In case anybody is wondering, I took a little bit of substrate from the parents tank, seems to be holding springtails really well. Saw one of the first toadlets eating some of the springtails keeping my fingers crossed. Have about 30 out of the water so far. Many more still in most have at least their back legs only 2 seem to be stuck in that no development stage.

I will be excited when they develop their colors. I have seen adults on this forum and they are very unique and beautiful. I never seen this species before by the way untill this year.

You get a pretty good idea just how tiny these guys are when you realize their size relative to the food they're hunting. I really enjoyed the video.
Thanks again for all the fascinating threads.

Snapped a pic of my oldest toadlets, still have ~30 in the water, usually morph out around 5 a day or so. My oldest ones are starting to get a little color to them.

great job. looks like you figured out the tadpole stage. how many adults do you have and what sex ratio?

12 adults, probably 5.7. I'm quite surprised that I did not lose any tadpoles or if I did the numbers were insignificant to notice. I have lost 4 toadlets but they were tiny and lethargic out of the water. Hopefully luck continues, they are eating me out of house and home right now though. I have 6 of the shoebox size sterilite containers and they can't keep up with 60 toadlets. Hopefully they will be on fruit-flies by the time the others leave the water.

Congrats to you. Your work may help prevent these from disapearing from
the hobby, as they have in the past, when exports cease.

I agree. You are saving the species.

I knew I should have picked one of these toads up when I had the chance! I'm intrigued because like you, I too am rearing tadpoles (granted they're Bombina orientalis) and I believe they're about to start back leg development. It's been about 10 days for mine ^^ Though it was probably a good thing I didn't pick up a bumblebee toad because I'm going to have 40+ fire belly toads of my own lol. I've raised tadpoles before that I got from a local pond and released, but when it's your frogs who're spawning it's a whole new experience! Good luck to ya!
