Raising Spring Peepers - Almost a win, ultimately a fail

Rate this Entry
Any of you that were following this blog, I decided to give my sad update.

I ended up successfully raising all of my peeper froglets into adulthood. I had them for a little over a year. I had 3 males and 4 females. Then, suddenly, they all started dying off. I have no idea what happened at that time, I hadn't changed anything in the tank or with their diet or vitamins, lightbulbs, temps and humidity were all the same and even.

It started with two of them dead one morning, and then another one the next morning. I ended up putting each one in separate quarantine to try to figure out what was going on. All 7 of them were dead within 4 days. To this day, I'm clueless as to what happened because it happened so fast, and they all seemed perfectly healthy up until the hour or so before they died. I don't know if their food introduced a parasite or some kind of infection at some point or what. I didn't even have time to get them to a vet to figure out what was going on because it happened so fast.

It was all pretty upsetting to say the least. I loved listening to their peeps, as deafening as they were
