Frog Egg Sacs
I have 2 tiny egg sacks that my frogs in my fish tank
laid. I need to know if it is alright to leave the adult frogs in the
tank or if I need to take them out? Also can you move the egg sacks or
will it kill them? Does the tank have to be a certain temperature for
them to survive?
Frog eggs should not need any special care, you should be able to move them
as long as they are not out of water during the move and go into the same
conditions. Salamanders are sometimes cannibalistic, and salamander larvae
definitely will eat each other if left together in a tank but I have not
heard of frogs doing this, though it might be safer to keep frog tadpoles
and adults separate. Frog tadpoles eat algae.
