What am i to do with all these offspring? I believe everyone that wants these specific frogs has them locally.

a lot of threads on large production lately. Coupled with a slow hobby downturn, so-so economy and warm summer vacation weather = hard to sell common frogs.

Think about separating them, and wholesaling some of the excess.

Honestly, I dont feel the need to make money. I really like the idea of donating frogs to younger hobbyists to help keep them interested in the hobby. I have already traded one young man a tank with frogs for a whole hog......cant wait to get that and cooooook it.

Zach how about not pulling them, should slow them down a bit.

Ditto, what beth said. Don't pull eggs and keep film cans in the tank 50-60% full of water. Imis will feed the tadpoles w eggs that might otherwise get fertilized and further exacerbate your problem.

Take out the Broms and Film cans - is an option to slow them down, then.
