    My crawled frogs

    I have had 4 frogs for 2 years and are currently living in a 20+ gallon tank. I believe they are all girls but I am not sure. They are all happy and plump. I over feed them that is why the water is cloudy. I use 2 pots and 2 small pieces of PBC pipe to let the hide, I have the fix the pots as the frogs tipped them over. I use a light to heat them up as I don't have a real heater to do it. I love how these frogs can be agressive, once my when I was letting the water sit in the tank they were in my brothers tank with a young oscar. He kept saying that the will be hurt by it but, all of a sudden the little one bit the oscars head and scared the crap out of my brother! The oscar is fine but, now my brother needs to give it to a pet store that will give it its propper care. I also have a young albino frog in a smaller cage. I hope that it will soon reach mixxing size but that is very unlikly.

    That water should not be in such a condition. There's no excuse for that. I don't mean to sound harsh but that's practically a septic tank and these are living animals here, and amphibians at that. Do you do water changes?

    If I were you I'd get rid of three of them. Trade them in for credit. They are cute and I'm sure you love them but that's a high bioload and those are messy animals. Do you do any ammonia/nitrite/nitrate tests? At the very least siphon off uneaten food.

    Oh and be careful with that light. I'd get a real heater if I were you.

    I don't know why that matters, they like cloudy water, their tadpoles even filter fed.

    There's a difference between the muddy and free floating algae that tadpoles eat in the stagnant pools where they inhabit and decaying feces and food.

    Your animals.

    That is neither of those two, it is a solution so not even the filter can clear it out.

    Oh sorry, I don't check ammonia because I add pelets to the filter that are sopposed to get rid of it. I also did a 3/4 water change. The light is only until I can afford a real heater and I secured it As best I can.

    Do siphons and regular water changes, the water will clear up, that tank looks disgusting dude. Like water shouldn't look like that, do water tests get some live plants in their or something to help clear it up, thats just gross.

    Well now I can see the back of the tank. The color is smelless and is only a problem at seeing them. Once my brothers tank is oscarless my brother is going to take one and the put it in his tank with some full grown chilid's. Also my other brother is going to take the albino in his 30 gallon and maybe on of the bigger ones.
