Did you get Grow-a-Frog kits when you were a kid, too?

nope! I actually rescued the albino dumbbell last fall from a fish store. He was about the size of the Dwarf and so severely emaciated that I was afraid that we were bringing him home to make him comfortable so he could die. The same with the Dwarf, who was also pretty starved too when I got him.

I decided to get the female as a friend for Freddie later on... which was while I still thought Freddie was a girl. It took months for his "tail" to go away.

I looked up the Grow-A-Frog kit. Based on the dimensions, the plastic "aquarium" (I don't even want to call it that) holds something like 0.3 gallon. According the one reviewer, the instructions tell you to never ever change the water or else "the tadpole would starve." That makes me a little bit sad. All those reviews about the little ACF tadpoles dying before they even reach adulthood...

I love Freddie. He's such an adorable frog.

Want him? he's driving me crazy!!! Once he's done being hormonal and annoying, you'd have to send him back though. lol

As much as I love him, I don't like him very much lately...

until he got amorous again, then you'd get sick of the near constant singing and filter humping. He's stopped it from working 3 times

I wasn't endorsing the cruel grow-a-frog kit. Just asking if she'd also had the childhood experience.
The frogs are actually illegal in some states because so many people released their frogs in the wild, and now they are outcompeting natives for resources. Not to mention the spread of disease.
I really miss having frogs. I looooooooove the singing SO MUCH! I have amphibian envy. ;)

Sorry, I wasn't trying to imply that. It was more "Holy crap, I wanted one of those as a kid?!" I never realised how awful they were.
