Quarantine is finally over, and I brought in a friend for my lone, lonely ADF here at work. Both are acting normally, ate like ravenous wolves, and are now alternately zipping around and zoning out, as ADFs do.
They come up to breathe every minute or so, occasionally dashing up and back down comically. They swim around and then go into a zen-like trance. On the whole, I'd say they're active about 75% of the day.
They eagerly take food from my fingers (or hemostats, if I don't feel like getting my arm wet.)
I feed them every other day, and do a 100% WC directly after, catching and removing them to a mug by hand (it seems the safest way to me.) I have two in a 2.5 gallon fishbowl, with a Hydor Mini Heater and no filtration nor aeration, just a soft plastic plant and some Indian Almond Leaves.
They seem to be extremely hardy, and supposedly can live 5-7 years. The African Dwarf Frog (not African Clawed Frog) stay about the size of a quarter. They're tied with kuhlis as my favorite aquatic creature now, and I never thought anything could be as cute as a kuhli.
