    Default Rhacophorus reinwardtii

    Well, the Rhacophorus reinwardtii have been in the rain chamber for almost a week now. Not a peep the first day or two. Then the past two or three days there has been some calling, but no eggs yet. I am hopeful, because when I got up this morning, one of the males and the female were in amplexus. Still no eggs, but hopefull. A little while ago, I heard some calling and went to investigate. The male is off of the female, he had been there all day, and is now running around the tank. She is still asleep, but I got a real good look at her and she looks fat! So I am guessing that there are eggs in her. So hopefully tomorrow, there will be eggs. I sure hope so.

    Could you post some pictures of the frogs and the rain chamber please. I have some Owonake Flying frogs that I think are Rhacophorus reinwardtii and I need to know what species they are.

    Good luck with them, we need more captive bred Rhacs in the hobby.

    Good luck, maybe if you played them some "mood music" it would help them find their groove!LOL Sorry, I couldn't help myself! ; )

    Nothing yet, except losing a little bit of sleep from the noise. They are no longer in amplexus and I had a closer look at the female, I have noticed her nose is a bit roughed up. I hope that is not effecting any progress.

    Fingers crossed that they breed for you. I really like these frogs. Lots of character.

    Watch out for keeping them in to long,
    the roughed up nose can be a sign they are being to wet over a long time.
    Also had them in amplexus in the rainchamber, but no eggs seen.
    The female died shortly after and also had some marks on her from the humidity.

    Hopefully you manage to breed them, i realy like to steal you're method then

    At the risk of sounding stupid..Why do their noses get like that?
    Has there been any news?

    Some frogs will rub themselves raw against the walls or top of a terrarium while attempting to escape.

    Yes, bumping into the glass is one cause.
    But in a extreme wet or dry environement they are sensitive for developing some wounds due to the drie or wet atmosphere.

    Just like humans that have dry skin that can become sore, or fungues that develop due to moist conditions like athletefeet or diaper rash.
    Frogs have that as well, for most tree frogs that need a great contrast in seasons i witnessed this as well.
    For my reinwardtii that developed this, it was clearly caused by keeping them in the rainchamber for an extended period of time.

    For my tree frogs, when i put them in a rainchamber i give them 3-4 days,
    if they didn't do anything i put them dryer again and start over.
    In my experience, if they haven't proceeded with the amplexus after 3 days it won't work out that time.

    Yeah, I think it is time to give up and pull them out.

    Hey Kurt,

    In my experience and a couple other breeders as well, it took 4-5 weeks in the rainchamber before the feamle laid the eggs.. But if she is really bad with the nose, probably would be a good idea to pull her out.. Hope you do get them to go..

    That is a realy long time, never kept them for those amounts of time in the rainchambre.
    Which species was it that took so long to lay off their eggs?
    And did they amplex for the complete extend of time?

    Mostly i put my frogs in when i think they are ready for it,
    they've been somewhat wetter then usual then but not as wet as in the rainchambre.
    I noticed that if they are in amplexus they will lay eggs within a week or not at all,
    but that is my experience, never kept them in for longer then 2-3 weeks.
    They also tend to develop some irritated/damaged skin when i keep them in the rainchambre for extended periods of time.

    Reinwardtii.. They went in and out of amplex.. 3 weeks is what it took. Marcus breece said to someone that it took almost 5 weeks. Brent Barrick said it took 4 weeks if memory serves.. With these fronts that are moving through the US, it may not take that long.. My fingers are crossed for you.. What is the temps? I was keeping mine no lower than 78 degrees. Maybe that was something that stimulated them.. Hope that helps.
