    Welcome to the board. You will need a fish tank with lots of good water filtration. Feed them leaves of spinach, algae tablets and some shrimp tablets. Once they start getting back legs, make it so they have something to climb onto. After a week, remove them to a land based tank and offer them some fruit flies to eat. Once they graduate up to small crickets, you can set them free.

    Thank you so much. I also have two full grown male grey tree frogs that i keep for pets. The eggs will soon hatch any day now.

    Also, keep an eye on them - after they hatch, they will begin the morphing process at different times (even though they were hatched at the same time).

    You may need to keep a separate tank or two (they can be small - and even just tupperware) for the ones that sprout their legs first. You'll want to get the 'froglets' into something with just a water dish or shallow water area. That way it also makes it easier to offer the wingless fruitflies. If there is too much water, the fruitflies will just drown (same with the pinhead crickets).
