I just took a look at my albinos. At least two of them have the veins showing and red between the toes. They are all healthy. :)

I got my frogs at different times so I would put the babies in a ten gallon tank until they got big enough to be put in with the others.

I've never really bothered to measure him, but he's full grown.

African Underwater Frogs

I looked for my question and can't find it. :( Anyway, I'll put it up again. My male frogs are startint to get aggresive w/each other. Would it be wise of me to get a couple of females, put them in their own tank until they have grown close to my males and then introduce them to my males? I don't know what else to do. The boys, for the most part, get along beautifully. They are constantly holding on to each other, which leads me to believe that they need a female.

Hmmmm...depending on your filtration and water change schedule it's probably possible to have 4 albinos. Females are bigger than males when full grown and eat more so they also make more of a mess.

I'm in the process of purchasing a 55 gal setup for the frogs. If I can't find a couple of adult females; then, I'll get a couple of small frogs from my LPS & hope that I got at least 1 female. I have read on other websites that the adult males sing. I have never heard mine do that. I wish that they would. It sounds nice.

They do sing, I'm surprised you haven't heard yours since you don't have any females. When you do have females, they will breed twice a year and not really call out much until it's time to breed again. When you go to get the frogs, look at them and see if they have protrusions between the back legs. Those are usually female.

Yeah, that I knew; but, with the ones that I have to choose from at my LPS, they all look like males. I was assuming that they were too young for correct identification. Am I wrong on that? Could it be that they are all males?
Also, I want to thank you for all of your help over the past few months. I'd be lost w/o you.

Hmmm, not sure on that. When we got ours they were tiny but I think the female still looked like a female. I guess my best advice would be to not buy one unless you see one that is for sure female.
