    Betta and ADF issue!

    I have had a female betta in a 5.5 gal tank for a few months now. Shes was a sorority fish so I wanted to get her a new tank mate, but 2 betas in a 5.5 gal seemed mean. So I got an African drawf frog. They were doing great, both very friendly and active. However, after a week in the tank, I woke...

    Introducing New African Dwarf Frogs?

    Hi, I'm looking for advice. For backstory, for 7 years now, I have had 2 ADF and a zebra nerite snail living in a 5 gallon tank with no filter. I realize that I definitely should have a filter, but I was very young when I first set up the tank, and by the time I learned enough to know that they...

    How many African dwarf frogs in a 7.5 gallom

    Can anyone help me? I am setting up a 7.5-gallon African dwarf frog tank. The tank will be specifically designed around ADF and will have no other tank mate (maybe a snail but that is it). The tank will be planted in a 'jungle' style so very heavily planted and will have lots of driftwood and...

    African Dwarf Frogs biting each other

    Hi all, I just recently purchased a 5 gallon tank and I have 2 molies and 2 African dwarf frogs in it. This is my first time ever keeping frogs and I’m not very experienced at it. I’ve had them for about a month now. I’ve been feeding them aquatic frog sinking pellets but have never observed...

    ADF with flaky skin?

    Hi! So I recently purchased an african dwarf frog from a large-chain pet store. Aside from his missing arm, which was very inflamed when I got him, he seemed to be alright-- eating well, responsive to stimulus, etc. I've been quarantining him for about a week now before I introduce him to my...

    Are these ADF eggs in my tank?

    Hello there! I just got two ADFs (that I believe are both females) and added them to a newly cycled tank 2 days ago. Today I noticed some strange egg-like objects in the gravel today. The only thing is that I know that ADFs usually lay eggs hundreds at a time, and I've only found about 10 of...

The tank also has four mollies and every test I’ve done has shown every level to be around average( tank is ten gallon). Yesterday I woke up to find one of my frogs on its back dead, I assumed it died of some disease and...

    African Dwarf Frog

    I’m very new to this but just recently adopted an ADF & he has a big white spot on his back. Should I be worried? He hangs out around the tank sometimes at the top of the water & sometimes at the bottom. He’s always stayed very still since I got him. Just want to make sure he’s not unhealthy or...

    Personal Website

    As a lover of fish keeping and photography, I love taking photos of my fish, shrimp and frogs. So as a bit of fun, I have created my own website called 'Soggy Friends'. The site is still fairly new and I still need to do some work on it, but I thought i'd share it with you.

    Frogs & Shrimp

    I have a fairly happy community tank, which includes African Dwarf Frogs and Cherry Shrimp. Unfortunately the Shrimp all seem to be vanishing. I think it's a couple of reasons. Firstly, they are hiding because of the fish in the tank, and secondly because I have frogs and I have seen the...

    Hello and thanks for having me. I am new to the forum, but I've been keeping fish on and off for many years. I presently have a 60L Tropical Aquarium with community fish, some African Dwarf Frogs and some shrimp. I plan in the future to have a larger Discus aquarium.

    Dwarf frogs

    i currently have a 55gal freshwater set up with a few plants, 2 Bala Sharks, 2 mystery snails, 3 Kuhli Loaches, and a one eyed dwarf flame gourami. I recently added an ADF to my sons 10gal and I’m just loving him! Wondering if adding a couple to my 55 gal would be a good idea?

    Treating ADF for fungal infection

    Alright, so I tried the Methylene blue just by putting a drop on each fungal wound with a syringe. Most of it was streaming down the frog's head so I rinsed a bit off with a turkey baster and tank water, but the methylene stayed on the fungal wounds so that is good. I realized I didnt have to...

    I Want African Dwarf Frogs

    So, I really love the African Dwarf Frogs in my local pet store. I am considering getting some so I have a few questions:   Do they need a filtered tank/moving water? Do they do well with peaceful fish (platy/corydora) ? What do they eat? Do they ever need to come out of the water?    And any...
