LOL, they eat a lot IF you let them, they don't actually need to eat that much though. As I'm sure you've found out by now, you should not be feeding any kinds of minnow or goldfish because they have serrated spines that can harm them.

You sound like you're doing good with them besides that little problem, you have a big enough tank for them, just follow the feeding guidelines and you should be ok. Consider setting up a breeding tank for feeder guppies too.

Thank you so much for the advise. I have heard mixed reviews re:rosie reds & goldfish. In my area of Northeast Ohio, I can not find any store that sells feeder guppies. I have an extra 10 gal tank that would be perfect for that, too. I'll keep looking; but, I might have to resort to the fancy guppies; unless, there is another fish that would work.
Yeah, I know that I don't have to feed them as much as I do; but, they are so pathetic when there isn't a bunch of swimming food. They seriously hang at the front of the tank and stare at me w/their cute little faces.

Yeah, they're just so darn pathetic aren't they? Ya gotta learn to resist it tho :) Anyways, all you need a trio cuz anything more will overcrowd your tank after a while and and extras from the trio you might be able to sell to the LFS. Just find a couple that have some ugly colors or not very long fins and use those.

I love these little frogs. I had an aquatic frog a few years ago I kept in a small tank. I started the tank with fish, but over time he became the lone inhabitant of the little tank. I alter realized the tank was just too small to house any more critters.

Now I have a new ten gallon tank and I definitely want to have another aquatic frog in there along with a companion frog this time so he doesn't get lonely. But, provided that I want to have two frogs in there, what other fish and critters can I put in there? I'd also like to have a shrimp or two. I haven't decided about the fish yet except that they will not be goldfish.

If you want the african clawed type they're technically 10 gallons a piece, and you can forget having any fish since they WILL get big enough to eat em :)

My daughter had the dwarf clawed frogs in a 10g tank. I think there were 4 of them and some guppies. Sometimes the fish would pick on the frogs.

The one I had was small and stayed small, so I'm taking a gander that there are smaller aquatic frog species. Any recommendations?

African Underwater Clawed Frog

I wanted to get a female for my 2 boys; but, can't find one whose big enough to be loved and NOT eaten.
Got another froggie question.......Fred's back feet are getting a pinkish/red w/the veins really turning a darker red. Is this normal? (He's the albino one, but, his back feet have really become pronounced)

Oh, you have the dwarfs. You can have anything that won't pick on it or get aggressive about it's food.

Just keep an eye on his legs to make sure they aren't swelling. I can see the veins pretty good in my male frog's feet too.
