I've been breeding Blue back reed frogs, Heterixalus madagascariensis, for a bit now. I currently have a couple hundred tadpoles in the water.

I have some listed in the classifieds Justin. They're great frogs, really easy to breed and even though they're nocturnal they are often active during the daytime, and they always come out to eat.

Hello Zack,

Do you have any pictures of what your offsprings generally look like? I may be interested in purchasing a few when your juvies become available? What do they cost?

Thanks! qfrog

yeah, I'd like to see pictures too. And what do you have them eating? And do they need a rain chamber to breed?

Thanks in advance

Brian

Babies will eat fruit flies, adults will eat them too but do better on crickets or a mix of both. They're not picky eaters.

Hi Emily,

I'm sorry to say, but that's what my dog looks like when its taking a dump! Do they always look so constipated?

Sorry, I just had to. Really a sweet frog. No, really.

Take care, Richard.

I have been keeping hyperolius argus for awhile and have just recently really started working on breeding my group. So far, without success. If anyone has any suggestions on this species or knows where I can acquire a few more, please let me know.

Hyperolius argus have been known to be one of the reed species that breed on lilly pads instead of the traditional leaf folding species. I have seen people use both live and fake lillies to accomplish this. Just a thought in case you are doing something different.
