My african dwarf frogs
 
I have 2 of them and they are my favorite inhabitants of the tank. I handfeed them since my fish like to steal their food so if they see me they always come right up to the glass and stare at me. lol

Thank you! I love my mystery snail too. I want to go get a couple more of them. Right now I have 2 a blue and a black.

dam they are CUTE!

and that cory looks huge behind him!

Lindsey88 12-09-2007 08:22 PM

Thank you. It's funny during feeding time they will "nibble" everything thinking it's food including my snails and the cories. If I stick my hands in there to move something they swim right over and bite at my fingers. They are so funny.

do they really get 10" :?:

Lindsey88 12-09-2007 09:10 PM

African dwarf frogs only get 1.5-2 inches max. They are tiny little guys.

Yep, you'd have been thinking about an african clawed frog - they're a different species. :)

I have heard that they are good to keep with bettas or tetras. I have been thinking about getting one to keep with my betta. You can keep them with any gentle fish that won't eat them. I have platies and guppies and cories with mine. They are very gentle and pretty much keep to themselves. They are funny though especially when you have more than one. They need a secure lid though or they will escape. Yeah you were thinking of african clawed frogs. They grow to 5 inches long and will eat fish. When you go to purchase them be careful which ones you get. African clawed frogs come in albino or natural colored (adf's don't come in albino) African dwarf frogs also have webbing between their front toes where acf don't. My local petsmart labled them wierd. The african dwarf frogs were labled (African dwarf frog (MD)) And the african clawed frogs were labled (African dwarf frog (XL))
