Rated 4 out of 5 by Buddyswimmy Great frog
Very awesome frog I bought last Tuesday, but is very timid and skittish because it always hides in my castle ornament. His named is George.

I got my little guy about 2 weeks ago. He's great! He likes to explore around the plants and made a home under a cholla stump I have. I read that freeze dried food can cause blockage as well as the frog pellets that haven't been pre-moistened, so I have a cup I scoop aquarium water in, drop a few micro pellets in the cup, and let them soften a bit while I feed him two bloodworms with tweezers. Then I drop the pellets into his dish. Took 2 days for him to learn to come to the dish, now I spy him sniffing around in there when he's hungry. I feed him every other day, sometimes more worms depending on how he looks, he lives in a 10 gallon tank, and he gets along well with my 4 lyretail guppies and 3 Amano shrimp. Planning on getting frozen brine shrimp to vary his diet a bit, but he's become my favorite pet in the tank to watch!

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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cindi74 Do your homework!
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! :-)
