Substrate and Sinking Food
I was so thrilled to see this board, as I have had much difficulty getting a straight answer to my question at specialty stores!
I have two african dwarf frogs in my aquarium, with the "normal" aquarium gravel from wal-mart. I was originally given HBH Shrimp Pellets to feed the frogs, but read online that they are for sucker-fish, not frogs. So I got the HBH Frog and Tadpole Bites. My problem is that the Frog Bites are so small they fall between the pieces of gravel long before the frogs find them. I didn't want to feed them the wrong food, so the shrimp pellets stayed out of the tank. Eventually my poor little frogs got so skinny I could see the hollows between their ribs and spine. I have started to feed the larger shrimp pellets just so they will actually be able to eat SOMETHING, but I know that it is not what they're supposed to be getting. I don't have the means to deal with bloodworms, which would probably be the best option.
Can anyone suggest what substrate/food combination to use for my favorite little guys?
The 1.5 gallon tank also has two male fancy guppies and one snail about the size of a marble. (yes, I know they are a little over crowded, but I do clean the tank religiously)
Thanks so much!!!
