Yay!! I have webbing!!


Will this frog kill my cherry shrimp population?

Thanks for the easy info to identify my frog.
It might make life hard for your shrimp. While it probably can't take down an adult most of the time, it might after moulting, and it will surely eat any young'uns.

MY frog is still in the breeder.. He/She doesn't seem to be interested in the shrimp pellets, flakes, algea wafers, or the freeze dry brine shrimp...

Is he just not hungry or what?

They only eat food that sinks. I give mine freeze dried blood worms which I sink myself by holding underwater until they are water logged. Frogs definatly don't eat algae or flakes.

Mine are getting fat and happy on a rotating diet of frozen bloodworms, frozen spirulina brine shrimp, sinking catfish pellets, and "frog treats" which are shrimp & kelp, I believe. Also, any betta pellets that the betta ignores sink after a while and they seem to clean those up. They don't touch the catfish pellets until they're waterlogged enough to break up a bit.

i never see my frogs eat, but they do eat fallen stuff so i think they are like a type of scavenger.

i am soon about to get some african dwarf frogs, and they are completely white. the picture says that they are african dwarf frogs, and are like that, but im not so sure after reading this. im not sure that they have webbed feet yet, but im making sure they dont (uncertainface). and do they eat plants? i am soon getting java moss, and my other plants are dying, so i need this plant

White ones are always african clawed frogs which grow 5 inches long and will eat fish.

African dwarf frogs - webbing between front toes, come in ONLY brown
African clawed frogs - no webbing between front toes come in brown or albino

My frog was solid white when I got him...


I guess he was stressed. He is now normal colored in my tank.
