Default ADF laying eggs

I've had 5 adf for a couple of months in which time they have grown well.... feeding them the other morning I could see lots of eggs floating and a male hooked onto a female ( this burden didnt affect her appetite ) and thought to see to them after work, however on returning I could only find 9 eggs, which are now floating in a small jar in the tank... I've bought micro banana worms in case they hatch,and any tips would be gratefully received

Daphnia, even baby daphnia will be too big for them , collect greenwater from a pond, the microorganisms in it will be fine. Try culturing infusoria, add a potatoe to pond water, collect the infusoria from the potatoe with a turkey baster

After they get big enough you can feed them pretty much any small insect larvae you can find outdoors.

At the filter stage I use pond water and New Life Spectrum Grow Fry Food. http://amzn.to/2ohALdG . The ingredients are great, it's a fine powder. I mix it with a little water and use a dropper to feed them. Then I work my way to the tiniest of organisms in the water, then on to larger and larger organisms I collect from pond water.

success! 7 froglets at 45 days old, after initial awkwardness feeding on fry fish food + small organisms in pond weed, (along with shrimps and hydra which fed on the tadpoles annoyingly) after a couple of weeks ate daphnia with great relish, have photo in album will try to post here
