    Default feeding african clawed frog babies

    I have an ACF female already who loves my tank and she's grow in nicely on baby nightcrawlers and occasional black worms
    now my friend gave me a small little regular clawed frog who's not albino and who's abiut the size of my thumb not including legs
    and he looks tiny for baby crawlers even when I cut em up
    Hell eat some live black worms but what else can I feed him?
    What is good for there growth

    Live black worms are good for young clawed frogs, unfortunately for me, black worms cultures I'd get had leeches in them. I heard this is common with black worm cultures but I'm not sure.

    I used to feed mine reptomin as well, they do sell 'baby' sticks which are smaller than the normal kind. You could also feed this frog mysis shrimp as well (the PE Mysis brand are large enough for juvenile xenopus), or you could just cut up small nightcrawlers with a scissor.

    There are also sinking pellets on the market too, like HBH Frog and Tadpole Bites.. my frogs would never touch the stuff though so your mileage may vary on that product.
