Hi, Everyone I was wondering if anyone could help me with a question. I have had multiple clutches of Dwarf Budgett frog tadpoles with little success in raising them to metamorphs. I would out of ten clutches I have gotten one to survive. I seperate them into individual cups and have fed them a variety of live food. Black worms, live brine and mysis, guppies and i also have tried pinky parts and chopped fish off of hemostats. With water changes 1 to 2 times a day. The tadpoles do fine with little mortality and consistan tgrowth. When they get to a metamorph they start dropping off one by one. Even babies breathing air will die off. They will get a diffierent color to them kind of like a grey fungus look. When they die and left over night they will have a significant fungus growing on them post mortom. The histopaths come out inconclusive for cause of death. I have tried methyline blue, itraconozole, antibiotics and water changes all day long to keep the bacterial count to a minimum.
Can anyone help? suggestions would be much appreciated.
Thanks Tom
