Frog's In The Slammer

Yip, I had to put the frog in "froggie jail". We have a small fish tank that has a beta and aquatic frog. My six year old decided we needed to go to the pet store and purchase some little neon fish. We have had a few before and they either disappeared or died. I always assumed the beta was to blame. We had been told the neons were compatible with beta fish. Anyway, we went to the store and purchased 3 of them and placed them in the tank.

Later I we cleaning off the counters when I looked over at the tank. I did a double take, as it first appeared the frog had one of the decorative pebbles in it's mouth. On a closer look, it was half of a neon fish!! I quickly tapped the tank hoping to startle the frog into releasing it, in hopes I was "in time". Well he released it and the fish was dead. Sooooooo off to a new container he went! So now a vase with roots of a water lily is going to be born. The frogs new jail cell............lol.

Hope everyone has a Happy New Year!!!

I guess the neon fish was at the bottom of the food chain, poor thing. We have fish and we do notice the numbers going down slowly so they are not even safe with there own kind LOL

Happy New Year Tammy!!

Oh my lol!! I remember as a kid we had a decent little fish tank. We always had to keep buying the neons (because my brother and I thought they were the neatest things) and they kept dying. All the other fish seem to pick on them and kill them off, but I had never heard of a frog eating them whole like that!! LOL Oh he so deserves to be in solitary confinement!! :D Happy New Year!

That is hilarious!!! Does the frog need any filtration or anything like that?? We had to buy a tank divider for our two African Cichlids - one was always attacking the other! Now they are both happy and healthier!!!
