Just watched the shedding experience.. Nearly got a heart attack when I saw this thing flailing around in the tank.. Didn't even realize what was going on...

LOL! AWESOME!!! Neat, isn't it? I was a bit disturbed by it myself the first time. Once I figured out what was going on, I was fascinated - couldn't look away. STILL can't, when I catch 'em in the act!

I. . . don't. . . think feeding them more is the answer, I think this might have to come with time! But they'll get there, I'm sure! I can't remember - my frogs and owners details are getting mixed up - have you heard yours sing yet?

Maybe once. They're in my bedroom so I'll probably hear them when the time comes!
Good point though I'll look out for singing!
And I know that betta need to be fattened up before they can spend the energy to breed so I figured frogs were the same. xD

Well... dontcha kind of have that taken care of with ONE of them at least ;)

Actually, the females ARE bigger, and very obviously plumper. ESPECIALLY when they're full of eggies! They don't reach sexual maturity until around 9 months of age, though. . . which means nothing. Cuz' we have no idea how old ours are!

I wonder why a male in a tank with a female would even bother singing? But I am ALL EARS for that one! Have you googled it yet? There are sound clips, it's a sweet little buzzy sound, I'm sure it's easy to miss, but I'll be waiting!

Mr.frogger was a singer but I haven't heard him in a long time >.< he now lives in half the ten gallon with five ghost shrimp and pearl on the other half. Jaws is in his three gallon next to pearl so he can flare. He did fine until he couldn't see pearl anymore.
I really want some middle or top swimmers for froggers side, I'd there room? And what kind?

I'm not so sure on stocking, and most of the tiny fishies need a shoal. . . maybe someone else can advise you here, but I will warn that feeding becomes more difficult when friends are involved :)

BUT I hope he starts singing for you again!!! Daaaawwww!

That's true I keep forgetting the feeding. And it's hard enough to feed him already. The shrimp are awesome I'm very happy with them. I tried one in pearls side and that was swimming desert so I put it back with Frogger
