Do you know any scientific article about breeding Dendrobates?
you are already in the right spot. I've bred hundreds of Oophaga since 2005.
How many eggs a day do you give for the oophagas?you are already in the right spot. I've bred hundreds of Oophaga since 2005.
I have never understood why people remove oophaga tads. The parents know how many eggs to give their young.How many eggs a day do you give for the oophagas?
I have a problem and it is that when I feed them two eggs a day, most of them end up swollen (I stop feeding them and put them on melafix and they recover). But it scares me to only give one egg a day and they won't develop well.

Thanks for the infoThere is guy in NYC that is feeding numerous large Oophaga - histionica and sylvatica with great sucess for the reason you cited - greater production and captive breeding for commerce. i see to recall him saying only 1 egg per day for the tadpoles.
Zero?? wow... I know that some tadpoles can survive like 1 moth without eggs but they dont development at allFYI a know a couple people who have had apparently healthy, albeit smaller, Oophaga pumilio moph out with zero eggs fed by the parents, so I fully believe for the smaller guys, that is possible but not recommended.
O.sylvaticaWhat eggs are you feeding them? Large obligates really have low to no survivability when fed anything other than large obligate eggs. Some reported extended mortality using Auratus eggs.
