Looking great. Do they need much in the way of water changes or other maintenance?

Lesser than most fish fry need. Every two or three days I clean the boxes with a sponge and fill the boxes with ~1/4 tapwater and 3/4 water from my Cobitis tanks. The hardest job is to catch the larves - 45 times the fight (have a few losses) Smile

Yeah, that really is great! Especially since I have, in the very beginning, put my name in for adoption! :-D

If you must insist on living in a box ...... at least do your thinking outside.

Now they can walk and they aren't so "boring" as their smaller (only with fore legs) siblings...

Yes, definitely. They walk slowly on the ground. They rarely "swim" (it's more a hectical "speed jump") in the plants and resting there. But not long, after a few minutes they are back on the bottom and searching for food.

The first have metamorphosed...No, kidding of course. The parents slowly crowd back to terrestical phase. The female stayed the last night on the land area under a broken coconut piece.

Oh dear, have found two tiny larvae in the parents tank. Only with forelegs, I never feed them, so how should they grow...

No idea how many are in the tank, one male is still in it. He don't wanna go out of the water. Smile

For the eldest it will slowly seriously, and for me too!
