    Default RETF Froglet Help

    I am in the process of breeding my red eyed tree frogs and was hoping someone could provide me with some advice.


    My adults are healthy and produce plenty of eggs, the tadpoles do great grow legs and climb out of the water just fine to absorb their tails. Unfortunately about a month later the froglets are dying. I am feeding them fruit flys, have them on paper towels and spagnum moss, spray them 2x daily and provide distilled water in a bowl that I change daily. The air temp is about 76 degrees. I am at a loss as to how to keep them healthy, and I have a lot of tadpoles left. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank You!

    It might be due to using distilled water. It lacks the natural minerals needed. My understanding is that it is heather to use regular water that has been dechlorinated.
