    Talking New to the forums. introduction/questions about fish and frogs.

    Hello everyone, i'm new here, glad to meet you all.
    I've never cared for a frog before, but i'm thinking about getting one.
    I'm sure i'll learn a lot here, and maybe even be able to help out other people here someday.
    I've actually been thinking about setting up a frog habitat that can also house freshwater fish, if that's possible.
    i've heard you can keep african dwarf frogs, and clawed frogs in a fish tank, but i was thinking more of a half land, half water set up.
    something with terrestrial frogs, that could rest and dry on the land, and take a swim with the fishes.
    are there any semi-aquatic frogs you could recommend that i could put in a half land, half water tank with freshwater fish?
    any freshwater fish you could recommend that would get along well with the frog?
    Thanks for reading everyone, nice to meet you all.
    any advice is appreciated.

    Welcome to the forum. You can do a land/water setup and you can keep fish in there too. Just be sure to pick a frog species that likes water habitats.

    I keep fire belly toads in a 10 gallon tank that is roughly 70 percent water in surface area. They prefer the water and spend more time in it than they do on land. The water is not deep enough to keep fish, but if I had a bigger one, I'd try to put fish in there that the fbt's could also feed on.

    Take a look at what kind of frogs and toads are available for sale in your area. Then search for care and habitat guides on the internet and make sure that is what you want to commit too. Mixing different types of frogs/toads in generally not recommended.

    Once you've decided what you think you want...... browse through some of the posts in what ever sub forum matches your pick. If you are sure.. then build the viv first and get it established before you buy the critter. If it does have a large water feature and/or live plants, then let all that get stabilized for two or three weeks.

    Thanks for the information, i'll try to keep that in mind. I've been thinking about either a budgetts frog, or an african bullfrog. it sounds like a budgett would be a better option, since it is more aquatic. Possibly rain frogs, but i heard they were not aquatic.

    Hey and welcome! I think I heard Budgett's need to be hibernated/ aestivated, but I'm not entirely sure. Hopefully someone here can help you with that. And nope, I think rain frogs are more burrowing desert frogs.
