My frogs surprised me with a huge bunch of eggs. Do I remove them or leave them there? If I remove them, what must be done? Appreciate any help and advice.

Thanks

I'd remove them so they don't get disturbed. You could set up a tank with shallow water and add the stick(out of the water) so when they hatch the tads fall into the water. I'm sure someone who knows more will help you.

The evolution of the eggs lasts for 8-10 days (estimate). They last as tadpoles for 56-70 days (estimate).

Congrats, I'd leave them be and let them develop in situ.

Oh cool I thought everyone always removed them so that the frogs wouldn't bump into them or anything.
But I believe you Andrew

thats what I thought too. unless it is those darts frogs that the parents take care of the tads then you leave the egg in. but others you take them out to incubate and such!

If the Asperum are anything like Theloderma Corticale, you could either leave them or pull them, it is up to you. Be sure and keep them moist or they will go bad on you. I suggest covering the top with plastic and misting at least once a day. I just acquired a couple of asperum a few weeks ago and hope to be breeding them in the future (if I have a male/female that is). May I ask what conditions you keep them in in order to get them to breed? (temp, humidity, setup, etc.) Congrats!!

I wouldn't remove the adults, if they are happy and breeding leave them, they won't disturb the eggs.

Thanks guys for all the tips, appreciate it loads. Andrew you've bred them before right?
I have a bunch of frogs in a tank and they breed on their own, without any external stimulus. Maybe that's coz I'm located in Malaysia, so ambient humidity and temps are already conducive.
I think humidity should be around 80% at the very minimum. I used moss for the substrate which I collect from our local waterfalls. This local moss, that resembles miniature creepers, grows on boulders and rocks in fast running streams. There are of course branches (driftwood from streams again) and a large container of water for them to play in.

lulu, sorry I'm in Malaysia, but if you have an importer that can meet my terms then you can get him to contact me. Rick, I have some nice hunting grounds over here where I get asperum, along with other frog species.



Cheers

Is it hard for you to get things like red eyes or other south/north american species out there?

Not really, we do get stuff like dendrobates, red tree frogs and other usual stuff from time to time.

WHat makes you say that? I seriously doubt the parents would eat the tads.

how do I contact you hans? through your e-mail?

I dont think the T. asperum does cuz the Vietnamese mossy frogs are not canibalistic to their babies or their own kind and arent the mossy frogs and the bird poop frog (T. asperum) similar?. but some other frogs does eat there own and/or each other!

i've left corticale eggs in with the adults before...sometimes it's worked fine, but other times i've had the adults trample or knock the eggs into the water thereby halting embryo development. removing the adults for 5 days won't hurt them...

I've had the same results with Corticale frogfan. Most of the time I'd say they would be okay, but why take the risk? I would probably remove them.
