Of course. Was it unclear in my posts above regarding this ? If so, my intent is to get the froglets onto dusted FF as soon as possible when their developed mouth-parts will allow. Tincs and 'Tinc type' froglets are big enough to take small melanogaster FF as soon as the tails are gone. I think there may be a misconception that froglets are "tiny" so they must need "tiny" food - hence the springs and this just isn't true.

A double misunderstanding, I offer both ffy's and springs.
Like I said, many different ways to do it.

So no one thinks the last frog looks like it has spindly leg syndrome?

I think it is hard to tell in the photo...but you may be onto something.

Supplementing every feeding is a must and in my opinion, some supplements are better than no supplements. (although I'd recommend Repashy Cal+ for every feeding)

Yes, absolutely, just from that one shot, which could be misleading, but yes.
Which in my experience is genetically active, stress triggered.
Still looking for Q answers and sphagnum too.
Darts with parasites are analogous to mixed tanks, there are no known benefits to the frogs with either.

anything close to add to the investigation ?

High heat ?

Lack of dusted food ?

Lids too tight / airflow ?

anything ?
