Hi

Had the luck to find eggs of this species today .

Now I am curious, what I have to expect.

How long will it last, since the tadpoles hatch?
How long is development to little frog?
How long is development to adult?

Does anyone know?
Is anything special with these ones?

Pics? This species is a very cool one, wish they were more readily available. I would assume the care would be like that of other hyperolius but you know what happens when you assume...

I will look in treefrogs of africa and see if it says anything. In the mean time, let's see them...

Hi Derek,

Thank you for recognizing my questions! Hoped, that you know ...

Now - There are some difference to other Hyperolius. The eggs where in the water, are bigger and the development much faster.

"Treefrogs of Africa" does not tell about eggs and tadpoles . -

moment - I upload some photos ...

Very nice pictures. I noticed there is not any egg/tad info in the book as I was flipping through.

If I were you, I would just keep them as the parents laid them, they are developing just fine and most of the time, the parents lay the eggs where they should be. You will be able to tell which (if any) die and hopefully why, submerged, air exposure, etc.

Good luck!

Very nice, the eggs should hatch in about 5 days, looks like they are developing well, the tadpoles should start to morph at just over a month and then froglets should be adult by 9 months. Good luck with them.

Thank you very much

This night I saw the first tadpoles moving a little.

@Derek,
The parents laid them submerged. And it looks like, that it was the right way.

These Reed frogs are absolutely beautiful. They come in so many patterns or is it they different species? The eggs look so nice in there. Congrats!

@Busch83
Just don't raise more, than you know what to do with them .

@Jawsofafrog
The males are green with this stripes und the females are black/darkbrown with these white/yellow pattern. These pattern may be different like thumbprints - but a thumbprint is a thumprint ...

My experience - so far ..

The tadpoles hatched beginning on day 4 to day ~10, The most on day 5-6.
But it took a good week until the gills went inside and the intestinal was built.
Hmmm - Think, it will take longer then 5 weeks until they are morphed - but we will see .

About 115 tadpoles hatched. I had 2 lost the first days and found one balloon-ill this night. Think, this one will be gone soon ... .

22-24C / 72-75F
My frog room is about 24-25C. Thus, I don't use any water heating. Should I do so?

On some days I put the box under a 40W-spot - sunny day - but did not measure temperature. But I did not recognize that the tadpoles are searching the warm region.

24C should be about right, it wouldn't hurt to take it up a degree or 2 if you wanted to.

Thank you for help!

I looked this afternoon. During day it is a little bit warmer - 24-25C. Under the lamp the water gets up to 27C.

The tadpoles are growing and all seems to go right

Some photos from today.
