It's as much as there were yesterday, so none of them died :D My mom has been waiting for old food to sink to the bottom, then she sucks it and some of the water out from the bottom with a turkey baster, and uses the baster to aerate them a bit. We're still feeding the crushed fish flakes.


They have little irredescent spots near their eyes that look kind of like headlights XD

Sounds like you and your mom are doing a great job! I don't think my mom would never do anything like that haha.

I still can't get over how teeny they are :)

Well, they're my mom's frogs, so... And they are teeny, but easily visable. And it's so cute when they swim!!

That is so cool! I wish my mom had frogs lol.. How do they swim? Do they look like fish, or do they just wiggle around?

they just kind of move, and sometimes they shoot forward. occasionally I'll see their tails move.

When our pool is out of service from like September to March it gets tad poles (this is Florida, so winter is a loose term, haha). They're sooo cute and good at getting rid of mosquito larvae! It's fun to watch them develop. When we drain the pool to get it back to being swimmable, if some are still in there, we take them out and put them in tupperware tubs to finish growing.

During summer, the frogs lay eggs allll around the pool and live in any crevice they can find around the pool. It pisses my dad off, haha. I guess being around the chlorine doesn't bother them enough to leave! The eggs never hatch, though. But that could be because my dad always destroys their nests.

Thank you! I can't wait either. Especially because if a few of them survive, my mom'll get a ten gallon to house them all. And ten gal = possibly another betta to go in with them, and will free up the frogs' current tank. And kfish, do the tadpoles survive?
