    Lost a froggy today

    Bit of a bummer, I had moved my african dwarf frogs out of my main tank while I used worming medication on my fish as they were showing symptoms. I kept the frogs out much longer than recommended by the manufacturer and did extra water changes to help dilute the meds out once I'd finished...

    My ADF's side by side comparison

    Managed to get all my ADF's together while feeding today and took a picture to show the size difference between them all. All purchased at the same time so I assume are the same age, and were all teeny when I got them 6ish months ago, but the lightest one is probably twice the size of all the...

    Can African Dwarf Frogs Eat Spiders?

    I just noticed a small spider just above the water line in my 40 gal tank with African dwarf frogs in it. If the frogs can eat spiders, I am interested in feeding it to them. If not, I'll just collect the spider and put it outside. :) So does anyone know if its safe for them or if they would...

    Do ADF's "need" pellets?

    I'm currently feeding my African Dwarf Frogs a combo of frozen daphnia, brine shrimp, blood worms and amphibigold pellets on different days. I soak the pellets overnight and mash them up before feeding as they're far too big otherwise, but the frogs just spit them out. They don't spit out any...

    My little froggies

    Managed to get half decent pictures of 4 out of 5 of my ADF's, they're getting much more confident and have learned that big human looming at the top of the water = food! I think I have 2 males and 3 females but not completely sure as they're still juveniles, two are noticeably smaller (see the...

    Little update on my tank

    Tried to get a few videos of my tank, unfortunately the cories were nowhere to be seen so its mainly a video of my frogs and snails hanging out at the top! Tank has been set up for 2 months and I'm happy with how it's going although will be happier when the plants grow in a bit more.
