    With pumilios do you let the parents feed eggs or can the tads be raised out of the viv?

    Not sure, we don't mess with the tads, with any of our frogs, the parents take care of them.

    Pumilio are obligate egg feeders. They must be left in with the parents to let the female feed unfertilized eggs.

    There are instances with very experienced keepers that have been able to raise tadpoles by hand using egg yolk and other oophaga surrogate eggs but this is rare and very difficult.
