    Oh NO! ADF found out of tank, still alive!

    Please do NOT add salt to your frogs water! Salt is not only not needed, but there is information out there that shows it actually harms the frogs ability to osmoregulate. Clean, dechlorinated water is best.

    New ADF babies!!

    Buchansm has some great points about the freeze dried foods and that varitey is always a good thing! I must point out though that many of us keep our ADFs happy and healthy on a diet of mainly bloodworms, and many of us would advise to use blood worms as a staple of the diet. I have also...

    10 Gallon Tank Please help identify snail

    Looks like a ramshead to me. I don't know if they are hermaphrodites or how they reproduce. But it is really pretty!

    Would like some expert advice on getting a goldie :)

    Yes, thanks Jenste and Ken! Drain-O is doing wonderfully and there are plans for getting more ACFs for him to hang around with I will not be getting any fish for the frog tank, thanks for all the replies!

    Would like some expert advice on getting a goldie :)

    The frogs wouldnt hurt the goldfish, and the temps are suitable for everyone involved. My question was really about the space (not bioload) in the tank and if the goldfish would be ok with out another of his kind around.

    Would like some expert advice on getting a goldie :)

    Well, myself and other experienced ACF keepers think that its ok to keep more than 'suggested' ACFs in longer tanks. And the typical rule for ACFs is based on how big the common X. Laevis get, since I will only have one or two of the common kind and the other one (or 2) are much smaller breeds...

    Giant Snails from Sulawesi

    Awesome! Thanks for your personal experiences Harpua! My tank stays around 76-78' F, its the happy medium for the frog I have now and the frogs I want to get in the future. Expect a PM from me!

    Would like some expert advice on getting a goldie :)

    I have a 30gal tank, the only occupant right now is my ACF, Drain-O (and a handfull of mystery snails I was trying to 'save', but they are not doing so well). My plan is to get more ACFs, up to a total of 3 or 4 by the end of the year. If you know anything about ACFs, the kind I have is a X...

    Giant Snails from Sulawesi

    Where can you get these? I would love a large snail!! (I ADORE snails!!) EDIT: I just read they need temps from 81-87' F! That is HOT! Not going to work in my temperate tank

    Where can I get ADFs?

    I read the whole thread, I understand that she got some good looking froggers from a LFS, but she did notice some *possibly* ill-fated ones at petco. What I was trying to point out is that any stock from petco in the future probably will contaminate her tanks, so to be wary if she goes to them...

    Where can I get ADFs?

    Unfortunatly what you describe here with them climbing all over, crawling, and being increadibly active is a bad sign ADFs usually hide or sit quietly on the bottom of the tank, they espcially hide when they are stressed and that is what they should have been being a new shipment and being in a...

    How Far along Is My Guppy And Do You Think M/F For Another

    Keep a strict eye on them, this situation could still end up badly since they have only been together a week. Dont get any more fish until you do get a bigger tank. You should stock to the tank size you have now, rather than something you *might* get in the future. Oh, and males and...

    50 Gallon Tank To add salt or not to add salt

    I would bet that more than 90% of experienced fish keepers here will tell you NOT to add salt to a freshwater tank. You should be worrying about keeping ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate levels apropriate, Q-ing new arrivals, and over all water quality. Salt is really an out dated practice and not...
