FBT Cricket Concern
I've recent|y purchased a Fire Belly Toad (Fire Belly Frog? I don't know, I'm finding mixed results on whether they're toads or frogs.) The pet store sold me a dozen "small size" crickets, saying that's what they'd been feeding the tank of frog/toads, and most sites I researched claimed crickets were an acceptable food source.
One curiosity came into my mind on the way home, though. If the habitat is about 50/50 land/water, isn't there a good chance the crickets will jump into the water and drown before the frog/toad catches them? Or will the hungry creature probably see and recognize the food before it has a chance to die, even if it falls into the water? Does anyone have experience with seeing their FBT catch crickets even if they fall/jump in the water?
Maybe I'm too paranoid and nervous about the new pet. Anyways, any help appreciated.
A severe lack of trichogaster.
Just because your Gourami is sick does not mean it is always Iridovirus, DGIV, Gourami Disease, et cetera.
Look at all the other factors in your tank before coming to this conclusion.
