Thanks for both of your input. I will use the information when I build the tank.

Here is the extra info regarding the frog. First, I think it is a Southern Leopard Frog, but I'm not 100% certain since I just did my best to identify it from what I read on the internet. The frog came out of the Christiana River in Delaware. It overflows in areas and leaves behind shallow pools which dry out when it gets very hot. We rescued about 10 or so tadpoles from the mud. So far 5 have changed into normal frogs, but this one was mutated. We've seen a lot of other frogs this summer, but no other mutated ones, so I can't say I've noticed any wide spread mutations. If the subject interests you, I found the following web site when I was trying to ID the frog. They have a section were you can file a report if you find a mutated amphibian, and when I uploaded our picture I was able to browse their ftp site and see what others had submitted.

I hope I can keep it alive, so far I don't think it has eaten anything, but I'll keep trying.
