Frogbeasties

I finally got my frog beasties moved into a proper tank, only took me a few months of stress and pestering to get my other half to rearrange our space to fit it in though.

This is the overall view of their 20 gal. They're running a 30-60 gal filter on here, because frogs are dirty, and that is why I call them Stinkbeasts. Also featuring a plant mat made from my own ingenuity and plastic plants, and the lovely lily that we got from Aluka.

The albino is Freddie, the male.

Frankie (the female) looked so.... disconcerted here. I love her cute face!


There's a "Troll" under my bridge!



and just so the rare and elusive Freddie's isn't left out, that I had to ninja my way around the tank to get a photo.


Last but not least, Mini-frog, the illustrious Pancake!

Walked into my bedroom to singing. Freddie is serenading his lady love.
No video, just audio.

the two larger ones are Xenopus laevis (African Clawed Frog or Plantanna)

The Dwarf frog is Hymenochirus boettgeri.

the species I have are, there are species of "African Clawed frogs" (there's more than one with the title, the ones that do are X. tropicalis, and the Silurna sp.) who prefer things like a lily pad to sit on, but that's about it.

They are very capable of short bouts on dry land, even shorter if the frog ends up on the carpet like my male has on a couple of occasions.

Here's a little video of them from a little bit ago, Freddie is feeling amorous, and Frankie's had just about enough of his nonsense, so she's hiding underneath a decorative bridge. He actually ended up amplexing the filter intake (they have terrible eyesight, and he's kind of... dumb. Bless his heart)
