    Default Red eyed tree frog breeding

    Hi Guys, I had been hearing calls from my red eyed tree frogs and they are 1-2years old so I decided to build a rain chamber inside a Exo terra 24x 24x 36inch (height) with rain bar and some live plants to let them breed on but every time a pair will amplexus and last for 2-4days but no eggs,Why is that so?
    Could anyone in this forum which had bred red eyed tree frogs explain why is it so that my pair of frogs would amplexus for 4days but no eggs and these had happen more than 5times but no eggs !

    The exo terra tank, by the way I am having problem keeping the crickets alive in this rain bar setup as I always wake up with lots of dead crickets and I would need to change the water daily !! Any suggestion to prevent the Crickets from drowning ?

    1. Your female may noy be receptive. Do you have a ratio of 2 males per each famale? That will help the females because she watches the males fight over her and the strongest males will get the privlage to mount her. Did they go through a dry season of about 55 to 60 percent humidity with bulk feeding prior to getting to 75 to 100 percent humidity...also barametric pressure has a lot to do with it...so when it rains turn ur rain chamber on.....

    2. Also you dont need to feed you frogs while in the rain chamber.... if you chose to still do that...you can by floating plastic aquatic plants to help them stay afloat. Thats what do do since I have a half vivarium and half rain chamber combo


    Hope this helps

    Currently the ratio is 3 males and 3 females but I could add more male into the rain chamber as I got a total of 12red eyed .
    i had put them in a dry season for 2-3months and they are fat before breeding them. Can I ask, u said that I need not feed my frogs in the rain chamber ?? But how long can they last without food? And how long would you leave them inside before taking them out if they don't breed ? And if they are ready , they would lay for u in a day or 2?

    You can go 1 full week in the rain chamber with no food. If no eggs take them out of the tank and feed them for 1 full week...then try again a week later =)
    Took me about 3 times before they actually laid eggs...IT WILL happen...just be patient. You have a really good rain chamber I have full faith that it will work...keep us updated.
    ALSO as soon as you have eggs remove the adults... and stop the rain system. (if you do not the rain drips will kill the eggs) -OR- you can cut the leaves they were rained on and put them in a seperate tank by taping the leaves to the side of the tank. 10-20 gallon tank would be best. IT IS CRUTIAL you maintain humidity in the tank so make sure you cover the top with something (preferably glass) to maintain moisture so the eggs do not dry out. I found an automatic fogger works REALLY well to maintain humidity. Misters not so much. If your eggs are not fertile they will mold over within the 4th day) You will see development on the eggs on the 3rd day anyway.

    Thanks by the way how do you know the males and female are ready for breeding ?
    Like the males are calling and the female are fat? Or it there a way to tell the female is having egg?

    your females are not being recessive at the moment... they will get there. Give it time. You can tell by the sides of the female and how fat they are. Keep it up..like i said it took me 3 seperate times (2 months) until my females started putting out on the regular. One thing,,, if you flash lights on them at night they will get disturbed. Leave the frogs alone.. no lights at night (unless its an LED BLUE light simulating moonlight)...if you can put a towel around the glass (NOT ON TOP OF THE STREEN) do that so they dont get stressed over your surroundeing environment...just make sure they have good ventilation. I would advise getting plant clippings for the bottom of the tank in the water so you can put crickets in the rain chamber without them drowning..... the less handling the better.
