update on our tadpoles and snails

So much has been happening in the aquarium!


Bill and Ted have started growing legs! Unfortunately -- Ted, our big tadpole has one perfect leg and one leg that just seems to end.... The children are waiting for the other toes to appear but I don't think that they will. On the upside, this will lead us to a discussion of "differently abled" animals and people. I worry about Ted's eventual release back into his pond.....


The Princesses (our snails) are doing a great job of keeping the aquarium clean and algae free.


They have many more helpers -- someone has had babies -- we have at least 30 baby snails!

What kind of algae is that? Did you have Marimo moss ball in your aquarium?
