You really shouldn't house any fish with an African clawed frog. The frog will eat any fish that can fit in its large mouth.

Now, if it's an African dwarf frog, that's another story.

Once ADF's get older, they will attack and kill fish. I think they can be fine when they're quite young, which is probably why it worked out.

once again i do not own a dwarf species just a clawed species....its fully grown...maybe i should just drop the whole a 10gallon fish tank and just put either a tarantula or a redheaded desert centipede or a snake of some sort(of course a small snake)

Back on leaffish for a second. Word has it they positively require live foods. That's the leaffish proper, South American and Asian, not the climbing perches.

I think the climbing part is probably bunk. I read somewhere years and years ago that they could drag themselves out of the water and move short distances over land on their pectoral fins. I think someone got the ability to breathe atmospheric oxygen (like all labyrinth fish) confused with the ability to move about on land. The morphology is all wrong for that (though I could be wrong, it would surprise me if I were). Also, IIRC, I read this around the same time that people were going bug---k about clarias "walking catfish" "Invading" Florida and eating small dogs. No doubt they rode about the countryside on Cane Toads. Like I said, Bunk.
