Regular readers of this space know that I own three rather boisterous dogs. Despite repeated requests, I have shied away from adding to our home’s pet population. My boys have asked for turtles, cats, hamsters, and even a ferret. Since most maintenance matters fall squarely in my lap I’ve been hesitant to take the plunge.
Well, this weekend we welcomed two mini-aquatic frogs into our family. Brookstone now offers a self-contained and self-cleaning ecosystem with two African dwarf frogs, a snail, and a bamboo plant. It’s very cool…you only have to feed them twice a week. And the biggest bonus…the snail acts as the janitor and cleans the aquarium while feeding itself.
The Frog-o-sphere (which was a birthday gift to my son from his grandparents) is silent, with the bamboo plant providing oxygen naturally.
Oh, another cool thing – Brookstone offers different color gravel options. Although the picture above shows blue gravel, our tank has bright red stones (a nice match for our living room décor). NOT THAT I WAS CONCERNED ABOUT COLOR COORDINATION!!!!!
Anyway, this is a very nice addition to our family. If you know of someone who is looking for companionship have them check out this fabulous new offering. It beats the classified ads 🙂
