ADF Fun

A few of us on here have ADF's and seldom do we get to talk about them like we do fish so here is a little corner just for those cute lovable little frogs.

Talk about your ADF's favorite treats, funny things they do, and pictures.

As for me Bilbo loves snacking on bloodworms, blackworks, brine shrimp, mysis shrimp, and beef heart. Still looking for other treats you can feed an ADF, does anyone have any idea's? I was toying with the idea of baby crickets and chopped up mealworms (which I feed my rats so I have plenty live ones right now) but not really sure if anyone has fed them and if the harder shells would cause issues.

One of the funniest things Bilbo has ever down was leap out of the hospital tank he was in once he got better. When he was sick he was more than happy laying on the bottom of the 1 gallon hospital tank but once he started feeling good he wanted to explore. Finally one day when I opened the lid to throw him some brine shrimp he launched himself from the tank and ran a lap around my bedroom before stopping at the tank and waiting for me to put him back. Never has he given me such a heart attack and luckily he hasn't done it again since.

Why I got into ADF's
Originally I just wanted a great tankmate for my betta Aquarius. ADF's seemed to be the sort with more personality than a snail or shrimp. I didn't think my little frog would pull so hard at my heart strings. Now that I have one I want to get a tank just for ADF's and keep 3-5 depending on tank size. Just can't get enough of those cute faces and of course their very clean and obvious silly personalities.

I'm hoping to get an ADF soon, if I can find one. With mealworms look for the ones that have just molted, ie. are still white. They're nice and soft, so don't pose a risk of impaction. Be careful with crickets, they have a nasty bite. It should be okay, and fun for Bilbo, too, since all the crickets I've gotten swim on the surface of Spot's water. (Spot is my leopard frog, he has a 1/2 land, 1/2 water 20 gal tank)

lol, when at least one of my fish pass (I know, it's a terrible thought and I will be upset) I plan on sticking 2 ADF's in my tank. So yes, it was a joke bc I want to hear more about people's froggies.
2 wouldn't be okay in a 3g would they??

I want one of these frogs! But, it's for a sorority of 7 and 4 Cories. :( It's going to be next to impossible. Especially if the Cories are already hard to deal with. >:L

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

I would have one if Carter would behave I am sure Carter would hurt it.

Choc, you could get another 10 gallon and just have a frogs only tank.

Here's my little dude Bilbo Froggins.
