African Dwarf frog and moss ball
So, with my male betta I have 3 African Dwarf Frogs and a cory catfish as tankmates. I've also had a moss ball in there for about 2 months. It's a nice size moss ball, getting big.
Everyone was fine until yesterday. The day before I rearranged the tank, and removed 2 bunches of fake grass that were used as hiding spaces. I wasn't too worried because I removed my betta into a hospital tank, and there are other places to hide. I saw in the morning my "silly" little frog hanging onto the side of the moss ball, and I assumed he was being a goof ball as dwarf frogs usually are. I came home from work... 10 HOURS LATER and saw he was still on the moss ball, but what appeared to be the other side of it. I went to scoot something in the tank and as I moved the hood, all the tank residents ran away as usual except for him on the moss ball. And that's when I saw it... He was STUCK on the moss ball. His front two feet were wedged so deep into the moss ball that he couldn't get free. I took a net and scooped him up with the moss ball attached and tore at the moss ball until he was free. My poor little frog was unable to get air for 10 hours. Holy cow. He seems fine though... Until this morning.
This morning, I found another ADF (not sure if it's the same one or not, I'm not good at telling them apart) stuck in the moss ball.
I have no problem for 2 months, I rearrange my tank and suddenly 2 days in a row frogs are stuck on it. I removed the moss ball and put it in another tank, which makes me sad, that was a nice looking moss ball.
This is so bizarre--do you think it's because I rearranged the tank, or is it just by chance?
By the way, I took the photo before I realized he was stuck the first time, just thought he was being silly.
