Miss Meow, I must confess, I just got Senor Squiggy and I am still trying to figure out what's best for him to eat, since I never see him eat : ( What do you suggest, Jilly? I know it's ok if I don't see him eat, but I don't see any food left around FOR him to eat! Even when I turned off the lights after putting in food, my fish STILL found it all.


What's going on??

I dunno. I'll ask.
WhHHaaAAAAAAAATTTs GooiiiNGG OooON?!

What's he saying?

This one's a little trickier... He's either saying, 'it's time to move to the back of the throat' or, he wants a strawberry float.

I got the frozen bloodworms at PetSmart Saturday when I bought the otos. They all seemed to love them. Even my cichlids were darting around like mad grabbing them. (They're in different tanks!) <img src="/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />

Of course, the otos are just sucking away on the sides and bottom of the tank. I may put in a couple of spinich leaves when the algae is gone.

I guess I'll sound like a MickyD commercial when I say, "I'm lovin it!" They are all cute and fun to watch.

Cat, your frogs will eat anything. Fish food, frog food, insects, live food, whatever.

Well, mine will not eat their frog food, at least not yet, but maybe I'll try again tonight. The frog that I have without the hand could not have lost it from my betta, because I noticed before they were ever in the same tank--but it was a good suggestion <img src="/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" /> You all really never see them eat? Mine go nuts when I feed them. SO maybe they would eat the pellets, I just don't wait long enough. I get so paranoid that they won't eat them and they'll pollute the tank.

when I first got frogs, I worried about all this. but it seems to have worked out. I've had these frogs over a year and they are not dead, so they MUST be eating something.

you can only do so much. Don't stress too hard. if you have clean gravel, they are scavenging something.

Hi, I am new to the forum but I have been reading the posts on this forum for a few days now and it has really helped me out.

Anyways, I bought a couple of African Dwarf Frogs for my 2 bettas, Dante and Girl. Dante and Girl both have the Aquascene 1 set-up with added Junior Heaters that keep the temps at about 80, and a Java Fern for each tank. I am a complete novice to pet fish but I am having tons of fun with it and believe I am doing a good job at it. <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

The frog in Dante's tank got nipped at by Dante, but when the frog faught back Dante, shocked, stopped nipping. Yay! The frog is now hiding under a cave decoration that Dante can't get to, so I feel ok about that tanks set-up even though I can't see the frog and pray that he is able to get out from under the cave and breath.

The frog in Girl's tank was nipped at much more and I did not see him fight back. He just put his hands over his head laying flat and closed his eyes; the poor guy. Girl was to rough for my liking so I took her out of the tank for a few hours and she is still out. I rearanged Girl's tank to give the frog a hiding spot, but I am not sure if he has found it yet. Girl is still in time out and I want to see the frog find his hiding spot before I put her back in.

I'm having way too much fun with this... fish
