Day Fifty-Six: Redecorating and Feeding Time

May 1, 2008 at 7:42 pm 2 comments

April 27 2008: As a third frog came along we decided we’d better give them a better home. So we did some redecorating. We decided they needed much more land than a few rocks pocking above the water so we filled a small tub with soil and placed it on one side of the tank. We then rebuilt up the rocks so they lead up to the tub so the frogs would be able to access it. A few well placed plants and a couple of pieces of wood and the tub of dirt looked quite nice!

Feeding was not so easy. We discovered that the frogs only ate live food. Somehow we thought they would eat frozen bloodworms and waterfleas. Research gone wrong I think. So we had to go bug hunting. In the rain. We got wet to say the least. But we dug up a good number of various crawlies of the creepy variety and carefully placed them into the tank (all flying bugs were avoided for obvious reasons). Unfortunately there’s no photographic evidence but the frogs did pounce on their live prey with delight! With one of them even taking on a small cockroach. It was oddly satisfying after scambling around in the dirt.

    It is really so, but some aspects are missed or disputable, what still it is possible to find from to a question?
