i got my shrimp and snails! they are in a 10g quarantine, because they were in a tank with adf that i'm pretty sure had chytrid. so thats not good. so they are going to be quarantined for 3 months. i ordered a preset heater and a thermometer to monitor the temp.

wow its been a long time since i updated and A LOT has changed! so much i don't even know where to start. i hope i don't forget anything. 2 of my shrimp died, the 2 smallest. the other 2 seem to be doing quite well. my 2 nerite snails eat algae wafers (i read this is rare). i added the duckweed and salvinia to my quarantine tank, and then removed it after about 2 weeks. its back in a plastic tub and once the shrimp/snail quarantine is over i think i'm going to try it in my main tank. the q tank has a hob filter and no matter what i did i couldn't keep the plants away from the out take and it was just constantly making a mess and clogging the filter. my snails started mating and leaving eggs everywhere, but i don't really mind. my frogs also started mating but i haven't seen any eggs or tadpoles. i'm honestly not 100% sure on the frogs sex. one of them has arm pit bumps that seem to disappear and reappear randomly. but from the lack of eggs i'm thinking its a boy. and 2 nights ago i heard my frogs singing for the first time! scared the crap out of me because at first i didn't recognize the sound and couldn't figure out what it was.

i really do enjoy my shrimp, but i'm not sure if i'm going to replace them when they die. i have to travel quite a distance to get them and yeah. i think when they die, i'm going to buy 1 more ADF and keep it in the quarantine tank until it can be added to the main tank. but also after quarantine i have been debating getting a couple frogs for in there doing the 3 month quarantine and then adding the other 3 frogs in there and having an adf only tank. or possibly doing a shrimp only tank, but i would have to order the shrimp online which i am not too fond of that idea. but idk i still have like a month and a half of quarantine left and even after i don't have to make a decision right away. a HUGE draw back for me though is i have no where to put a second tank in my room except on the floor which makes water changes a pain. i haven't asked yet but i'm hoping my mom will let me move the tank to the kitchen counter (literally the only other place it could go) but i'm pretty sure shes not going to be ok with that. so idk. i have a bunch of pictures i've been saving for here so without further ado

i haven't updated again but for once i've got a good reason. i went through some bad health stuff and then my mom got diagnosed with cancer and had surgery. the only major tank changes are the shrimp and snails were added to my main tank and one shrimp died. oh also i got some live plants! they are betta bulbs. they seem to be doing well.

the frogs failing at mating

Well it's an early Sunday evening. It's a beautiful day, spent some time outside and now I'm relaxing in bed watching bgc Chicago so I figured I'd provide an update and the rest of the pictures I took. Idk where to start... I had wanted more frogs for a while so I planned a day to go to the pet store but I ended up getting a migraine that day and didn't go. Waited a week or so and planned a day again and I called pet supplies plus the night before and they were out of stock. So I waited a week again and called the night before and bloodworms and adf were in stock. So the next afternoon I went and they were out of both! And while talking to the employee she said "the frog kept going after (her) guppy and trying to attack it" so I'm going to guess it was actually an acf..

So I waited a a couple days or a week and went to petsmart. They had bloodworms and adf! But I had to sign some paper saying I understand the health risks of owning frogs... Um what? I just signed it. The lady got 2 frogs in the thing and got the third in the net and he jumped out and splatted flat on his back flipped himself over and started hopping around! I just kinda stood there and went "ummmmm maybe not that one" lol so she got me another and he jumped out too! But only fell about 3 inches so I still took that one. But I feel bad cause there was only 2 other frogs left and the one that fell is probably going to die leaving that one by it self.

I didn't have anything setup at home so I had to rush a bit but it ended up being fine. They are in my heated filtered 10g tank. I was able to seed filter media plus decor and I took gravel from my main tank. So I'm sure the cycle is going good. I'm able to tell these 3 new frogs apart really well. I think one is a blonde! It has super light skin and very light eyes, one has dark skin and light eyes and the last has dark skin and dark eyes. I have 3 names picked out, Heimlich, Val and Lilypad but idk what name I want to o what frog yet.

So here's the pics










And from my old tank here's earl, Charlie and flick and dot
