Failing to hold eggs

Recommended Posts

My lithobates have bred three times in the last couple of months and i have not seen a very succesful input by the mother. i dont know whether its due to inexperince or something else... if you know plzzzz share.. also if they breed again should i just milk her after a day or so, so she doesnt swallow them

chances are she is swallowing them due to stress, or just through inexperience. couple of things you can try. one is to put her in a DIY fry saver. that works well in my experience and they tend to hold full term. if that stresses her out too much, maybe another small tank you can transfer her to when she is holding. if neither of those options work, well its going to be tough. Crabros leaves fish in the tank and doesnt feed the tank at all for two weeks and seems to have great success wth that, so that is also another way you can do it. try any or all of the above and see how you go smile.gif
