I was wondering what do you use to clean out you're tanks cause I got tree frogs recently from a friend but I think the tank needs to be cleaned but I don't want to use something like bleach and have it hurt them. Any help would be wonderful x.x

Betadine would be best.

clean the whole tank with straight betadine and then hose it down or rinse it to get rid of the the betadine from the tank.

Hopefully i'll have some of them in the next few months! Nearly all of them have their back legs so around how long should it take now? It will depend on water temp won't it so I may put a water heater in (If I can find it in our shed!).

I've estimated that I have around 50 more tadpole's with leg's and arms but i'll take a pic and count because they move to much!

By the way, the darker coloured ones are from the other spawn. Not many of them survived for some reason but those ones did, cannibilism became aparent about a month after they hatched unfortunatley so that may have been the cause :(

Wow very nice brown tree froglets! I am having loads of trouble with my morphs when it comes to them moving from the water to land.. I move them from one tank to another and this seems to be a problem! If you put a rock pushing out of the water do they instictivly go onto it when they r ready? Cause we i first ever got SBTF tadpoles when my first morphling was ready to come out it just didnt go onto the wood and ended up passing away by drowning in the night. :( What method do you use? Send me a pm with the info thx :D

But anyways very nice bright GTF there :) He/She looks very cute !

i love my little SBTF frogs their tiny still and i like the way they jump through the plants and stuff to get their food from plants of the ground. i just want the same baby frogs all year round.
