I won't ever try to rescue another sick/injured fish again!

Everyone knows how awhile ago I found this poor little male fiddler crab that had lost 2 of his legs and the small claw he needs to eat, right?

And how I bought him so I could give him a fair shake at life?


WELL I WON'T BE DOING IT AGAIN!!

My african dwarf frog was laying on the gravel, having just coming down from dart to the surface for a breath of air when that little male fiddler that I thought so helpless jumped on my frog and KILLED HIM!!

THAT " HELPLESS " LITTLE :censor: :censor: :censor: :censor: JUST KILLED MY BELOVED FROG!

How did it kill the frog? I thought it was missing the large claw.

No it was missing its little claw that it uses to eat with. Which is why I felt so sorry for him because he can't eat with his big claw.


and he just jumped on top of the frog and stabbed the poor thing like a backally murder..

Remove him to some other tank and go buy 3 more frogs. Your frog needs a buddy!

You should probably tear the claw off, and then stab him with it. I think it will give him a real sense of how much it sucks to get speared. Once my dog bit me dad, my did bit the dog and the dog never bit anyone ever again.

The crab was doing what comes naturally to it. Not the crab's fault. I know you don't want to hear that, but you know it's true.

Sorry about your frog, but maybe the fiddlers are such good tankmates for frogs. The crabs would prolly be best off in a tank with fish only, and fast ones at that. Dannios and some medium tetras, something like that.

In case this post sounds kid of harsh, I am truely sorry about your frog, didn't mean to give you that impression.
