nope, hasn't happened, which is odd, because i am a mechanic and i ALWAYS have cuts on my hands. well, not really hands, claws really....lol but the key is not stressing the frog out when you handle them. i always wash my hands forst, then wet them in their tank water, then handle them very gently. no problems. even with my red eye tree frog, which are very sensitive

Well that is good then. If it happened once it'd make for handling that much more difficult the next time (I'd assume anyway)

Good looking tank & very happy looking froggies! I had a pair of White's & a pair of Grey tree frogs from my back yard in a 29 gallon standard for about 11 years. I still get Grey tree frogs around the backyard to this day. I also get grass frogs, leopard frogs & spring peeprs all the time. The yard's loaded with froggies!

Thanks Tommy! I love my white's, they are much more entertaining than any of my other frogs. I may try to get you to catch a couple greys for me in the spring, so don't go telling me the yard is filled with them.....lol

You could do a shrimp palu in the hex. Heck, they can go months just feeding on the natural biofilm in the tank. Perfect for a busy guy like you.

Bad news, the bowfront has to wait. I have to tear this sucker apart completely to make some repairs. The land section on the left is lifting. A few repairs failed. I figure that since i need to tear it apart, i might as well do a re-design. I love this tank, but i still think i can do so much more with the space i have.

Hey Bill - The 125 looks awesome! I really like it.

Glad you're working on the bowfront finally. I thought you were going to start with this one - lol
