It shoulda stayed the way it was...
So last night i got a little excited, and decided to set up the Monster tank...[pic1] this took into the late night, cause there were parts I had to fill in, and normally, someone would just fill it with gravel, or plant plants there, but since i have neither extra gravel to throw around, or soil/plants, I was stuck filling it with water bottles, netting it off, and trying to pour a bit of gravel to cover it...The basics are there, and no fishy/frog can wiggle though, but its not the prettiest. =]
I floated Tyrion til this morning, and then released him, snatched up Senorita Frog, the first frog i got, and started to acclimate her,but she decided she didnt want to be in the cup and proceeded to jump out, and get herself stuck behind the"river rock" plastic peices in the tank. Believe me, i didnt put these things in, or they would be much better placed! As it is, Senorita went from one side, to another, while stuck in the plastic, then wedged herself into a hole where i couldent reach her for the life of me. So, i started swirling the water around, and despite her best efforts, she came fighting out of her little hole, [pic 2 its the smaller bump, underneath the top opening, which conveniently doesnt open into the smaller one. my fingers only bend one way!] And I had to do this a few times, cause getting her out of that opening was no easy feat!
It was when I released her, did i realize how lost she looked in the big tank, and How was she going to find the feeding portion, I suddenly felt it was a bad idea to move the frogs to such a big tankbeing so little, and since i feed them with a pipette, i was just nervous i was going to accidentally starve them. So, traumatizing the poor Senorita yet again, I took her and put her back in the 2.5, took Zoolander to acclimate in the big tank, and started emptying water. Im lucky enough that whoever put this monster tank together, did it so that with about 6 gallons of water, the tank is saftley seperated, giving me a safe place to house the bettas. Though one betta gets two sections, and one only gets one, i doubt they mind. [pic 3]
So as of now, the frogs are in the 2.5, yes, two African Clawed Frogs, each about an inch an a half, are in my 2.5 gallon...[pic 4]
I do have the 10 gallon empty, but no filter, as they are already set up in the monster tank. Im doing water changes everytime they eat, which is a few blood worms twice a day, from this food from tetra, called fresh delica, which is basically bloodworms in jello, and they go crazy for it!
Im not sure if im going to wait til they get a bit bigger, then move them, or just move them and put less water in there. They ARE tiny.
Hmm...ill think it through tonight.
Its feeding and water changing time, so ill leave you with this..[pic5]
