Cleaning: We use a gravel vac to clean the tank by removing about half of the water while stirring up the gravel to remove sediment. Then replacing with the same amount of spring water or dechlorinated tap water.
Care of Froglets and Adult Bullfrogs
When the tadpoles developed into froglets and then adults, we made minor changes to the tank setup. The water level was lowered so that the tank was only 1/2 full and a brick was placed on top of an upside down pot to provide a place that the frogs can leave the water. The frogs eat earthworms, which we typically cut in half and place in a dish we made from the plastic lid of a container, with small holes drilled into it so that the dish doesn't fill with water.
Don't Release Your Bullfrogs Outside!
Even if bullfrogs are native to where you live, it is NOT a good idea to release them into the wild. See the Carolina Biological Supply advisory sheet at bottom of page for more information.
