    I only have 2 right at the moment, wanted to try them out in a community with my betta and it seems to be going well, they've been together for almost a month and no issues. Gonna add some snails I think as well. I well have to try the tubifex worms with them! I find they are only really active in short bursts (in all honesty I wasn't that interested in them at first because I thought they never moved haha) did you find that with yours? I thought at first it was because I didn't have a heater for them (oops!) but now I have one installed and they are still pretty lazy most of the time lol. Definitely going to add another two though, I think 4 of them will add a lot more activity, hopefully the 4 plus my betta won't be too over crowded.

    The worms come in cubes that you can press to the glass and they stick to it. I put a cube right at gravel level and they were swarming it in five minutes, ive never seen them get excited over anything. Theyd grab a mouthful and spaz out like crazy trying to pull some off the cube, it was hilarious.

    I have 8 of them now in a 20 gal with a few fish and some snails. The frogs seem to like company, theyre always crawling all over each other.

    VEry nice,

    as for the inactivity that's quite normal. The life of many frog species is spent sitting waiting, it's only when foods involved that they come to life lol

    Oh my goodness that was awesome! I am definitely going to have to try those out with them. I just got them a tubifex worm/earthworm flake combination (which smells awful by the way) but I'm definitely going to pick up the cubes next time I'm out.

    By times theyll kick each other around and pretty much freak right out over it. The first time I gave it to them was hilarious.

    Theyre funny little critters. They can smell it (or something) from across the tank and head over, but then they need to practically bump their snout into the cube before they actually find it. Seems like their eyesight is pretty poor ha ha.
