I was in South Korea during last summer break. I went to my parents’ cabin sometime. we have a small pond. I saw a bunch of tadpole. those looks cute and my cousin and I caught a tadpole and then we observed also searched mobile how they can alive and eat. we saw really tiny lollypop shape. It was his intestine. I didn’t know before the tadpole intestine looks like that. It was really interesting and amazing for us! when I watched a video during class I thought that All of ecosystem are interesting how they can alive and why they died, what they are going to be after death. everything can be interesting question without answer!!

Creating a frog aquarium is fun and rewarding.

Frogs are enjoyable pets that are fun to watch and fairly easy to care for. With just a basic aquarium, you can create a safe and natural ecosystem for your frog. Understanding your frog’s natural habitat will help you make the right choices as you select an aquarium size and shape, create land and water areas, add plants and adjust temperature and lighting.

Aquarium Basics

The ideal aquarium for your frog should be spacious and safe. An aquarium that’s 15 inches long by 10 inches wide will provide your frog a lot of space to explore. The aquarium should have a tight-fitting lid so that your frog can’t escape, and there should be plenty of air holes in the lid to provide proper ventilation. The aquarium should also provide your frog with at least one hiding spot, such as a stone cave or a piece of bark.

Natural Ecosystem

Most frogs are semi-aquatic, so they need an aquarium with land and water areas. To create a semi-aquatic ecosystem, use a partition to separate the bottom of the aquarium into two sections. Pour some clean, non-chlorinated water into one section. In the other section, use stones or topsoil to create a land area, and slope it gradually into the water so your frog can easily move from one section to the other. Consider adding live plants and other vegetation to provide your frog with a more natural habitat.

Temperature and Lighting

Frogs are cold-blooded, so their body temperature is based on the temperature of the air or water around them. Most frogs do well at normal room temperature in a range of 65 to 75 degrees. Add a heat lamp to your aquarium as necessary to keep your frog comfortable, and avoid placing the aquarium in an area where the temperature is subject to fluctuations, such as near a door or a heating/cooling unit. Provide appropriate lighting for your frog, based on its natural active periods.

Water Quality

Frogs breathe through their skin, so they are very sensitive to environmental contaminants. Using clean, pure water will help ensure your frog’s health. Remove chlorine and other chemicals from the water before you add it to your frog’s tank. To do so, let the water sit for 24 hours, or use a water treatment kit from a pet store. Also keep the water in your aquarium fresh by changing it every two to three days or when it is soiled.

  1. Tadpoles are really cool! My roommate and I live on campus, and we where heading back home. We looked down and saw all of these tadpoles coming out of a drain. Some were dead, some were still alive. We were thinking of helping the ones that were still alive by throwing them into the bayou, but the bayou is gross and polluted. It was really strange.

  2. I have always found frogs interesting, and just recently purchased an African Dwarf Frog for my fishtank, the main difference being they live primarily underwater. The variety of species and living conditions that frogs can adapt to astounds me!

  3. When I was young I raised frogs too. It was really easy to raise. Nice to know about their ecosystems and what is good for them. I think it wasn’t good for my frogs now I think about it, because I raised them in an apartment.
