I figured that I started one for my 20g, why not my 30g?
The photo above was taken before Phantom (the Betta) was transferred into the 20 gallon. He is a big fat bloodworm hog, the frogs don't stand a chance at all and I don't have time to hand feed everyday so for I moved him. (In the photo the tank is only half full as I was just intoducing the frogs to deeper water, it is not really safe to just "drop them in" when the water is so much deeper than before.)
I had these frogs when I was a kid but I didn't really know how to care for them at all, and as recommended by a pet shop employee I was feeding them fish flakes in a community tank... needless to say they didn't last long.
Anyways, I got two frogs from a friend who ordered them because "they're so cute" but didn't know how to care for them. She had 3 frogs in a 2 gallon tank with no heater or filter, and she knew she had no idea what she was doing so she gave them to me. Within a day one of them died from red-leg, luckily I was swift on treatment/setting up a proper tank for them and the remaining two survived.
Long story short, they grew into adults fast and I found that I had one male and one female.
They went through amplexus a few times a while ago and were successful with one batch of eggs. Unfortunately a power outage wiped out all but one tadpole, Lucky. I moved Lucky into the main tank. While ADF can
eat their eggs/tadpoles, they aren't very good at it. Well-fed adults in a heavily planted tank don't consume their offspring, even if they wanted
to it is doubtful that they'd catch them. (Anyone who has these frogs would agree)
So I decided that I am going to let this 30 gallon turn into an ADF colony, and I brought in two more frogs to widen the gene pool a little. Eventually I would like to change it into an Congo/African Swamp Biotope, but that's another story!
Anyways, I suppose that's about it for now, so here are some photos!

Above is Jamally, the female given to me by my friend.
Below is the new young male, Kazoo, shown in my avatar.
