Try not to worry to much, My frog will sometimes just seem to float at the top of the tank, and I look over and freak out, then I remember that he does it all the time. Pretty much do as they say and watch him. Also, try feeding the frogs some tubeflex worms, mine loves them. Also the betta can get in on that to!

That is why I said 'normal'. Current ripping through the tank is not good, but that is not the 'normal' tank. If the water falls and inch or so, that is fine. I don't think it is normal for the water to fall four inches. Avoid extreams and you will be fine with your frogs.55 gallon planted community

My frogs do okay with the current from my HOBs on my 55-granted, the water only drops about a finger width, but all the same they spend most of their time on the bottom of the tank. They do the 'moment of zen' thing where they stretch out their limbs all the time, you get used to it after a while. I have a pretty heavily planted tank and I do see them on occasion resting on a large leaf or stem as opposed to the bottom."Never Underestimate the Power of Stupid People in Large Numbers"

Thank you all sooooooo very much. I am feeling much better. Can't say enough about the wonderful info (not to mention your extreme patience) I've rec'd here. Hopefully I've learned enough that my frogs will live a long happy life!

Personally I won't use an HOB on a frog tank at all just for that reason
