Yes! They survive. The pool is like frog heaven now, haha. I'm going to go look and see if I can find any. :P

I didn't see any tad poles! They must be done growing now. I looked it up, and I guess warmer water makes them develop faster. It has been CRAZY hot here for a while (86 today). Apparently, males don't fertilize eggs except in Feb. - March so that must be why eggs never hatch when the pool is in working order.

I never looked that much into it because we've never had trouble keeping them alive. We had a TON at one point from our pool and my half-brother's pool (I lost my first tooth while watching those tadpoles when I was six! XD). We always just feed them tropical fish flakes. When they're in the pool we don't feed them at all, because there's plenty of algae, bugs, and mosquito larvae.

It was just warm... compared to how hot it gets over here, I prefer the cold too.

I live in Texas, and it is an oven right now. Not even the middle of April and it is already getting mid 90s.

Ugh. It's miserable! I can't wait to move to the frigid northlands!

My boyfriend and I visited Western NY (where he's from) 2 years ago in July and it was 45 degrees when we got there. I didn't bring a single sweater because I was not expecting that (I didn't really need one because I love cold weather)! It was AMAZING. I stepped out of the airport and was just like, "O.O OH MY GOODNESS THIS IS INCREDIBLE"

Then we got back to Florida a few days later... x_x

But we're going again at the end of May!

I have never been to New York, I have always wanted to go. I bet it feels so nice up there right now.

I kinda want to move to New York, or a city up north somewhere... It did get up to the 90's where I was, or pretty darn close. Anyway, went to Petco, got some frog food, and a cute little cambodian female for my mom's snail enclosure :)
