    Hi Saintly, will the shrimps be ok with the frogs and do you had them say 5 at a time or all at one go?

    Those frogs are such an issue, the true dwarfs drown because anything more powerful than a sponge filter is too strong for them to swim against and the ones that aren't end up huge ugly fish eaters. :thumbdown:

    I would go easy on the ottos, I have 2 in my 54L, I find that there isn't enough food around to support more in my tank, I had more but they died, and I tried feeding MANY different foods but they don't seem to pick up on it at all.

    The two I have are nice and fat and healthy, and have been with me for about 3 years! :D
