Baby monster update! We're at 12 days old now. 2x feedings a day, and I have about 3-4 BIG babies in the group. I think those are going to be my holdbacks, so everyone else can have theirs at similar sizes.



Here's a few (not the bigguns) in a betta cup to give a perspective on size.

It would cost more than it's worth to try to export to Canada.

Awwwwww...brings back such fond memories. I wish I could have one, but ACFs are illegal in my state. What are you feeding them?

the adults get specially formulated pellets from xenopus express.

The tadpoles are eating spirulina and egg yolk flake soup.

Last night, I decided that the smell of their container was too much and giving me a headache, so I cleaned the whole thing. Apparently, they're not as resilient as fish are to total water changes, I lost a few. I haven't re-counted them yet to see how many made it, but there was 95 before it happened.

Next time try dripping the water in. Should reduce losses.

They were doing fine with the 50% changes.

It could've also been the cup my son knocked in full of pens and markers.

If it makes you feel any better, that's not unusual.
