I understand what you're feeling. But that feeling should be replaced by a sense of pride and accomplishment. You've done everything right and successfully raised those froglets to the point where they need a new home Good job!!

One of my tree frogs started croaking for the first time last night (they grow up so fast😢) and of course it stopped before I could see which one it was. Wondering if whites tf's be sexed visually?

Im genuinely surprised how at quickly these dudes grew from the tiny froglets that I received in April. So far, so good.

They can, to an extent.

I’ve had only males- males will develop nuptial pads on their front legs. Little brown spots on their thumbs.

Google you’ll see pics. They can be quite obvious when you look.

Males and females call- so that is not an indicator.

Also look for the thicker, heavier bodied frog. Generally those will be females. Pretty typical in most frog species as the females are bigger to carry all those eggs.

Thanks for the good info @viper69 @Frogdaddy, I will look into it, are nuptial pads present all the time? or is it something that only appears during the breeding season.
How old do they have to be to breed?
Would a rain chamber be necessary, I would like to build one

I finally got my new pacman frog and it's not exactly as "blue" or as "teal" as I thought. Honestly it looks more like a peppermint or lighter grade peppermint than an actual teal. This was a Samruai Teal "Grade A" blue/teal that I ordered but hopefully the colors will be more prominent as it grows up.

Not as blue as I imagined. But only time will see if those colors change or not. I provided two pictures of the same frog taken under different lightings.

Also got some new Albino (samurai line) Pacman Frogs as well

A bit of moss on it from the shipping container, but it's fine.

Been a while since I kept them...Might be seasonal...maybe not

Rainchanber is not always necessary to see them, unless you want to breed. Rain chambers really do give them the best cues.

For example I had a single juvi male, no other frogs- he developed the pads and the croaking

And during the night...
Meh they really aren't that bad at night. Once in a while I hear them at night.

Probably the same frequency as auratus, tincs, but they are louder than those two speices. Still I wouldn't put them in a bedroom.

But they do start early in the morning. I mean like before first light. Like birds.

I was doing a bit of tank re-setup for my Ranitomeya sirensis tank that I just rebuild, adding some more leaves. Well, one of the frogs decided that I was too close for comfort and took off, leaping 8" from one of the branches out the open sliding door, onto the floor and immediately hopped the opposite direction under my rack.

I had to take apart the bottom of the rack beside this tank to get access to where the frog had wedged itself. Luckily, I got the frog out and no harm was done. Lesson learned, only open the viv door the smallest amount possible...

Thought I'd share that story for your enjoyment

Also, I added a couple of tadpole depositing cups, as soon as they went in one of the frogs started exploring it. 20200906_185530.jpg

The very unglamorous side of keeping frogs 100_3729.JPG
Yep, it's culture cup clean up time.
