Hi everybody. I'm doing alright, it's just tough losing your favorite pet. My tank is in a bit of disarray, I plopped all of my plants back into the water to prevent them from drying out. Almost all wood and rocks are out of the tank right now. It's still running of course, because Reggie is in there, but it is all torn apart.

I think eventually I'm going to go get some different rocks now that the stores have opened up. Then redo the tank (but still the same style as I usually keep it at). Then once I'm ready I'll go get some more frogs. A few of them, hopefully. I'd love to get a blonde one online too. I'm curious how they will behave in groups.

The only thing I'm dreading is whether the new frogs I will get have chytrid. Any new frog is a roll of the dice, unfortunately-- especially if they come from different sources. I got lucky with Crash and Eddie. I think what I'll do is get two or so frogs from one place, then get a blonde one online. I'll keep the two typical-colored frogs in the tank and then quarantine the blonde frog in my bucket for 2 months. They say that's how long it takes to ensure new frogs don't have the chytrid fungus.

Thank you for all of your kind words. I am going to be making a memorial video for Eddie soon, cause he had such a little personality and I feel like he needs to be remembered. He was the best little man.

Do ADFs normally come with the chytrid fungus or whatever it is?

Chytridiomycosis is the full name, it's basically a fatal fungus that spreads super easy. Think of the contagion levels of corona in humans. It's quite common for frogs in mass breeding facilities to have it and it's almost always fatal. The frog can not show signs of it for up to 2 months, so it's extremely important to properly quarantine new frogs before letting them mingle with healthy ones.
