    I cant believe this!!!!!!! Yesterday while i was cleaning my ADF tank I found this teenie little one. I cant beleive it!!!!!! And I all but missed it. Ive had these huge FAT froggies for a while (they came to me this way...not because I over-feed ...lol) were always laughing how they get in all of these positions.(all but the right one)..and now I know for sure they are a male and a female...

    I unfortuneatly do not keep a filter in there ...I tried and they didnt do well....they were given to me by my LFS .Another customer had had them in a tiny cup like thing and was tired of taking care of them....so they were given to me...I did put them in a 5 gal for a while but they just didnt thrive...so now there in a 2 gallon that I clean a couple of times a week.Yesterday was houscleaning day .

    This little guy almost went down the drain....lol.....I always dump everything out and clean like crazy.Im not even sure how old it is but Im hoping I can get him to survive. Its no bigger than a pin-head......I had no idea how teenie they really are when born!!!!!!

    Yay! Congrats Lori!
    Isn't it exciting to find tadpoles!!!

    They are amazingly teeny and cute as heck.
    Look at him with a magnifying glass as he grows. It's fascinating!
    Good luck raising him.

    I used to catch tadpoles and raise them to frogs when I was a kid, but they weren't that small! I am amazed you saw it at all.

    OMG, I never realised how fat your ADFs were until now!!! :;laughing

    Hope your little baby makes it! Seems like tadpoles are coming around a lot on the forum! Maybe my frogs are next! :giggle:

    The parents will eat eggs and tads.
    Maybe move him to a small heated tank. He doesn't need filtration or alot of room right now.
    Live BBS and daily water changes will give him the best shot.

    Keep us posted!
