wasnt really sure where to post this so i put it in general
today when i went down to my LFS (the woman there liking me and being a good customer and all) i was given 2 frogs free with my purchase of a new air pump.

now i was wondering the varieties of easy to get food to feed frogs :p
i have no idea what type they are and they are extremely shy now submerging into the caves everytime they see me shadow so a picture is quite hard atm.

also is driftwood a nescessity for frogs?

thanks in advance for any help

don't know about frogs,
my brother had them years ago,they were forever getting out
we would find them dried out on the stairs.(gross)
i think they are ment to like blood worm ?
keep the lid of the tank tightly shut. :)

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Hi There I just bought some African Dwarf frogs...THey are very tiny with webbed feet front and back.. I was told to feed them frozen blood worms...I have read quite a bit of stuff about them and you pretty much need to put the food right in front of them. I didnt do it the first time they ate but I am not sure how much....And I just got the frozen blood worms from our local pet store so they should be hard to find. Mine are still extremely shy... and I didn't buy drift wood but I do know they need good hiding places...they more active when it is darker and night time.

Thank You,
Alisha, Fred & Barney

What color are your frogs? If they're grey/brown and spotted, they're probably African dwarf frogs. Dwarfs are completely aquatic, so they won't need driftwood. Mine loved live bloodworms, but they'll also readily accept frozen bloodworms. If you're keeping other fish with them, you'll have to make sure they get some food before the fish eat it all. Otherwise, just drop some in and they'll stay busy hunting for it. They don't find in right away, but given a little time they'll get it all. They love places to hide. And I've never heard of ADFs eating fish... especially fish twice their size. I kept some of mine with platys for quite awhile, and they did fine. Dwarf frogs don't usually get more that an inch or so from nose to rear. Here's a pic of one of my frogs.

If this doesn't look like yours, then you probably have african Clawed frogs. These get much bigger, and are a completely diffferent species.
