    Just wanted to share a couple photos of a few tank raised leuc froglets. There are currently 3 froglets in with my 2.1 group.

    I always see threads like "eggs, oh no!" or "eggs now what???" I say leave em! As long as a little forethought is used when designing your enclosure. For me this is the most rewarding part of the hobby! (and its a hell of alot less work) :)

    I know alot of yous have experienced the same and invite you to share any pics or pointers to your success.

    Very nice frogletts!! Now in my case, this is the secont time I had P. Terribilis eggs. By the second day, I had no choice but to pull them. They were very dry, barely any jello with the eggs. ( I know that is usually the sigh of the male did not fertelize the eggs yet, however I was lucky enough to witness the laying, and the fertelization as well....It was all over by the time I got the camera :( ) I pulled them and sprayed the eggs, now the jel is nice and full, as well as the eggs looking good. It could be that it is because this is only the second cluch for these frogs and they are inexperienced, but they do not take care of the eggs at all in the vivarium! That is why I pull.....

    Do you have a water source in you viv, Gabor?

    I've raised quite a few in tank now and it's the most rewarding experience you can have! If you can design you tank to have a small pond they will look after things themselves. I always have some tads swimming about in the front of the vivs. It really adds to the display! :)

    Yes I do have a watersource. My displays are similar to yours, the front has 2-3" of water. They just not interested in taking care of the eggs. I try again with the nwxt batch but since this happened twice already I'm not hopeful. Also the eggs are fertelized so they are large, swollen with water. Two days later it is shriveled up. Maybe the humidity in the tank is off or the fan is too strong.... Still a work in progress, but I never seen the male take care of the eggs eather.... So I pull them after two days. ( sorry to hijack the tread....)

    I have stopped pulling eggs for about 5 months now i think, it is probably the best choice i've ever made, like other people have said already, it is so much easier and more rewarding to watch. and my tincs really look like a little family. I find unless you are a serious breeder there is not reason to pull the tads. Production of frogs slows down quite a bit, but its 100% worth it.

    lol! It goes to show you that they can live with the parents and do well! We had 6 froglets in with 4 adult Alanis and 6 froglets in with 2 adult Powders, for months. And they said it couldn't be done...;)
