I was curious if anyone else mimics the weather patterns that frogs would normally expect in there natural habitat.

I only ask because my thought is that the barometrics might confuse the frogs. If you simulated it raining when infact it was a really nice day outside, due to the fact that they are intuned to that kind of stuff in the wild for mating purposes. Wouldn't you increase your chances of having sucessfull drops if you stimulated the weather according to the barometric pressure that was actually happening?

Just curious what others might have to say aboit this.

If I want them to breed, I will feed heavy (prior) and mist a lot just before pressure begins to drop and during the drop.

Many have noticed increased breeding during the rainy season. I'm all for increasing the misting a bit, during a rainy week outside. Nothing like a couple weeks of spring showers to start all the males calling.
Obviously, our frogs cannot see what is going on outside. As such, I can only imagine that it is the barometric pressure that is setting the mood.
