Alrighty, waiting it is then. I just worry is all. This is my first time with frogs and I don't know their behavior just yet. I will keep out of the terraium unless its for a water change. Don't have to bother Stretch when I do that. He hides and I just quickly do my thing. I scoop out the other two taddies and plants, suck the water out, rinse, suck again and replace. Takes all of 15 mins thanks to the wet vac.
The crickets we got were very tiny, a little smaller than the width of Stretches head.
On another note. I have moved the 3rd taddie to the 10 gallon on it's own to see if it'll grow. I don't know if it's just stunted because of the hormones that were mentioned in one of the responces to my other post or if it's sickly. It doesn't move around much at all. Just sits there on the bottom of the tank for a long time then sometimes "slowly" wiggles itself to another spot. I haven't noticed it eating either and I've been offering a couple frog/tad bites and even an algea sinking wafer (for the Cory Cats I used to have... which the other taddies seem to LOVE!) I'm going to get a new filter because the old one I had keeled over on me so right now I'm just doing daily water chages. (I'll get the new filter tonight) We've had this taddie for about 3 weeks now and it was the 3rd to biggest. The smallest one has passed it up in growth and already has some good back legs going. This one doesn't even have little toes sticking out. It doesn't look exactly like the others either. It's tail is thinner and doesn't have the fanning fin parts (does that make sense?) Is there an chance that it isn't a leo after all? It's a light tanish color with LOTS of dark brown speckles. The "head" is just about an inch and the tail is just over an inch. I'll try and get a picture if anyone thinks that will help.
Thanks all, you have all been a GREAT help!!
