Haha, thanks guys, yeah I really like my frogs. Plus they are super-easy to care for. Just need a heating pad and fresh water, and come crickets/other bugs every other couple days. If anyone is looking to get into caring for reptiles/amphibians, I really recommend White'* Tree Frogs. They cost about $40 CAD each, and are a really good starter pet, as they are incredibly hardy and easy to care for. Plus they look cool and are really active later in the evening.

PeterG22000: What kind of turtle do you have? Is it a Red-Ear Slider?

VigCS: No mammels, I am a renter so although my current place would allow for a dog or cat, there'* no guarentee that my next place would. Most people are fairly accepting of reptiles/amphibians and fish (just as long as there are no snakes involved)

JDB: One can get an actual "Poison Dart Frog," as they aren't really poisonous to humans, they simply secrete a mild "poison" from their skin which (worst-case) for humans usually means a mild rash. They are very hard to care for and demanding though.

toastedoats: Yeah, I am really not a fan of my fish. I like cichlids, but really prefer the colour and variety of African Cichlids. The plan is to slowly give away my cichlids(although it'* hard because no one wants Convicts, understandably), keep my Pleco, and then get some other fish, probably African cichlids.

Heh. I have a red eared slider currently.

He'* in a 20 gallon tank along with dinner. Dinner being about 12 gold fish that he picks off when he'* hungry. There'* also the maintanence division which consists of 4 snails and a couple of those sucker fish that swim around eating the crap. All in all the tank stays in good shape as long as my turtle doesn't decide to start eating the snails and sucker fish.

Do you feed the "sucker" fish? It'* a little known fact that they don't actually thrive of eating just the crap, they do need other food, I recommend an Algae wafer every couple days.

fish are a lot of work and costly. I had a 75 gal tank for years.
I use to keep oscars, pikes, aligator gar and a shovel nose catfish.
as well as others over the years.
all ate goldfish for dinner
