    It's time for the 2 African Dwarf Frogs to move out of the 29G and into their own place.

    As we've added fish to the tank, it's become increasingly more difficult to feed the frogs, and to be sure they are eating their share of food. Even with a turkey baster aimed directly in front of the frogs, the fish win the food battle every time. They're just quicker and more aggressive.

    I picked up a 5G tank at the Reptile Expo over the weekend. My fingers are crossed that it will hold water, since I don't know if it's made for that purpose. So far it hasn't leaked. It's sitting inside of a plastic tub now, just in case (thanks to RiversGirl for the suggestion).

    I bought a small heater and a small "internal" filter, but both of those are going back - heater didn't work, and filter doesn't fit the way it should. I ordered a different filter, and I'm hoping for better results, and I'm looking for another heater. According to some information I've read online, neither piece of equipment is entirely necessary, but for the location of the tank and the temperature of our house I think the frogs will be better off with both.

    My daughter decorated the tank - she told me before we went to the store that she had her idea already in her head and she'd know what to buy when she saw it. It took her 10 minutes to find what she wanted. We've never been in and out of the pet store so quickly!

    This is her design of the tank before we added water to it.

    Once we have the proper heat and filtration, the frogs can move in.

    Whoohoo! The heater works, and I love this new little filter that's exactly what I wanted! As long as the water level reaches the "minimum" line, it will work fine. I'd like to keep the tank just 2/3 full so there is less pressure on the walls (convinced myself that this is how I'm going to avoid a flood - HAHA). The flow is adjustable and I can move the arm so that the water is falling almost against the side wall of the tank. I added a couple ceramic balls, and a bit of my biobag to the tiny little filter media cartridge. Can't wait till K gets home to see the completed set up.

    (also, I want more frogs!)
