Discussion in 'Tree Frogs' started by lauraluvsreptiles, May 15, 2014.

  1. Hello ive had my 3 white tree frogs for a year and ive notticed these little white dots and cant find any answers on google
    The dots are tiny like end of a needle.
    the dots dont move so dont think its a insect altho wondered if they could be mold or eggs from the feeder insect they have had
    calci grubs
    ive took photo but its not very clear but any advice would be very helpfull

    Are you using bagged potting soil? If so it could be perlite.
  3. ive been using same as i have always used with no problems untill now which is the plantation soil by exo terra the only thing ive done recently that is different is ive started giving them few calci worms and few wax worms so didnt know if was eggs of a insect or grubs or something or some sort of mold?

    Well it definitely isn't mold..and if it isn't chemical pearlite or something from the potting soil, then its eggs. Try to get them out of the cage and if u cant then stop feeding the calci and wax worms
  5. thanks for reply im gonna do whole tank clean at weekend see if that helps :">
