    Re: Uh Oh. Gonna have babies

    One of the tadpoles is far more advanced than the rest. It has fully formed front and rear legs and is now 'emerging'. It spends its time near the surface, breathing air most of the time now.

    The biggest tadpoles now have little 'nubs' where their front legs will emerge. Their rear legs have emerged and are growing and i've seen them kick once in a while. They still swim side-to-side...

    Re: birth defects in froglets??

    spinach seems to be a great tadpole food. just wilt a few leaves, throw it in the tank. high in calcium.

    algae pellets should be a good food with a wide spectrum of nutrients.

    that's what I...

    I think I found the magic command line option that keeps the live stream going. Previously, it would stop within about an hour of me starting it up.

    They are all doing great!

    oh good lord. Bloat!

    my understanding of 'bloat' is that it is a secondary symptom. Something is going on that is preventing the frog from controlling its own fluids, and it blows up like a...

    Re: Poor frog!

    Re: Uh Oh. Gonna have babies

    One thing i've noticed about the tadpoles...when they get large enough, they eat all the snail eggs they can find.

    The tadpole poop, after a snail egg meal, ends up just like a string of eggs.

    Re: What kind of filter can I use with tadpoles?

    An easy way to clean up your water is with partial water changes. Use a product that removes chlorine, add it to your tap water, let the water sit for a while to equalize in temperature. Then drain...

    Re: What kind of filter can I use with tadpoles?

    The thing about a filter is how, after a while, a bacterial cycle gets established which gets rid of ammonia and nitrites.
    It can take a month for the good bacteria to set up shop.

    Re: What kind of filter can I use with tadpoles?

    I find that growing tadpoles can foul the water more than any fish.

    I have a "Hydor 150" which is a pump designed for a 20-40 gallon tank. It's pumping about 11 gallons. Filters get changed...

    Re: Is this something to be concerned about?

    No, not to worry. They can, at will, change their color from charcoal to bright green. Mine are often very dark. And yet there's mornings where I greet a bunch of bright bright green frogs.
