    Lol I know I know, but at $5 a pop, if I spent $25 then had them all die I'd feel bad in more ways than one.

    Well, it's up to you. I've given you my advice, it's up to you what you decide to do. You'll be fine either way, but if you only stock 2-3 frogs now, you should wait about 2 weeks to add the rest.

    When in doubt, ask yourself... W.W.L.S (What would Lee Say)?

    Oh wow, I had no idea it'd take that long before I could add more. I figured I could just go a few days in between. Interesting.

    it is because the bacteria very quickly will adjust itself to your population after the cycle is complete. so unless you stock fully right away you need to spread it out every couple weeks to prevent mini cycles.

    I promise it would be highly unlikely for you to lose all your frogs. Even if you had a problem (which you likely wont) you might lose one and then be able to adjust before you lose the others or something.

    Ask the pet store what their guarantee is on their fish. With petsmart if you bring in the dead fish within a certain time period they will replace it for free. I have had to do that a time or two when I got one that just wasn't right to begin with.

    You can add them slowly a few at a time as well. You've prepped yourself for this so you get to do it on your terms. If you want to take it slow while you get confident with them, that's how you should do it.

    I know how nerve wracking it can be to worry about the cost of your livestock. The first batch of fish I added to my 90 gallon tank after it cycled was about $130, and they all did great!

    Btw good call on the log. So much better than before!

    Also make sure you've got a pair of reptile tongs or a turkey baster when you buy the frogs so you can feed them. The store will likely recommend a tadpole pellet for them, but try to get some nice frozen bloodworms, beef heart or brine shrimp so you'll have something that will be easy to get them to eat after they've relaxed into their new home.

    Oh dear....how do you justify not having the latest Halo? I understand wanting a playstation, but over an xbox?
    You also have the obligatory Nintendo purchase with each new Zelda installment...

    lol, I was torn with this latest gen release. PS4 vs XB1. I had an XB360 before, but opted for PS4 this time. I missed out on some goodies on PS3, but I'll probably miss the new Halos. Meh... the sacrifices we make. As for Zelda... I haven't played that since Ocarina of Time (but I must admit that I have a Wii U). =/
