My Frog vanished into thin air - Crazy
Got some Congo Tetras
Cant wait to set up the new digs.
Congrats on the new tank! You'll be very happy with it as bigger tanks are MUCH easier o keep up given the right equipment.
Your frog no doubt was eaten by any one of those fish. Sounds like it was an ADF and they have terrible eyesight and easily preyed upon by any fish bigger then it. They only seem to work in very peaceful tanks with lots of cover or bet off by themselves.

you are probably right but none of the fish ever bothered him at all. The EBJD is too small and the red head wont even eat a guppy. I am puzzled a bit
Agent 13 - I might have lots of questions over the coming weeks so I could use your mentoring.

I just got back from the pet store and was planning on just buying some food for the fish but then I saw they had some Electric Pink Jack Dempseys. Never seen em before and they were very nice little fish so I bought one - This means my cichlid count for the 180 is complete at 3. He/She will need to grow a bit it goes into the big tank though. The 55 gallon will be its home for a while.
