Frog?
 
Is there a frog that can live in a completely water environment?

Freshwater.

African dwarf frogs and african clawed frogs can.

And you can keep African Dwarf Frogs with all but the smallest fish - Like livebearer fry.

African Clawed Frogs cannot be safely kept with fish. Any fish that they won't eat will probably eat them. I mean, maybe Pacu or Uaru would work, but do you really want a community tank with some 5" frogs and some 2' fish?

Albinos are, to date, always clawed, never dwarf.

Alright. The salesman at Petsmart sold me a white frog that was in the same tank as the danios. He's really small (size of a quarter). You are telling me this fish is going to grow up and eat the other fish? How long do I have until he does that?

u definitely got a clawed one, im not sure how fast they grow but they will eat fish twice their size, so most fish already are at risk in ur tank

So at lunch I decided to root out the frog and put him in the quarantine tank.

Appearantly this guy was sick when I got him. He is no longer white. He looks like a normal brown frog. I left him in the tank, but in a breeder net until I can get some pictures and identify him better.

I got him at petsmart. He was in the same tank as the danios.

the one easy way to tell between the two species is that african dwarf frogs have webbing between their front toes and african clawed frogs do not.
