    Re: anchor worm

    This forum is dedicated to aquatic frogs (from Africa and South America) whose limbs have not evolved to support them on land and I doubt that anyone here has the information that you're seeking. I...

    I recently stumbled across these two videos, which are interesting:

    Re: Need help with filters for ACF

    Terry, Dan's post reflects my own thoughts, especially his observation that you appear to be making too much work for yourself, albeit with the best of intentions. Ive been back over your original...

    Re: Need help with filters for ACF

    Dan was referring to "The Nitrogen Cycle". It'd probably be best for you to Google it. There's loads of info about it out there.


    Instead of relocating the tank you could try shading up to...

    Re: Aquarium Size ADF

    I think that your main problem with a tank that size will be monitoring the frogs' health during the first few weeks or months after you acquire them. The frogs are often sold as undernourished...

    Re: Need help with filters for ACF

    I suspect the main reason that your tank's getting green and smelly after a few days is because it's receiving too much light. If the tank's receiving direct sunlight or is artificially illuminated,...
  7. Re: Help with African clawed frog spitting out food

    It's an impossible question to answer. My guess is that the problem's probably age-related but it's hard to judge. I can only suggest that you try feeding him a relatively large food item, such as an...

    Re: African clawed frog almost stopped eating.

    Thank you for taking the time to post an update. I hope things work out and that your frog recovers. I can only repeat that, in my opinion, its loss of appetite is almost certainly a symptom of an...

    Re: African clawed frog almost stopped eating.

    Unfortunately, it's not possible to judge what the problem might be. My opinion, for what it's worth, is that the frog looks very emaciated and I strongly suspect that its loss of appetite is a...

    Re: ADF with white spots on his knees??

    It's impossible to judge whether there's anything seriously wrong with your frogs. All I can tell you is that these frogs do, very occasionally, flip over onto their backs for no apparent reason,...

    Re: Calcium deficiency in African dwarf frogs

    The oldest dwarf frog I ever had lived to be 8 years old but that was exceptional as I found that their usual lifespan was around 5 years. I've also read accounts of people having dwarf frogs that...

    Re: Calcium deficiency in African dwarf frogs

    I believe that you're worrying needlessly due to the facts that you've successfully maintained these frogs for two years, which is an achievement in itself; many people seem to have difficulty...
  13. Re: Does anyone know what is wrong with African dwarf frog??

    The image is large but indistinct and it's unclear why you suspect a bacterial or fungal infection. There's no apparent inflammation or cotton-like growth evident in the photograph. Why do you...

    Re: My African Clawed Frog is not moving!

    It's impossible to judge what the source of the problem might be but what you've written suggests that there's some aspect of the frog's new environment causing its distress.

    Although you say that...
  15. Re: ACF has peeled skin on back and has changed colors.

    Your frog's in the video for less than one second, which makes it impossible to see the problem.

    Is the skin peeling off in pieces instead of being shed by the frog in the normal manner? Also,...

    Re: Marks on Albino ACF / nematodes in tank

    In my opinion, the markings are just the frog's natural, inherited pigmentation showing through. There are many variations in markings, with some examples illustrated here:...
  17. Re: Help! New to African Dwarf Frogs and one is sick!

    Judging from your photograph, it appears to be the consequence of a fungus condition that I once experienced with one of my Hymenochirus frogs about 30 years ago.

    The frog that I had developed a...

    Re: Newbie Questions - Getting an ACF

    No, they're both likely to be Xenopus laevis, which has several different colour forms.



    It's hard to say. The frogs have sensory organs that detect movement in the water so it's best to...

    I don't know of any cases of Xenopus frogs getting infected with velvet, which is a parasitic infection in fish. The frogs' skin has highly resilient properties, which are explained in this old...

    Re: Separate my dwarf clawed frogs?

    I doubt that you have anything to be concerned about. Male Hymenochirus frogs in breeding condition will clasp any frog in close proximity regardless of whether it's male or female. The eggs are very...

    Re: ACFs - Two males and a female??

    They usually stay dark but may vary in intensity.


    There's no concise answer to this. Growth rates between the sexes are usually equal. However, your frogs are most likely to be descended from...

    Re: My ACF won't move

    I strongly suspect that the source of the problem is that your filter's too powerful for such a small tank. The Aqueon At10 claims a turnover rate 57 gallons an hour. In such a small tank I'd...

    The only things I can add to my last post is that if, as you say, your frog is eating after all, then it's unlikely you have anything to worry about because sick animals usually do not eat at all....

    Re: Sick or Simply not Hungry?

    I kept and bred Xenopus for 26 years. In my opinion there's no evidence to suggest that your frog is ill. It's not uncommon for these frogs to stop eating for a period of time for no apparent reason....
