Get The Holidays Hopping With A Jewel Ecoaquarium All-in-One Kit

froggy final 1

In our home, with four kids, we are never short on pets. At one time or another we've had dogs, a cat, two hermit crabs, and a whole host of fish mixed in with the bunch. Now, the Crayne family has welcomed two African Dwarf Frogs into our home and everyone couldn't be more excited to have another pet to love. Overall, my kids do really well with taking care of all their animals on their own, which says a lot about how much all of these creatures are loved. What I enjoy most is seeing the joy on my kids faces as they take care of their pets, and knowing, that along with all of the fun they are having, they are also learning a little bit of responsibility and the value of life, no matter how small.

Disclosure: I received the item above at no cost to facilitate this review.

 Before I had my Wild Creations Jewel Ecoaquarium shipped to me, I wanted to make sure that my new amphibious friends would be well taken care of during shipment. The folks at Wild Creations assured me that the care during shipment of their frogs is of the utmost importance and priority.  

As for shipping procedures, you can note that we are one of the few live animal shippers for FedEx and UPS. We have shipped well over two million frogs over the past eight years. We take great efforts to assure that our frogs are comfortable when shipped, by shipping them with an anti-fungal and antibiotic mix, which is why you will see a slight blue tint to your water. Our frogs are always shipped overnight and in insulated packaging. In the winter, we ship with a heat pack and in the summer, a cool pack. Again, the well being of our frogs is a priority for us, and we have worked closely with several organizations and professionals, including a local veterinarian who has a masters degree in herpetology (literally a frog expert), to make certain our shipping protocol is the best in the industry. - Wild Creations

When my Jewel Ecoaquarium arrived, my frogs came just as Wild Creations said they would and I was eager to get it put their new tank together and introduce my new froggy friends to their new home. Wild Creations has a number of African Dwarf Ecoaquariums, one to suit every wish and budget. Currently, Wild Creations sells two distinct types of Ecoaquariums, the Jewel Ecoaquarium and the Classic Ecoaquarium (both available for an upgrade to All-in-One Kits). To take a closer look at the ecoaquariums click HERE.

  The top of the line Jewel Ecoaquariums All-in-One Kit includes:
  •        1 4"x6" Jewel EcoAquarium tank with Lid 
  •      2 African Dwarf Frogs
  •      1 Lucky Bamboo plant
  •      1 pack Living Gravel
  •      1 pack Colored Gravel (Your choice of colors)
  •      1 Decorative Rock
  •      1 Black Plastic Base
  •      1 Care Kit (Water Removal Device, Dip Net, 1 year of Frog Food)
The Ecoaquariums are super easy to set up and even more easy to upkeep! For set up, I simply rinsed out the tank, the gravel (in a strainer) and my bamboo. I also purchased a gallon of water from the grocery store instead of using the tap water out of my sink (we currently have city water, and well, you just never know what might be in there). I first put down the living gravel, tucked in my bamboo, and then topped it with the colored gravel. I placed in my decorative rocks. Between the swirling colors of the deco. rocks and the bright colored gravel, my Jewel Ecoaquarium was really standing out! Finally, I added the water (room temperature) and finally my frogs. They immediately swam around checking out their new digs and I gotta say, they seem pretty pleased! Check out Wild Creations set up video below!


As a Mom I greatly appreciate the lengths that Wild Creations has taken to provide an educational pet experience for my family, from beginning to end. The living gravel breaks down frog waste and uneaten food, the bamboo provides oxygen for the tank, and the frogs are not only fun to watch, but very easy to keep. We still have yet to pick out the perfect name for our new froggy friends! Comment below with your ideas for the perfect Frog names!
