    Hello guys,

    Yesterday I was cleaning my african dwarf frog tank and I realized I don't really like what I currently have going on in there. I would love to theme the tank around the frogs and create an environment as close to their natural habitat as possible; however the catch is I would still want it to be fairly low tech and I only have 5 gallons to work with.

    I don't know if it is just my sad researching abilities or what, but I am having trouble finding a concrete example of what the African dwarf frogs natural habitat looks like, what plants to use, rocks, substrate etc. All I really know is that they come from Congo and that anubias seems to be a good plant to add in.

    Any advice, suggestions or ideas would be greatly appreciated :).

    Becky
