New clawed frog tank


Full tank shot..probably would have been better to get a 20 long but it wouldn't have fit in that space as well and we're kinda running out of room.


His eyes and back are all weird looking because Hubby tried to move them into the tank they were in before this and I wasn't home to supervise and he kinda dropped him because they're so slippery...I can't figure out if the discoloration will go away or not since they shed their skin.


He seems pretty healthy otherwise, I just keep an eye out to make sure he doesn't get any weird infections in his legs or something (they're prone to red leg if they suffer trauma). Ever since we moved him into this new tank he makes VERY loud croaking noises :)


Get off my face!!!!! Haha, he's not really pushing off his face, her foot just landed there. He tolerated this for about 10 seconds and then swam away.

Too bad I couldn't find the camera yesterday or the day before. Not 24 hours after moving them into the tank we had eggs and some tadpoles yesterday but they ate them. I'm sure there will be more :)

This is the song that never ends...

So, uhhhhh. I thought they ate the tadpoles. Apparently not....found these stuck to the glass this morning....


There are about 8 more of those...they have eyes and everything. *sigh* I wonder if they'll get eaten. Not interested in raising froglets.

This is the song that never ends...

A very nice clawed tank. Does it worry you that the rocks will be smashed against the glass?

I ask because I too have a clawed frog tank, but I removed the rocks because the frogs were always hitting the rocks against the tank. Without a substrate, I can't really plant anything and their tank is sooo boring.

Huh, didn't even know there were comment here till now :)

To SeaSerpant: The dwarf part says it all :) If you've ever seen the size of an ACF when full grown you'd be impressed :) ADF's have webbed hands and feed unlike the ACF's that only have webbed feet. And ADF's will never come in the albino color, or lack therof really.

To LJean: They don't move the rocks around a lot actually, so I think I got lucky there.

Geega...they ate em :) I wasn't too sad.

This is the song that never ends...

I guess you are lucky. ;) I was always nervous the tank would crack when I would hear the rocks clang against it. I don't want to use smaller gravel as I don't want them eating it. I have to figure out a way to make the tank more appealing.
