I've noticed that my female anthonyi has been producing mostly bad eggs recently, and I'm guessing she needs a break. She's been producing a clutch a week for quite some time now...

I moved her over to a planted 10g horizontal today but I'm curious if there's any type of stress to the male or the female because of their new isolation? Will they still be just as healthy as solo frogs for a while? Oh and one more question....how long should I keep her separated from him before I can put her back in with the male?

Thanks! :)

The frogs will be fine separated. I usually give my female a good 2 month rest if I'm able to catch her. If not I do a dry period mist once in a week type thing slows down on egg production pretty good. A few clutches do happen, but nothing like full blown egg production. Hope that helps

I've been using repcal and herptivite...rotating each daily. I'd like to get repashy, but I didn't know about that stuff when I got em and I wanted to wait till I at least used up some of the two I already paid for.

Herptivite and Rep-cal do not contain any preformed vitamin A or carotenoids other than beta carotene. It may take several months or longer for the female to store up enough nutrients to support reproduction again.
If you start supplementing with a supplement that contains several different carotenoids and/or preformed vitamin A then the female will recover more quickly.

Thanks Ed.

What supplement would you recommend?

It depends on how involved you want your feeding system to be.. if you just want to keep the supplement you use down to one or two then you can keep using Rep-Cal and Herpetivite and just add either Repashy ICB or Superpig to the rotation. If you are willing to add a couple more supplements to the rotation, you can try Dendrocare, Herpetal and/or Nekton Preen.

A number of the older supplements when analyzed by a third party showed a lot of variation between what was listed on the lable both between batches and between brands. This is because they are not regulated in a manner that each batch has to meet the listings on the label. As a result manner people rotate several different supplements through thier feeding schedules to try and avoid any lack in one supplement or another.

The newer supplements like the Dendrocare or Repashy products have not been evaluated by a third party as of yet.

Thanks for the tips and the recommendations. I'll have to make an order shortly! I think I'll leave them separated for a few months regardless...I've got one clutch OOW now and another couple close behind, so I'll have my hands full enough!
