    Default New here, with new GABF!!

    Hi everyone! I just joined this wonderful forum, because yesterday I was FINALLY able to get my very first frog! I picked up a six month old Giant African Bullfrog during the Boxing Week sales at Petsmart yesterday. A fellow from my local herp group works at that store and is almost certain he is male, so I've named him Straxx. He's a good 5 or 6" now, and I'm looking forward to watching him grow! He's very happily burrowed into his substrate now, and I look forward to him discovering his "pond", as apparently he absolutely LOVED the water in his tank at the store and hardly ever left it, lol. I took a quick pic of his new home while I was setting it up, the thermometer was only in the water until I was sure it was room temperature: Name:  012_zpsafd44556.jpg

Size:  73.9 KB He's in a 10 gallon for now, but I'm working on picking up a 20 or 30 gallon right away, as I know he will outgrow the 10 gallon very quickly. And here is Straxx himself, just a quick pic I took before I took him from his box. Sorry for the weird formatting of this post, for some reason I can't hit enter to create a new line.

    Congrats on the new frog. If you have a Big Als fish store near you they sell new tanks for a not to bad price. I picked up a 20 gallon tall tank there in the summer for about $29.00.

    Thanks, no Big Al's here, but I've got a guy on my local fish forum offering me a 20 gallon for $25, and there's a kijiji ad I'm waiting to hear back on, that guy is selling a 20 and a 25 gallon, didn't list exact prices on them, just up to $20, so either way, I should be able to get at least a 20 gallon for $20.

    Got a great 25 gallon, 24x18" footprint, 12" tall, and I'm setting it up today. Also, I heard Strax croak last night, so cute!

    Good looking frog. Looks nice and healthy from what I can see. Take good care or him and he'll be around for years.

    Thank you, I just love him already, he's so much fun! Got some better pictures when I moved him into his new 25 gallon tank yesterday.

    LOL, yeah, that first pic is deceiving, because the box they put him in was quite large, but he's a big boy already! Can't wait to see how he matures! He croaked for the first time too the other night, so cute! Wasn't even sure it was him at first, until I googled juvenile GABF's croaking, lol.

    Thank you! I'm having a great time with him! He discovered the water in his tank a couple of days ago, and hasn't left it since, lol! He's also been croaking every evening for the past 3 nights, so I think he's happy. So cute to hear him croak, lol.
