Does NOT make 'em mean! Makes 'em blind and lovably dumb. . . well, I guess that is unless you're a Cory. But hopefully they understand. :)

Yeah... I'd go ahead and cut down to every other day. If your little one seems to be having trouble, you can always try using a turkey baster (or your fingers) to target feed him. . .

i fed my betta, Frank, and my ADF's tonight. they got shrimp meat from Wegmans. fresh uncooked. the frogs went nuts, they loved it. grabbed huge chunks and shook them like a dog would. Frank got a good bite, but then he was afraid of the size of the chunks. i had tried to chop it very small, but i guess i need to try harder next time. some of the frogs even took it off a long stick.

Fantastic! Glad that the betta isn't giving the froggies a tough time getting their food :) I'm happy they're eating well (and singing!!!) for you! Sounds like things are going well over there - how goes the cycling?

everything seems normal so far. the plants must be helping a lot. i am kind of waiting for a crazy spike, but so far no problems.

Gooooooooood! Plants will help tons - especially fast growing stem and floating plants. I've cycled several tanks now with no spikes whatsoever. . . that's how we like it!!!

Aww! Cute setup! Is that a 5 gallon? I've been wondering how he's doing over there - looks like all is well!

No that's my 10 gallon with jaws and pearl :D
Frogger is doing wonderful :) I'm feeding in the glass again though. The other way was a mess

LOL I thought I was confused! Whatever works best - as long as he's eating and happy! I'm so glad to hear he's doing well!

I got some aquarium sand, how would I go about changing
Out the gravel for the sand without messing everything up? The cycle and everything?
