All of that, of course requires the appropriate water changes to keep the water clean.
You're probably right! I sometimes forget to clarify that I'm just writing about what I've found has worked best for me and my babies. Thank you for the clarification :)

Whatever you gals choose to do, keep a close eye on things, and keep us posted, please!

Ever since she filled her belly last night, Frog has been busy and active and much less shy!! She's so fun to watch.

Okay, here's the plan.
I'm going to move the sorority out of the 10 gallon.
I'm going to move the frogs into the 10 gallon.
How many frogs can fit happily in a 10 gallon? Kinda want a cute frog community.
I'm thinking 5?

I'm going to move the sorority into a 33 gallon or a 55 gallon I'm currently
looking into.

To think this all started from overcrowding my frogs xD
My sorority'll be happier (and me cause i get to add more females >:D ) and so will my frogs.

Thanks again for all your help.

Okay nope, researched it.
3 frogs in a 10 gallon.
xD sorry for the spam, but also, pictures!
Lol, so many frog photos. Sorry for dumping them here D:
These photos made me realize, they really love that 5 gallon.
they know all the nooks and crannies, and all the best hiding places.
I don't want to seem stingy, but if I move Marine (the betta) can I keep
them in there? Uuugh idk!

Anyway, photos!

This one is my favourite, by far. It isn't the best quality since it didn't focus, but it's hilarious.

"Come here, I'll share the secret of my youth."



Now, I think this is the male, but he's amazing at hiding spots. Takes forever for me to find him.

Last night, found him floating here:



Today, under the IAL:



And finally, peeeping out from the cave:



Now for some cute photos!







Chillin'







All of these photos were taken within 5-10 minutes. As soon as they smell food, they just become super active. so cute

Soooooo CUTE!!! ^.^ Three cheers for picture spam!!!

I agree with that, honestly. I'm sure you could get away with more. . . but when I kept my three in a 10g species only, it seemed to be a perfect number to me, they were very active and happy, and maintenance was a breeze. I think I had an apple or maybe a nerite in there with them, too. :) It's gonna be a lovely tank!

I think you're making a GREAT decision! Your fish, and frogs are gonna thank you for it, and you are going to LOVE having a species tank for frogs! (Of course, I'm biased and can't imagine anyone NOT loving one!!!)

This is one of the last pics of my 10g before it got taken down. :) They loved it in there - miss that lil' (MESSY!) tank :)

Be very careful with the moss balls. My frog actually dug his little hands into it and got stuck... TWICE. So I go in periodically now and squeeze the moss ball so it's really tight, making him unable to get stuck on the moss ball.

Pancake tried to amplex the moss ball, then when he realized he wasn't getting anything from it, he would tuck his hands into it to anchor himself. He still does it to the filter cartridge when he "perches" up there. lol

aww, my froggies always love their moss balls too. *giggle* That is mostly Riccia, my frogs LOVED that stuff! I still have it, but it ended up getting 'lost' in other floaters, I have to get a new mat and keep it separated :)
