Warm welcome to AA.

Did you cycle the tank? How often are you doing water changes?

Just so you know your clawed frog when it grows is going to eat your minnow.

Ok.. im guessing you joined the AA for help and information on fish keeping?
Did you see the questions i asked, have you cycled either of these tanks and how much and how often are you doing water changes? You responded to my statement but didnt answer the questions.

I ask because you mention that youre having trouble keeping anything else alive which leads me to believe your tank isn't cycled. Putting fish into a tank that isnt cycled is going to cause death without regular water changes.

I think she was just introducing herself. She never said she couldnt keep fish alive. Welcome to the forum.

When I said that's all I can take care of I meant that I between school and my job I can only handle these Guys at the moment and only them. I do water changes one a week. Sometimes twice.
