Occidozyga lima

30. November 2007

(30.Nov.2007) From now available on a regular base : Occidozyga lima, the floating frog. These funny guys come from Indonesia. They are easy to keep and should be kept in small groups of at least 10 pieces. They only grow up to 3-4cm and show no sexual dimorphism. They eat all kind of small flies like Drosophila, but also frozen food will be accepted. After a while you can also feed them with a pincer, if you try patiently. Most of the time they are floating on the surface of the water, but you should give them the possibility to leave the water with some “swimming isles”. The only thing you should care for is there “jump ability”, so the tanke must be closed correctly.
