Thank you! I'm planning on switching to sand once my tank is a bit more established. In the meantime, I'll give him the froggy pellets and see if I can convince him that they ARE food! It's hard to tell if he's even FINDING them, as they kind of get lost in the gravel. I may have to go out and find some frozen bloodworms, just so I know the poor little guy is actually eating something. Once again, I'm bummed out that the pet store people have given me misinformation. *sigh* Also going to get that filter covered in pantyhose, lol, it sounds so silly! So far, he's doing very well and seems happy. I've added more plants to the back of his tank for him to hang out under, and I *think* he may have shed for the first time when he switched to his bigger tank. :) How fun!
Thanks again for all of your great information - I'm sure I'll come up with more questions for you as I still have a LOT to learn!
Okay! Lets see if i can do this in short answers.... lol I'm on my phone.
Sand is best, but typical gravel is good too, as long as the bits are roundly bigger than his head. The larger river rock can shift and trap little legs, so that is no good.
Pantyhose is a feat filter cover, make sure it is new, and rinse very well in HOT water before use.
Frog pellets like you have is a good main food, brine shrimp actually have very little nutritional value, i prefer frozen bloodworms, and those can be fed daily. They even cost about the sane.
Hope i got all the questions, live talking about these guys, come back again soon!! :3 __________________
