So my newest couple of ADFs have spent the last several hours floating at the top (propping themselves one against a fake grass and the other against the filter) with their noses popped out of the water.
The one that we best sex as a female thus far is kind of arch tummied (how could I explain it?) and every few seconds the skin under her mouth pulsates. Not taking a breath, just how it looks when a frog sings.
The one that we've sexed as a male isn't arching his tummy but just floating there, also with his nose out of the water. He's also not moving the skin under his mouth.
Here's the thing. Spring has finaly arrived, and just yesterday the frogs seem to have gathered in my neighbors untended (half dried unless i rains) small 4' wide pond. They are very loud and can be heard clearly in our room as it's the closest room to the pond. Also, the new ADFs' tank is right next to the window closest to them.
It's just a thought, forgive me if I sound silly as I have had many ADFs but never dived into their mating behavior... but is the female singing or am I mistaking the motion for something else? And is it possible the frogs are acting like this because they can hear the outside frogs singing?
