Need help with Ryan's asap!!!!

Postby Mparrish74 » Wed Jun 18, 2014 9:36 pm

I have a pair or Ryan's who laid eggs on a fig leaf. The eggs have hatched and are sliding off the leaf. There are living tads just hanging out. Is there anything i can do to move them or do i have to let dad take care of it?

Are you concerned about the tadpoles sliding off the leaf ? I've literally used a small spoon to place them back on a leaf. Make sure the tank has good humidity.

Obligate egg feeders are deadbeat dads, the female do all the work.
Darts with parasites are analogous to mixed tanks, there are no known benefits to the frogs with either.


If tone is more important to you than content, you are at the wrong place.
