Todays been a little slow on the forum so I figured I would share my new T. pictum paludarium.

The background is black window film (on the back) The land is a box made of egg crate (expensive light defuser) wrapped in fine mesh window screen with holes cut out for 5" net pots. The pots are filled with pea pebbles.

I also made a drip tube out of irrigation line, there are holes punched along the bottom. It is being fed by a EcoPlus66 pump (very good, cheap pump, I like them)

The drip line (it's job is to increase humidly and keep the water from getting stagnant) \/

Here's the completed paludarium with the frogs, There are 11 juveniles + my 3 adults.
Leaf litter is a wide mix of Magnolia species (I have an unlimited supply at my college). Plants are 3 birds nest ferns, one is something that looks like a Dracaena but is really in the same family as Tradescantias (I should of wrote it down when the seller told me)
also some Peperomia on a wood flat (could give you a species but then I would have to flip it over and look at the back... be reasonable!)

4 eggs made it. One was unfertilized the other died after 4 days.

I have them in a 1 gallon tub right now (Ignore the other right tub its for if my T. stellatum pair finally give me some eggs, soon I'm gonna try things like playing flooding the tub or resort to getting a chiller or playing smooth jazz type music) the tadpoles are grazing on powdered algae, when they get bigger I will try adding some soylent green.

Update.

Here's a picture of one of at least 3 tadpoles growing in the water section \/

Despite being younger than the tadpoles in my rearing bin they are still slightly larger, this reinforces my suspicions that a diet of strictly algae powders is not ideal. I will try adding Repashy Solient Green to the diet of the ones not living insitu and see if that improves their growth rate.

The T. pictum tadpole on top is one that was being raised on algae powders like in this article > https://reptilesmagazine.com/breeding-the-cinnamon-frog/ the tadpole below it is the same age and came from the water in my paludarium. Safe to say whatever the latter is eating is superior and as such I have decided to move my 4 algae powder tads into the paludarium.
