Aww that's too bad. Was hoping I could get one. Maybe next time you go to the lfs you could ask them for the brand name? And I third the update!

Here's an update. I have been super lazy with my tanks. Just letting them grow out. I got a bit of green hair algae in the Modern Planter that I'm dealing with. All the PFRs are out of this tank, I'm switching shrimps. I have some red rili babies in there and some blue rilis on the way.

Frog Tank. The UG is almost grown in. Glosso also growing well. Added Moss to the back and some Red Ludwigas from the other tank. I'm keeping this tank on the dry side to accommodate the frogs. I'm about 2 weeks out from getting my frog. Started a fly culture this weekend preparing for Varadaros arrival.

Good news unlike my first Erio Ben Ba Wah, this one is thriving emmersed.

Looks nice, man! I see the tonina is growing well. I may throw the stems of Tonina that I got from Nick into my emersed, since they seem to dislike my 75g.

What kind of care is necessary for the frog? How much are they?

The biggest care for frogs is culturing the wingless fruit flies and getting a suitable habitat. A real frog tank is a Vivarium, but this will do. The frogs range from $35 to well...a couple of hundred depending on the frog. I swung a trade with Alpha Pro Breeders one of the sponsors for some shrimps when he posted on the SnS. He's selling the Varadaros for $95.00 each.

Wow, I can't believe I'm just now stumbling upon this journal of your tanks! Everything looks awesome! Your PFRs are doing just dandy in my tank, btw.

How do you like that Fluval Stratum? I need to switch out my crumbling Aquasoil and since I've been waiting for months for ADA dealers to get the new and improved stuff in, I'm starting to look at something like the Fluval or that new Up Aqua soil, which looks pretty similar.

That's really cool. I want a frog for chrismas . Where'd you get the rocks? And also, you still have at least 2 PFRs left. Last pic and third to lat pic, in the moss.

Are you using RO? The Tonias that Nick gave me started to melt when I switch to tap. They were thriving when I was using RO.

I collected the rocks this summer when I was camping. Those are baby red rilis. There is one male PFR left. The rest are in Digsy's tanks. LOL...

Hey Digsy, thanks for stopping by. The good thing about stratum is that is looks awesome. Really black and uniformed granules. The bad thing is that it won't buffer your water after a few months and there are no nutrients for plants. OK for Neos...not that great for Caridinas IMO, unless you put Aquasoil under the Stratum.
