Rated 5 out of 5 by MerElyse Love, but not for beginners
I love African Dwarf Frogs, but I would not recommend them for beginners. Do your research before purchasing. They can live a really long time! Mine lived to 4 years before jumping out of the tank while my friend watched him during a vacation. They stay small, so you don't have to worry about them eating other fish, and they're super cute!

I love ADF's! PLEASE do your research when purchasing these little guys. Ammonia is extremely toxic since they breath through their skin. I recommend a dedicated tank just for them! I also recommend a small heater to maintain consistent temperature, low-flow filter - avoid disturbing the water with bubbles, live plants, an ammonia testing kit, a feeding dish, proper water conditioner, and bacteria supplement. It sounds like a lot but if you want them to be healthy and thrive, these items will assist. I am aware that they can live with Betta and other small fish but I choose not to. Betta's can be aggressive and ADF's can be difficult to feed properly with competition, not to mention the ammonia produced by fish. Don't forget to provide safe hiding spots as they like to hide out, especially while getting acclimated to their new digs - beware of hard plastic plants as they can cause wounds. Allow ample time for your tank to cycle, like you would for any new set-up. They're a little clumsy so make sure your tank isn't too deep for them to pop up for some air and be sure to have a hood for their protection! :-)

Rated 4 out of 5 by EpExEc Cute little guys
great frogs. very small little guys. Use a weak filter for them so they don't get exhausted and drown. Also keep more females than males for the same reason (the males will exhaust the females). These frogs for the most part WILL NOT eat floating flake fish food. Not only do they not eat floating food, but if they do eat fish food they usually spit it out. They're frogs, not fish. So please purchase aquatic frog food for them. They eat a few pellets a day. place a small ceramic dish in the tank and put the food on it (otherwise they won't find it). Or you can hold the food in the water in front of them and they will eat it out of your hand after a while. The food needs to be righr in front of them or they just won't find it. Also, keep only small fish with them. Large fish can easily hurt these tiny, fragile frogs. Do not keep plecos with these frogs. Plecos are territorial and will grab the frogs and rub them across the gravel. It's best to keep only a few, small fish with them. If you keep a lot of very active fish with them the fish will eat all the frogs' food. Make sure they have hidaways as well, a ceramic pot turned on its sode and buried partially in the gravel works very well. These frogs are very fragile, only peaceful tank mates should be housed with them. They are cute little guys, and once you have a system they're not hard to care for.They don't grow very big either and they don't need any dry land like other frogs. Very fun pets if you know how to care for them and keep them happy.
