So I wanted to share our last months experiences with eveyone to show just how amazing these little animals are. One month ago, we were evacuated from Fort McMurray because of the Forrest fires. We both work south of town, so when we got the notice to evacuate, we tried to get back into town so we could get some personal papers, rescue the frog, and take some coral out of our reef tank. Unfortunately, by the time we got back to town, the flames were all the way across the highway, so we were unable to retrieve anything from our home, and headed south to wait out the fire. After one month, on the 2nd, we were finally able to return to our home to assess the damage. Expecting the worst, after a full month with no food or misting (the reservoir for the mister only lasts about 10 days), we had assumed that we would be returning to a dead Viv and frog. As soon as we got into the house, the first thing I did was open the front door and manually mist the tank heavily. After pulling a couple handfuls of dead plants out, and continuous misting, up out of the substrate, rises our little Arena Blanca. He had buried himself into the sub to stay hydrated and had dug up a lot of it to hunt springs and iso's. He was very skinny, but immediately came out to see if we were feeding him. We packed up our entire condo, and moved all of our non damaged stuff back down to Calgary. Once we were here, we were able to make a run down to Jungle Jewel Exotics to pick up flies, springs, and pods to stock up the tank that he had cleared out. Dawn and Lucas are such great people that they actually gave us the fly cultures for free and told us "after him surviving something like that, his first meal has to be on us". So we wanted to thank them again, jungle jewel is absolutely the best, and love all their animals. It has been 5 days now, and luckily our beautiful little arena Blanca is fattening back up! I had to share this experience with everyone, we are absolutely blown away at how incredible these little animals are. We were in the process of making a new 18x18x18 Viv for some new frogs, but after this ordeal, we decided that the new big tank, will be for this little guy and 2 more friends. We think he deserves it!
