Wild Creations EcoAquarium Review & Giveaway *CLOSED*



We have a lot of pets. Since we'll be homeschooling I think this is great for Avery to see how different animals live and what they need. We have a 47 gallon fish tank with 30 fish in it. 7 Hermit Crabs (yes, Jon got 2 more), Avery has 1 fish in her room, we have 2 dogs and NOW we're the proud owners of Dora and Minnie the Frogs from Wild Creations.

This product is great. Jon actually bought one from Brookstone in January for his desk at work. He loves it and says these little guys provide hours of entertainment. So I asked Wild Creations if they'd be willing to send us one for home, and they did. Avery loves Dora and Minnie the frogs. 
Here's the set up process
Take the Bag with the frogs in it and stick in a bowl with room temperature spring water in it so they can get used to the climate
Then you add in the Living Gravel (brown one)
Then you rinse off the decorative gravel in spring water and add that
Rinse off the Bamboo plant and stick in the corner. Make sure it's touching the bottom
Rinse off the Rock and add it
Then fill with Spring Water. Slowly pour it over the rock or bamboo so it doesn't mess up the stones
After about 20 minutes or so, add your new little pets and put the lid on.
These are the easiest pets ever. They require HARDLY any cleaning at all. 4 times a year you have to use the bastor it came with and take out like 80% of the water and then add fresh spring water. You can disturb the rocks and they can all get mixed together. They each get 2 pellets of food twice a week. Super easy to care for. We've set a schedule of MondayTuesday and Friday. It's easy that way and when we're busy on the weekend we don't have to worry about feeding them.

They are great to watch and care for. I think when we set this up Avery watched them for a total of like 4 hours that day and probably 5-6 the next. She loves them and says hi to them every morning when she wakes up.

The living gravel absorbs up the poo and extra food, the Bamboo roots then "eat" the extra stuff and the top of the plant hangs out of the water and then turns it into oxygen. It keeps the tank clean. I wonder how hard the clean up will be. Probably easy!

Price: $30 for this kit I received. Totally worth it. Even if the frogs Die. They are about $2.99 at any local aquarium (pet stores are too expensive) You need an aquarium store. So it's pretty easy to maintain and take care of. 

Overall: ***** Avery loves it, I love to watch them while I'm sewing or blogging. In fact they're swimming around playfully right now!! Actually hopping on each other. They're fun in general. Avery had fun learning about the ECO portion of it and since we're trying to be more environmentally friendly this was fun to explain to her. 

Want your own without waiting for the Giveaway to conclude? Now through July 31st use the Code BLOGGER (case sensitive, all caps) at checkout to receive $10 off on the Jewel Starter Kit. The jewel is bigger than this one and is $39.99 normally!
