I took my kid up to the mountains yesterday and while we were wondering around I found some frog eggs in a pond.
I thought this would be great to teach her about how they grow and develop into frogs. I grabbed some along with some of the water of course. On the way home they started hatching. I had no idea they would hatch so quickly! I read something off the internet and think it could be because of the temperature change?? Not sure if thats true or not. Today they are doing just fine. Im wondering though if anyone has suggestions on what I should be feeding them. Theres a bit of algae for them in the tank and Ive heard that they like fish food. Ive also heard that they dig on lettuce thats been boiled and frozen. I havent tried the lettuce thing before and Im kinda iffy on wheather I need to go thru all that.
I also have them in a small fish bowl at the moment but plan on transferring them to one of my empty 10 gallon tanks later once I get enough safe water for them. Does anyone know if bottled water is OK? Im thinking no... although it doesnt have chlorine in it. Maybe if I leave it out on the deck for a couple of days??
Also Im wondering if I need to make sure theres enough oxygen in the water. Ive pulled up a few sites and cant find anything suggesting I do but Im not sure if that means I dont or if they forgot to add that detail to thier site.
You know when I was a kid it was so much easier since I didnt worry about this stuff I just caught them kept them and viola they were frogs.
I was wondering what you all suggest. I want these little guys to be as healthy as possible so that I can let them lose back where I found them once they are froggies.
