    This is what Gronlaura does for new additions. Seems she's had some great success with acclimating her fish friends.

    that would probably be fine as well. Just keeping the brighter lights off while they get used to the tank is the important part. But do what slap does, set it to night setting and pause it when it is its darkest.

    I poured some thawed bloodworms into the tank and they're all out hunting for them now. Must be hungry.

    Are they going after them? How is the snail doing?

    You may want to start to feed slowly at first, no need to have the possibility of uneaten food spoiling the water too quickly. The snail should help with some leftovers, to a degree

    TBH, I don't know much about what's best for an ADF tank, the above is just my 2 cents...

    They are trying to find them. I'll feed again tomorrow when I turn the light on and can watch them hunt.

    As for the snail, he's been staying around the top of the tank all day. Not much movement. Oh, it's a Nerite snail btw.

    Watch your frogs close at feeding time. I have never kept them in a tank by themselves. In community tanks they don't tend to be adventurous enough to hunt their food down.

    If your frogs are seeking out their food at meal time then that's great, just make sure that you see everyone eating.

    It is common to accidentally starve a frog to death because you don't realize that the frog wasn't ambitious enough to go get its food.

    If everyone is already swarming the blood worms without you having to target feed individuals, you may not have to worry about that.
