frogdog Posted January 3 Share Posted January 3 Hi hobbyists! I'm currently in the dreaming/planning/researching stage of a planted 10G setup (previous fishkeeping experience included). I will be moving very slowly to give my tank and plants time to mature, with the added benefit that my money will be spent over a longer period of time, but I do have my heart all but set on 2-3 African dwarf frogs (with the plan to eventually add fish, which I am less decided on... chili rasboras? dwarf/honey gourami?). I enjoy occasional travel and extended camping/backpacking trips (up to 7-10 days), and I would love to hear from experienced keepers how they prepare and manage time away from home in regards to their ADFs. It is not my intention to regularly abandon them, but to gain an understanding of how long I could leave them without supervision and still have happy, healthy frogs. I want to make sure they will be a good fit for my lifestyle. I have researched feeding relatively thoroughly (I've noticed recommendations for the species vary considerably, hence why I am here!), and will likely feed live or frozen food 3-4 times per week, but I want to know how long I could leave the frogs unattended. Is it possible, and safe, to overfeed them slightly for a week or two prior to leaving, to give them some fat reserves to burn? Alternatively, could I "over-stock" live black worms to give them an extended food supply that won't rot and reduce water quality? What are the temporal limitations to these methods, if viable? Many thanks! - a prospective frog mom Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
