Comments: The adult Bullfrog must have a half water half land tank. The Tadpole is very hardy and must have all water, it can live in the adult tank as long as there is enough water. I have found that the Bullfrog tadpole can acquire Ich and it will not respond to conventional chemicals treatments. You must raise the temperature and wait.
