Can anyone help me? I have ADF's (3 females and a male). I used to have 4 females and several months ago, one died. I replaced it intentionally with a male because I had heard that they "sing" and I thought it would be interesting to see what happened, even though all the research I've done indicates it's almost impossible to raise ADFs because the frogs or their tankmates will eat the eggs.
For a few months I would sometimes notice frog eggs in the tank. This week, however, my kids noticed tadpoles. I thought it was wishful thinking on their part, but sure enough... tadpoles. Now what do I do??
I have 8 cardinal tetras in addition to the frogs in my 20g. (used to have a betta but he died awhile back. Hmm... maybe that's why I'm now seeing tadpoles?). I bought a cheap net breeder in which I was able to isolate 3 of the tadpoles (all I could find) and I put some of the plants (plastic) which I've seen them clinging to, in as well. There is at least one frog egg on one of the plants too.
Conditions must be fair enough so far for them to come this far. Will separating them from the mouths in the tank be enough until they get bigger? Will they find food? I feed the tetras flakes and the ADFs tadpole pellets. Occasionally I put some blood worms in.
If anyone has any experience to share or advice to give, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!!
