Do African dwarf frogs need hides?

The frogs don’t care about that. They just need hiding places so they feel secure. Many aquarium decorations make excellent hiding places for ADFs, but I just used an unpainted clay flowerpot for this habitat. Live plants or soft, silk artificial plants are also good hiding places for African dwarf frogs.

What kind of fish can African dwarf frogs live with?

They will happily coexist and live with other peaceful species and fish. Again, if you are stocking the aquarium with frogs and fish, make sure that it is not too overcrowded and that you do not put too many of them together – enable them to have enough breathing space to live.

What should I do if my dwarf frog is eating my fish?

The fish will take the food at the top, while the frogs will eat the food at the bottom. Siphon off 10-20% of the water each week and replace it to clean the tank. You can use a turkey baster for this process.

What should I put in my African dwarf frogs tank?

Layer the bottom of the tank with 2 to 3 inches (5-8 cm) of aquarium gravel. (That’s about 1 ½ pounds of gravel per gallon of water.) Rinse the gravel in clean water before putting it in your frogs’ home. African dwarf frogs especially love plants in their tanks, whether living or artificial.

Why are African dwarf frogs dying in the water?

One of the biggest reasons is because the water in a tank for African dwarf frogs (or any aquatic pet habitat) needs to be prepared before the frogs are introduced. If you just fill the tank with tap water and toss the frogs into it, they will almost surely die within a few days or weeks.

Its Skin Is Turning Pale Sometimes African Dwarf Frogs will give the illusion that they have grown pale, but a day later their dead skin will shed and their darker skin will be back, brand new. However, if your frog remains pale after a full day and they’re not shedding it off, then something is very wrong.

Despite being aquatic, these frogs actually are not great swimmers, they should not be kept in deep aquariums (not more than 20 inches deep), and it’s important that there are no strong water currents in the tank. African Dwarf Frogs should not be taken out of water since they cannot tolerate dry conditions.

Can a African dwarf frog live in a 3.5 gallon tank?

It is recommended that you have at least 3 gallons per frog, but I really wouldn’t keep one in anything less than 5 gallons. Be sure to get an African Dwarf Frog at the store: African Clawed Frogs don’t have all 4 feet as webbed feet, but the Dwarf Frogs do.
