This is a discussion on fire belly toad baby within the Fire Belly Toads (Bombina) forums, part of the Frogs & Toads category; Is this not cute. Still has its tail. Will be getting some fruit flies this weekend. [ATTACH=CONFIG]30532[/ATTACH One swimming...
lost 3 little guys overnight. Down to around 20 or so now. Did a water change and bought some fruit flies though they still have their tails. ordered springtails, hopefully they should be here within the next few days. I hope at least a couple survive. it would be so disheartening if I lost them all after all the hard work. I can only wait and see. They look so cute hopping on the land!
here is a video-
You can use algae disks soaked in a small dish too. They have them in the fish food section.
Oh my goodness, they are so cute!
You could try putting them in a small container for feeding. It may be they are not good hunters yet. I imagine they eat small larvae in the water, at this age, when in the wild.
I hope they make it for you! Great job so far .
i thought they would not eat until they aborbed their tails. I have some algae wafers. I will try them.
They should start soon. Not long til their tails are gone . They will eat the algae as tadpoles. I am uncertain for how much longer. Usually they'll eat it when still in the water. If you put it in their pond I'd only put little pieces or it will cloud up the water.
I decided to move the last 11 surviving toadlets into a smaller ktitter keeper. Hopefully they will start to eat, since it is about 1/3 thee size of their 10 gallon.
hey i was wondering what you would do with the baby toads? keep them all or give them away?
I want to be able to breed my toads yet wouldnt be able to keep all of them as i dont have the room.
They can also eat boiled romaine lettuce
Ribbity- I am going to keep 5 or 6 of them and rehome the others. From about 50 tadpoles I have 11 toadlets and 2 that only have their hind legs left. I lost alot when they were tadpoles and 6 since they have grown all their legs. Raising them to toads is alot of work. This the first year mine have ever laid eggs, so I am learning as I go.
Wow they have gotten so big and stupid cute!!! Good job mom!
wish the little guys grow up healthily
My babies are 4 weeks old today. all but 2 have absorbed all but a stub of their tails. None are eating yet. I have tried fruit flies and springtails so far. I have pinhead crickets coming in the morning.I will feel so much better when the little cuties start eating. I have not lost any since moving them into a smaller tank with wet paper towels. They are all doing great.
The 9 little ones are 6 weeks old today. They are eating like pigs and getting bigger every day. I will try to get a pic tomorrow. I am going through about 1500 crickets a week.
