Rep: discoverlight is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Any tips on frog eggs?

I went downstairs this afternoon to see my 2 African dwarf frogs mating and I was wondering what the proper care for eggs and tadpoles are. I've never had any of my animals breed so this is a surprise for me. any information and tips would be useful, thank you! :)

I would suggest asking Ian (xxxianxxx). He seems to know a lot on these animals.

My adf have layed a few times but I have only raised them successfully once, I hatched a couple hundred TADS but only raised 11 frogs. Most of the tads died off shortly after hatching, think they starved, they need very small livefood. Pull the adults from the tank with the eggs, try not to disturb the eggs floating on the surface, apparently if they sink it lowers the hatching rate. Fill the tank with daphnia/moina, the tads are too small to eat the adults, even the babies are big compared to them. Research infusoria and use that as well. Sorry I can't help further, not many people raise these frogs and info is sketchy.
