It's been about 53 days since this Varadero hatched. He just started getting those stumpy sides and I've started seeing the arms forming inside his body when using a bright light. Any idea when I should drop him in the shallow water?

Ive left my containers for tads at what I call normal levels (depending on the cup size 1-2inchs) until all the legs have popped then lower the water level and tilt the cup, Ive not lost a tad yet

I move my metamorphs to containers with a bit of Spaghnum moss that rises out of the water. The froglet then gets to decide when it emerges. I would say you are about a week for front limbs and another week or so for the tail to be absorbed.

Good luck with him/her, Richard.

I put the container in a tank at an angle and added a pile of java moss for him to climb on. He already climbed up the edge of the container to see what life is like out of the water!

You can't see it here but his tail is getting absorbed fast.

Thanks guys. Here he is face first:



I'm just on the edge of my seat waiting for the other two!

I think I need to move my two 1.1 back into separate 15 gallon tanks. I put them all together into a 60 gallon. Since then the females have laid eggs, but the males don't seem to fertilize them.
