Very interesting. I only have 4 leos in a 40 gallon but perhaps I will take Freckles out and set up the 10 gallon and give him/her their own space and see what happens.

Thank you for the info!


:I've been enjoying your posts, seeing what I'll have to look forward to with my wood frog tads soon! Been listening to frog & toad call recordings, & the last 2 nights I've been able to identify an american toad calling, among the clamor of peepers. Can't wait to hear the green frogs too!

:Anyway here's something I came across when looking up info on aeration, seems relevant to what you're talking about. From http://www.learningspace.org/instruct/primary/projects/Frog_Web/tank.html:

:"Amphibians tend to release hormones that inhibit growth of others in the tank. This results in pinhead sized tadpoles sharing the same space with larger emergent frogs. To prevent this, don't overcrowd, use standard aquarium practice of one inch of fish per gallon of water. Release extras, or get multiple tanks to handle the overage. We used extra tanks, released some early, and gave others away to other teachers and had plenty left for our students. Incidentally, we took the pinhead tadpoles and put them in another tank and they quickly grew and developed into normal sized frogs!"

:....so maybe it's growth-inhibiting hormones? I dunno - interesting stuff tho! :-)
