    Default Finally got more frogs

    I will try to post some pics some time this week. I have been holding out for close to a year hoping that a female albino would come around big enough to keep with my "wild type" female Calypso. Today I decided to just get a froglette and grow it out. To my surprise the store I went to also had reticulated albinos mixed in with the albinos. There was also a sale, so I got them for $6.40 each. They are normally $20+ around these parts for wild types and albinos. I looked over a few of them hoping to see signs of them being females. They were just too young still. I went with a hunch, got one of each. Hope I'm right. I love the bulkyness of females. Not into the singing of males either.
    I wanted to name them after something big and sea themed, so I decided to name them after aircraft carriers. I went with Kitty and Kennedy. (USS Kittyhawk and USS John F. Kennedy)
    Again I will get some pics up in a few days because these threads suck without them.

    OK, I should have time tonight to get a couple of pics up of these guys/gals. So far they are great eaters. They ate mysis the first couple of days. Last night they had some reptilmin and ctually ate it. I thought it was going to be tough to get them on it. Hopefully they will be in with Calypso by summer.

    Thanks for the kind words everyone. I will add some more pics in a few weeks. They are already noticeably bigger. Probably about a 40-50% increase in size already. They are eating broken up pieces of Reptilmin and thawed frozen mysis right now.

    I just wanted to throw a quick update on here. I have been too busy and lazy to take any new pics due to crazy work schedule and listing/selling our house. The Albino baby is definately female and I am 99.99999% sure the Retic. is a male. Not what I was hoping for, but he is still cute. I have been trying to find time to go and see if the store still has some in stock and see if I can get a female Retic, but the store is a haul from where I live.
