hello everyone! long time no talk.

im teaching 1st grade special ed in new york city, so i havent had much leisure time since say... july lol

my mom is taking care of my frogs in connecticut and shes doing a great job i think. shes one of those really meticulous people lol

anyway, she called me all upset today. she found two of these centipede type things in the water bowl once last week but thought nothing and flushed em when changing the water. now she sees two of them again. she is worried the frogs have worms. i have panacur, baytril, and some other thing meta-something (appetite stimulant) all on hand if necessary.

she took pics, i have never seen these in my tank before. have you all?
what should be done? if it requires cleaning only thats easy. but is this a problem?








thanks so much for all your help!

As far as I understand it centipedes are carnivorous and millipedes eat decaying matter, the pics you show look like millipedes but I would need to see the head more clearly.They probably came in plants or mulch, cleaning should fix, Bill

Correct Bill. Centipedes are also venomous. We have some crazy ones out here in Asia.


Shhhhhhoe
Don't blame the question when you're the stupid one.

ok so if they are in fact centipedes, that is bad for my frogs! but if millipedes it should be alright?

either way, im going to do a thorough clean. its just strange they showed up now so suddenly. the tank hasnt been added to since about august.

my mom is going to take a better pic of the head if she sees another.

thanks!
