    Te he... Wanna trade a nice lithograph for the chickadee? I've got a really nice soap carving of a frog somewhere around here and if you stand far enough back from it... by gosh by golly it could look like an ivory carving.

    The poor frogs were squashed by...wood carvings![img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]
    I have never grown aquatic Utrics, but....the prescribed method has always been to have a hadful of peat (at least) in their bowl. I am not sure how that would work with the frogs. I guess you could try it.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    I don't know about African Clawed Frogs, but the aquatic frogs and salamanders around here live in very murky water. I doubt a little peat would do much harm for your frogs, but I think it might cause trouble with the filter. Maybe you could get one of those floating nets for raising fry, poke a few holes for the roots to grow through, and fill that with your Utrics and medium.

    Ummm, not exactly Griffin, "The poor frogs were squashed by...wood carvings!"- I did learn that the boys thought my Ivory frog carving was a really neat bar of soap and it is long gone. Husband is laughing about the demise of my masterpiece.

    Rats! I wish seedjar would have posted that great idea about using a fry net for aquatic utrics before I went to PetSmart and ultimately to WalMart to pick up the little spongie filter thingies.

    Here's the spongie filter thingie I picked up-

    Please tell me this is what you all had in mind?

    Looks like some Cabomba floating in the tank.

    That filter looks about right, Laura. But I don't understand - why can't you use the filter and my idea at the same time? Those guys are real cuties, BTW - makes me wish I could have my old aquarium and frogs in this apartment (we can have dogs, but no aquariums - arg! I have bettas just to be rebellious.)
