African Dwarf Frog Stuck in roots
My african dwarf frog is getting himself tangled in the roots of a plant in my aquarium so bad that I have to reach in and remove him. Im new to fish keeping so any help would be appreciated

hello and welcome.
is it possible for you to cover the roots with a stone so he can't get at them,
would you be able to post a picture of the tank ?

Ive tried to cover them with gravel but he will dig them out

willow 01-02-2011 01:10 PM

yeah they're good at that.
what size tank is he in,have you any larger stones you could place over the top ?

its a ten gallon, and would i be able to remove the plant and replant it or would that kill the plant

yeah you can do that,just be nice and gental when pulling it out,
so you don't damage the roots,and it should be fine.
