    Question Green tree frogs! Eggs to tadpoles?

    My green free frogs recently mated (Tuesday night) and we now have a whole bunch of eggs in the water in their vivarium
    We've bred them twice before, so do have some experience, although we cannot remember how long it takes for their eggs to hatch. If anyone knows it would be greatly appreciated

    I assume you mean Litoria Caerulea. My latest batch hatched after only a day or two.

    Yes, Litoria Caerulea. The water temperature is currently at 24 degrees celcius. Could this be why they're taking a little longer than yours did?
    I really hope the eggs are viable!

    im pretty sure my water temps were a few degrees more than that. Are you sure the eggs are viable?

    The eggs appear to be growing in size. Besides this, I wouldn't know of they are viable or not. I have read though, that if the water temperature is cooler, the eggs and then tadpoles grow at a slower rate.

    These are green free frogs which are usually found in Queensland. I actually live in Victoria so it is somewhat cooler here lol.

    Yes, it's Spring. See, we moved the frogs to a new vivarium, and we inadvertently made it much warmer than their old vivarium. So they thought it was Summer, and they bred
