These guys are my two AFC's! Actually, I believe they are girls!
Ive had them for about eight months, and they havent grown at all. I bought them as Dwarf Frogs, and quickly learned i was dead wrong! The lfs i went to said that they get them all the time, and have never had any grow. Im guessing they are a genetic defect, or a purposefully man made mini ACF, but i love em just the same!
Theyve been housed with my betta since i got him, and neither the frogs nor the betta seem to have any aggression towards each other. My betta actually likes to poke them, when they do their 'im dead' pose, to see if their okay!
They are currently housed in a 14 gallon, with a few ghost shrimp. the grids that you see floating on top of the water actually come from an aquatic plant i took apart. the frogs like to have something to hold on to when they float.
ACF's are notoriously messy eaters, and will turn a tank into a disaster zone! I feed the betta and the shrimp food every day, and the frogs get whatever they can grab [not much!] since they are pretty much blind and deaf, and have no teeth or tongues. They kind of scoop with thier hands, and hope it makes it in their mouths. Which works well when they are bigger, but little ones, not so much!
So, every other day, i feed the froggles with a syringe. I grind up the food, as water, and then find a frog! you have to be very careful with the plunger, not to go to fast. Some of the food will go out of their mouths, since they dont have a good mouth for syringes..but they do clamp on!
Hope you enjoy the videos!
