African dwarf frogs are a great addition to a peaceful tropical community aquarium. If not fed properly, they may eat smaller fish. These fully aquatic frogs cannot permanently survive out of water. Although they must remain in the water to survive, these frogs use their lungs to breathe air at the water's surface.
Things to remember
Because these frogs will dehydrate quickly when taken out of the water, they should not be handled.
African dwarf frogs will do well on a diet of live or frozen brine shrimp, bloodworms
or krill, as well as prepared, floating fish food diets.
Feeding amount & frequency
Feed your frogs 1-2 times a day. Offer an amount that can be consumed within 1-3 minutes.
A 10-gallon (40L) or larger aquarium is required with a screen top or aquarium hood for safety. You'll also want to include aquarium gravel, thermometer and filter.
