Question Re: Development B.orientalis

Hi All- I am a first time FBT owner and have tadpoles who have sprouted both sets of legs, but still have a long tail. At what point do I need to provide them with live food? They have been eating algae, algae wafers, fish flake and freeze dried shrimp. I had read that they don't eat much while they are re-absorbing their tail- as they get all the energy they need from their tail. Is that true? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!

XoŽ

Default Re: Development B.orientalis

When the tail is almost gone you can put them in a terrestrial setup. They eat a lot less when they are morphing indeed. I gave them pinheads, springtails and fruit flies (especially the magots) at first. Good luck raising them!

Hi
I actually read somewhere that, unlike most other froglets/toadlets, FBToadlets will eat even before they have fully absorbed their tail.

Thanks, guys- I am going to try feeding some flightless fruit flies tonight to see if they go for it.

It's my personal observation that they eat a lot less while absorbing their tail, but I've seen them catch prey still. I don't know if this is unique for the species.
