overview
The Dwarf African Frog is a delightful amphibian that's making a splash among hobbyists. As a true aquatic species, the Dwarf African Frog makes a unique addition to the peaceful freshwater community aquarium. However, the Dwarf African Frog is easier to care for and best observed when housed in its very own aquarium. As its name suggests, the Dwarf African Frog is a very diminutive animal that can easily become prey if kept with large fish. This docile frog is slow and meticulous in its movement and feeding behavior. It is not uncommon for faster, more agile fish to consume all the food intended for the Dwarf African Frog.

The Dwarf African Frog should be housed in an established aquarium no smaller than 10 gallons in size. The ideal setup should be aquascaped using soft or smooth substrate and lots live plants, driftwood and rocks to provide ample places for the Dwarf African Frog to seek shelter or explore. Artificial or silk-like plants are also a great choice. A tightly-fitting cover is required to prevent unwanted escape. Slightly lower the water level below the aquarium rim for added protection against escape. A well filtered aquarium with stable water temperature is essential for the health of your Dwarf African Frog. Since the Dwarf African Frog is mainly active at night, subdue or filtered lighting provides ideal daytime lighting conditions. The Dwarf African Frog is social in nature and will appreciate the company of other Dwarf African Frogs. A small group consisting of at least three Dwarf African Frogs creates a lively and entertaining setup.

The Dwarf African Frog is a carnivore that requires meaty foods such and frozen or freeze-dried bloodworms, tubifex, and brine shrimp.

Approximate Purchase Size: 1/2" to 1-1/4".
