African Dwarf Frog Help

Hey everybody,

A couple of days ago I purchased two african dwarf frogs for my 10 gal aquarium. They're in the tank alone other than one other Betta fish who doesn't mind them at all. The temperature is around 80-83 degrees, and they have a few caves that they like to hide in during most of the day. I;ve been trying to feed them frozen bloodworms, but am having some difficulty. One of them is about an inch big, and I can get him to eat without a problem. However, the other one is much smaller (about half the size), and whenever he eats the bloodworms he throws them up almost immediately. Could it be because the worms are too big for him? Or is there something else wrong with him? He's very small and I don't see him living very long without eating...Please help if you have some insight.

Thanks.

ADFs have no teeth so it could be that the worms are too big for him. Try chopping them up into smaller pieces. Mine also ate frozen brine shrimp.

Do these types of frogs ever act aggressively? I noticed my Betta is missing chunks out of his tail.. I can only imagine its from the frogs. I have never had a problem with fin rot before.
