    did you buy them when they where very little? has this frog grown at all? and is the other slightly bigger? may just be different sex. Female African Clawed frogs tend to be larger than males.

    From the info you gave, the two albinos should be close to being sexually mature. Can you determine what sex they are? Males become mature in about 12 months and females about 9 months. As adults, albino frogs are smaller than the "wild type" (green, gray or brown coloration).

    I would place the smaller frog in a separate tank to make sure it is feeding properly and not being "bullied". In the wild, these frogs live in large colonies. They will establish hierarchies within their group, and display territoriality. They are known to be cannibalistic. I have seen some aggressive displays among my frogs and one pair has been together for almost 15 years.

    it is funny but the little green one is the most bossy he pushes the other two out the way for food I no he's eating I have been watching them to make sure don't i want him to die an for the two albino I can tell the sex I have a male and a female I was thinging of geting another green as it may feel left out on his own as they are like a pair what do you think to the idea?

    Getting another one would be fine. I keep mine in groups of two or three.

    As long as the tank is large enough, they should be fine together.
