success?.

I recently just put in a clutch of 20 in a 5 1/2 gallon loaded with leaves and pothos. hopefully this will simulate the conditions of the tank and I can control the environment that they are in.

I raise about 10 bassleri tads in a large bin (190oz plus) with frequent water changes and layers of leaf litter.

Do you have INIBICO yellow bassleri or the pepperi brought in by SNDF and UE under the same name?

i got my frogs from the line that sean stewart brought in about 2 or 3 yrs ago.
Actually, Sean didn't bring them in. Marcus Breece of SNDF brought the parents of Mike's frogs in from Peru in Apr08. Still, quite the lookers...
If anyone likes what they see here, come to Frogday in two weeks as I'll have a number of these yellow bassleri up to adult size available [shameless plug].

Ah, gorgeous frogs, though not bassleri. If they came in through Marcus they are the A. Pepperi 'Absieo' from Understory. Beautiful nonetheless.

For the record, Sean Stewart did a european import that brought in a at least two varieties of bassleri that may now be considered pepperi or what have you. It was the same importation that brought in all those european lines of frogs that he has. I don't know if they were understory or inibico in origin just that they were from european parents. I have a group of what was then red-headed bassleri, but may now be considered pepperi. So, this may be what you are referring to.
