This looks like an American Green Treefrog to me. Pretty common in the pet trade and the South Eastern US.

All uneaten food should be removed immediately.



Fish tend to out-compete ADF for food, as they are notoriously slow eaters. Just something to keep in mind.

Free frog food.. Wouldn't worry. Any small hijacker in your plants being actively hunted in your plants probably won't thrive long in a small enclosed system such as an aquarium.

True. I will go purchase the Maracyn and dose it if I see the red cyano appear again (I want to see if my manual removal helps first). H2O2 seems to do a great job of killing it too, all my plants...

My only gripe against that method is some kind of antibiotic-resistant bacteria infesting my tank.

Should I remove the frogs when dosing maracyn?

I wouldn't dose CO2 or fertilizers into an Axie tank. They are pretty sensitive creatures.

Also Axolotls are known to escape from tanks, I would suggest a lid of some sort.

Amphibians are really best housed in species only tanks, as a rule of thumb.
