The kit comes with two frogs — excitable, jumpy creatures that are great fun to watch. The “living gravel” that comes with the kit acts as a natural filtration system, so no additional chemicals, aeration or filters are required. The frogs need to be fed twice each week (which our kids love doing) and the food comes with your system. As for tank maintenance, the water only needs to be changed once every five or six months. Phew!
Wild Creations co-founders Rhett Powers and Peter Gasca worked with a marine scientist to develop breeding methods for the frogs, and they’re now the largest breeders for that species. They keep a veterinarian on staff to ensure the frogs are taken care of, and they never ship the frogs when weather conditions are extreme. If kids are pleading for a pet, the EcoAquarium is a great way to ease into pet ownership. It’s fun, compact and low maintenance. Why not bring one to the office or classroom, too? The fun is contagious.
