    My female "teenager"ACF eats at least TWO TO THREE times faster than my teen male. It's coming to be a problem with dinner! D will be on her 4th worm while Haus is barely on his first. He's not getting as much as his sister even when we are patient and he's not as big as her. What do I...

    I already spent, like, 20 minutes typing this once, and then my glorious computer decided there was some kind of data base problem and deleted it all... *sigh* So I'll make this quicker I guess. I happen to be blessed with one of the only picky ACFs on the planet. Squishy won't touch brine...

    We have NO problem what-so-ever with our African Dwarf Frogs- they love pellets, blood worms, etc and before now we have never had a problem with our African Clawed Frogs. Recently, out of nowhere our African Clawed Frogs have regressed... they are incredibly skiddish & they don't come up to...

    What is this?! I just looked over at his tank a minute ago, and his eye looks like it's bleeding! The blood is in a little pool at the bottom of the membrane thing that goes over their eyes. :( What is it, and should I be worried?? He is acting normal and swimming around...

    I'm a proud mama! I have one boy, Haus, and one girl, Dee. They are both about 9 months old now and starting to get bigger (not full grown by ANY means). They are just about to graduate from red wigglers to earth worms!! Anyway, I have a 20 G (it's quite longer than tall) tank with a great...

    How many days can my ACF'S (one male and one female) that are about 8 months old safely go without worms (or food in general) if I feed them 4 maaaybe 5 red wigglers before I go w/ a treat of HBH pellets? Right now they live in a 20 gallon tank and live on a schedule of 3-4 worms very other...

    I know each type of snail requires/eats different things so I am wondering what snail would go best in a: A) 74 degree, 20 gallon tank w/ 2 ACF's. My tank is 100% rocks, it's mostly the ornaments that are collecting algae! B) 79-80 degree, 18 gallon tank w/ 2 ADF's. This tank is half rocks...

    Ive been feeding him red wiggler worms for the last couple months, and all the sudden he decided he doesnt like them anymore. I usually feed him 2 worms every other day. When I fed him on Wednesday, he didnt want either worms... When I gave him one, he would put it in his mouth and then spit it...

    Out of all of the frogs you have owned (either ACF or ADF) what has been their average life span? Any tips or tricks to prolong their lives?

    My husband & I are experienced frog owners with 3 tanks that are PERFECT for frogs. We have tons of lovely hiding places, plants, proper filtration, variety of food & substrate. At the moment we have 2 ACF's & 1 ADF, but have room for 1 more ACF & 4 more ACF's. If anyone has any questions or...

    I know everyone is different and that's awesome, but I wanted to see the schedule and amount/types of food you feed your amazing African Clawed Frogs? Our babies Haus & Froggy D are ACF'S & are 1 years old so they are still small. We feed them 2 red wigglers a piece every other day for the...

    The tank I have is reallllly heavy as it is- with water it's another story! The tank has just finished being cycled, though (move was NOT planned). If I pour out all of the water and just carry my ACF's in a different container filled with their old water won't I have to completely RE-START the...

    Each of my frogs are about 1.75-2 inches length wise w/ thick healthy thighs and the most adorable flippers. Their absolute max food wise is 3 live red wigglers (they are a little smaller than earth worms!). Over-feeding can be a huge problem though and I wanted to see what you guys think...

    I've heard anubias are really great, is that so? I really need live plants as my nitrate/nitrite shoot up (I didn't have a choice so I'm cycling with frogs in the tank)! What are your top plants? :frog:

    Hey guys, My ACF that I've had since October (and is now GIGANTIC compared to when I got her) has this red bump on her foot and I don't know what it's from. I've kept the tank regularly cleaned about once a week, and have gravel vacuumed, added aquarium salt (less than recommended because I...

    Alright. This seems to be a popular topic, and I've browsed some posts, but I'm still not getting much info. I ordered some Grow-a-Frogs the other day. I bought the kit, and then started thinking about it, and decided they are probably better cared for if I followed the advice of people who...

    Hi PT amigos y amigas! I would like info on ACF from any of you that have or have had them. :) We are considering adding them to our 60 gallon tank which now is housing 2 blue gouramis, 2 angelfish, 2 corydoras(peppered, emerald green), 1 silver dollar and 1 clown loach. The gouramis I...

    Well my ACF Tricolo died today (RIP) and I'm just trying to find out why, and what I was doing wrong. I mean I only had him for a month. Since I got him he has been really small and skinny for a frog but I fed him everyday, cleaned the gravel every week and had him with a silent filter, he has...

    Today I bought a little African Clawed Frog, it's only about an inch long so I suppose it must be very young. I've got it in a 20 gallon tank on it's own and was wondering if they need the company of others or I can just keep him on his own (I'm not actually sure if it's a male or a female yet...
