    Re: ACF stunted?

    Some frogs just grow slower and/or are runts. In the wild those frogs would be eaten or likely not survive to be frogs. Our human interference often keeps these kind of animals alive. I have one male...

    Re: Temperature for ADFs

    That is getting up there. I lost an awesome colony years ago when daughters of people we had over for dinner messed with my heater. By the time I realized it(next day) my frogs were all floating with...

    Re: African Dwarf Frog Death

    I have never had as much success with dwarf frogs as when they had their own setups to themselves. I have tried various tank mates in the past including bettas. Some were decent, some bad. Having...

    Re: African Dwarf Frog Death

    I've seen it mentioned tons of times actually. I had a few frogs get it from just a few feedings some years ago when I introduced it to my rotation and ran out of other foods for a short while. Here...

    The only "good" amounts of Ammonia and Nitrite are "0". Any reading above that is toxic. Prime will help detoxify the ammonia, but you will still need to keep up with maintenance during your cycle...

    Re: ACF ate smaller ACF and heart broken

    The cannibalism thing is quite common. I have seen frogs close in size try to eat one another. It's just how they are. It is tough to get another frog once you fall in love with your first one....

    Re: new to aquatic frogs!

    I am fairly certain the African dwarf frogs are not wild caught in the North American pet trade. They are fairly easy to breed now. I do agree that they tend to come from some horrendous conditions...

    Re: Female just died after atempted mating!

    Males latching on for long periods is not too unusual. She very well could have drown from the experience. Maybe his extra weight along with her twisted spine was too much for to get to the surface...
  9. Re: can anyone tell me a different forum on acf thats more active.

    Not always going to get a response in the first day or two here, but you will eventually. I sent you a PM punky for a FB group that a lot of us frequent. Amphib if you have Facebook and want a link...
  10. Re: my frog is starting to get the black hands so does that mean its a male

    Black hands don't always mean male. Black forearms though; that's a male.

    Re: my albino clawed frog what do you think

    I like the look of substrate better myself. You could use large river stones or sand. I do sand myself.

    Re: A.C.F. Changes

    This cut off for some reason..... Was going to say that not eating can sometimes happen for short periods. Anything longer can be a sign that something is wrong such a water quality.

    Re: A.C.F. Changes

    For me nothing really changes other then size. You will get periods when your males sing and such, but that is normal. Occasionally you may get a frog that is not interested in eating, but

    Re: my albino clawed frog what do you think

    They look healthy so far. Can't tell sex from the pics though. I would consider removing the gravel as your frogs will eventually eat it on accident and can become impacted.

    Re: African Dwarf Frog Diet

    Frozen Mysis shrimp and spirulina enriched brine are good staples. I also had my frogs eating other things like frozen glass worms, frozen daphnia, and New Life Spectrum pellets.

    Re: Flipper has not eaten for 2 months now

    Based on your answers here I'd say there is nothing obvious causing him to not eat. You could always pick up some worms from the store ad get him to eat one. Frogs usually can' resist them. The...

    Re: Flipper has not eaten for 2 months now

    You should fill out the questionnaire I have copied and pasted below. It will make it a lot easier for us to make a diagnosis. Keep in mind though that it is not common for these frogs to fast...

    I have a friend with a 28 year old female who recently lost a 26 year old male.

    LOL, a couple of my frogs are actually ok with it. I will admit it took some work but they are just fine. The rest tough......Even I have to us a container.

    Re: ADF gross water

    It would be a lot easier to help you out if you go thru this questionnaire and fill it out best you can:

    1. Tank Size and volume of water in it (full, 1/2 filled, etc.)?

    2. Number of...
  24. Re: Switching to a bigger tank, well or city water? Reducing the stress of the change?

    I'd say use whatever you are already using. If you are using a good water conditioner, most of them detoxify metals as well as remove chlorine/chloramine.
    As far as capture, I always catch my frogs...
  25. Re: I have two aquatic frogs that I want to know the sex of

    Why start another thread about the same thing? You were given good information on how to sex them yourself over there. That being said you can not tell from the pics you have posted here.
