Another question about ADF'S

It's me again.

I have bamboo in my ADF kritter keeper tank.

I fill up the water a little more than halfway so both frogs can get air.

usually in a few weeks or even less, the water level goes down by itself.

Should I be concerned, or is the bamboo just doing the water changes for me? ouo

Okay, answer these questions for me:

How many frogs?

What size is the kk?

Why don't you fill the water up?

Is the water more than 75 degrees?

Why does it take you a couple weeks to do a water change?

Depending on tank size and how many frogs you have you should be cleaning the tank twice a week. 1 50% water change and one 100% water change unless the tank is cycled. If it's not cycled it NEEDS two water changes a week or ammonia will build up and kill the frogs.

I did. the plant sucks it down i'm assuming.

Don't know the temp.

I keep forgetting; but I changed it last night finally.

That is too many frogs in too small a container. That kk is too small for a single frog even. I'm sorry, but you need to upgrade to at least five gallons for the two you have now, and if you want two more not only do you have to qt for three months to avoid illness, but you also have to upgrade again to a ten gallon tank. Are you up for the task?

The water going down is from evaporation, not the plant...

You need a big enough tank if you get 10 gallon would love to see that.
