{May 26, 2014}   Roxy and Trevor

I finally got my mothers day gift this weekend. I didn’t get it mothers day because I had to decide what I wanted and the kind of set up I wanted. I found a nice glass 5 gallon tank online and got it last week. Sunday me and the two older kids went to the pet shop and got the frogs.

I talked to the guy there and he said basically all I needed was to put them in a tank with spring water and they would do great. Thats what I done, so far they are doing good. They didn’t eat last night but probably from being moved and in a new place. Today they have been active. They have been swimming around the tank hiding in the pots and around them and exploring. I don’t have a lot in the tank. I got one live plant a couple of the small terracotta flower pots and the bases to sit them on. The posts to hide in and the bases to put their food on to feed them. This way it don’t get in the rocks and they have a hard time finding it.

The kids were trying to pick out names for them and boy did they come up with some names. They wanted to give on my dad’s name and one baby girl’s dad’s name. R.C’s name. But they don’t really know R.C by his first name because all his friends and family call him by his middle name. Only time he goes by his first name is at work. I don’t think they really thought of it. I asked them why they picked them two names they just said because they go together.

I am not 100% sure but I think I picked out a male and a female. It is really hard to tell by looking at them and in the tank at the store. I didn’t even think they had any until I asked the guy. I he reach into the fish tank a moved this little thing they had in there and they all scattered around the tank. They were in the back. I know that the males are smaller than the females. There were two left sitting together in the corner one was bigger than the other so I took them two. I figured they were together and stayed together they would get along pretty good in the tank. I am hoping since one was larger than the other they are mates and not the same. One could be younger but guessing they are the same age.

I named them Roxy and Trevor. I don’t know why it came to me the other day when I was thinking about names. I liked Roxy and Trevor off of the show Army Wives. I have looked at other names and tried to come up with two I like but haven’t really found any. I liked freckle but I don’t know what name I would put with it for a boy.
