We have a White's tree frog and an American toad, and feed live crickets to both. We've had good success with this box, which is available at pet stores: The box comes with a very nice mechanism for transferring the crickets to your frog cage. In the picture, you can see the two black tubes sticking out. The tubes are capped on one end and removable. ...

There are several problems I can see with putting an Axolotl and a Pleco together. Space. Axolotls generally get to be about 12-14 inches in length, while common plecos will get to be about 2 feet long when they're fully grown. A common pleco itself needs a minimum of a 40 gallon(about 150 litre) aquarium. Temperature. Axolotls are naturally from coldwater ...

Consistency is key Moving fish/Amphibians is always going to be stressful for them. The best thing you can do to ensure that they are stressed as little as possible is to keep the conditions as similar as you can during the transport and beyond. Your key question is about the process of re-cycling the existing tank after the move. This shouldn't be ...

Information specific to Indonesian floating frogs is somewhat thin on the ground. However, a common guideline for fish and other aquatic pets is "as much as they can eat in two minutes". The number of crickets they can eat will also depend on the size of the crickets. I'm generally in favour of offering a varied diet. Indonesian floating frogs tend to ...

Reviews help a lot, so when you're looking, make sure you can read what other people are saying they received. If there aren't any reviews, it's just a shot in the dark. A lot of places will only take orders on Mondays through Wednesdays, so that the crickets won't be sitting in a box over the weekend. Something to keep in mind though, is that crickets have ...

It is generally not recommended to keep any type of fish with Axolotls as they can nip at their gills or otherwise stress the axolotl. Plecos are definitely not compatible with axolotls for several reasons. One is the difference in needs for ideal living environment. Plecos thrive at warmer temperatures than are safe for an axolotl. The most important ...

As far as the tank goes, sirens can grow up to 24 inches so get at least 3 times their length as the size of the tank. They live in shallow water so you don't need to fill the entire tank. Temperature isn't that important as they are used to living in shallow pools of water. Get the finest gravel you can get because they like to burrow. Ideally you would ...

Water changes will indeed reduce nitrate levels within your tank and with 80ppm you'll definitely want to reduce that as soon as you can. You could increase the percentage of your water changes, but one thing that I've found has helped a lot is growing a plant such as pothos (formally referred to as Pothos aureus, also commonly known as devil's ivy) in the ...

It will not harm your frog. It just simply means your frog is a male. It is not know what these spots (which are actually glands) are used for though. Here's a picture!

It's the same as when moving with fish really. Make sure the filter media remain submerge in water. For a short journey (as 1h) no need to have air pump running. Make you animal comfortable. This means a big enough container (bag, tupperware, etc) partially filled with water. Do the moving. You can empty the tank completely. Refill with de-chlorinated water ...

It sounds like your frog is in estivation As you've not provided an image yet or any specific tank information, I'll give an answer with general information on how your tank should be set up: Pacman frogs should be kept between 25 - 31 °C (77 - 88 °F). If you have a UVB light it should only be on for 12 hours maximum. Ensure your tank is moist as they need ...

If you are going to reuse for yourself, absolutely do a bleach cleaning! Though for sanitary reasons I would purchase a second turkey baster for yourself and keep the one for blood worms solely for your axolotl. If it is going to stay strictly for your axolotl then a regular cleaning with mild dish soap and hot water is fine (be sure to rinse well!). ...

Test your tap water for nitrates to be sure that isn't contributing to your problem. And yes, more frequent water changes can help with keeping nitrate levels down. The addition of ghost shrimp can also help, but they may not last long as axolotls tend to find them very tasty. I have a similar issue in my tank (high nitrates, close to 0 ammonia/nitrites). ...

The way to do this is to cut back the oldest leaves if it is possible,This depends on the type of plant you have. If this is impossible to do you have to rinse it in cold water and fully submerge the plant for about 15 minutes. You will need to remove the soil from the roots of your plant and replace it with a 50/50 mix of sand and unfertilized soil. A ...

I purchased some vestigial fruit flies, which they happily pursue and consume.

The first thing I would do is put the frog into a quarantine tank so that it doesn't affect your other frog or fish. My first thought was that it was possibly a reaction to an ammonia spike, sometimes called an ammonia burn it can be caused by something as simple as changing the filter, but if you've recently tested your water and it's fine then that might ...

I keep a golden bristle nosed pleco in my tank along with two Axolotls. They have lived together for almost a year now with no problems hardly ever. I would only keep these types of Plecos with Axolotls because they are a lot shyer than most plecos and they live in colder conditions than all other plecos. Other plecos aren’t great though.

I don't have any experience with this particular species, but I do currently keep some other frogs. This article confirmed what I suspected about their diet; crickets are the best thing to feed them. Sprinkle some reptile vitamins on the crickets before you give them to the frog. If you've never used crickets as live food before, you might want to check ...
