African Clawed Frog Can't Move 5/5/07About a week and a half ago I came into my African clawed frogs room tofind one upside down on the bottom of the tank. I thought she had pastaway but when I went to pick her up she moved a little. I put in ashallow pot of water and found out that she can not move her waste downand I decided to keep her in shallow water since she can't move Iam scared she will not be able to get air and drown, she wouldn'teat anything so I tried aquarium salt and gel Tek (neomycin) but nochange she wouldn't eat it so I tried Melafix and after a coupledays she got sores on her back that wasn't open they just lookedlike big bubbles so I talked to the pet store and they gave metetracycline she is on her fifth day of treatment and all her soreshave cleared up but one. She still will not eat and is losing a lot ofweight and her skin is loose and shedding a lot. I have tried feedingher the usual feeder fish and nothing I have also tried crickets,ReptoMin, and sinking brine shrimp pellets but she shows no interest Iam very concerned I don't have a clue what is wrong with her andwhy she can't move she does move her front but she only has onefront leg (since she was a baby) and it doesn't help her get aroundat all. Please help me I don't know what I would do if I lose mylittle froggy. She just had 50 tadpoles which now have sprouted legs. Iwould be very grateful for any advice. oh sorry by the way my name isTricia. Sometimes these little frogs make mad dashes to thesurface for air. If the gap between the water and the top of the tankis close they might hit their head on the top of the tank and causesome trauma to the spinal cord. I don't think it is a disease butcan't be sure. I would keep the water as clean as possible andoffer some brown worms sold at the fish store for tropical fish. frogshave a difficult time refusing live food if they arehungry.-Chuck>

African Clawed frogs definitely won't live well with any sort of fish that is small. The reason, of course, is that African Clawed frogs will eat ANYTHING that they can fit into their mouths. Don't forget that they may look small when you buy them, but they grow and this needs to be taken into account when choosing fish-pals. See the for more info. African Clawed Frog eating fish flakes

Algae eating fishes are not included in this calculation. This rule is an unspecified one. However, for ADCFs the area of the bottom of the tank is more important than the volume of the tank. In my experience I can offer you the following data for the stocking density for African Dwarf Clawed Frog tanks (without fish) that are appropriate when the points under are considered. These calculations consider the faeces, water quality and social stress for the animals.This is a video of me feeding my African Clawed Frog with crickets, first one was live, second one dead. The African Clawed Frog will eat live or dead regardless. Frozen blood worms or sometimes even feeder goldfish and minnows can serve as a tasty snack. have some advantages. Small catfish () and a lot of other small and gentle-natured fish can make keeping ADCFs easier. They consume uneaten food so you do not have to remove it. (A tank containing colourful fish will also bring more understanding from your partner if he or she does not share your interest in frogs.)
African Dwarf Clawed Frogs can eat very small fish like baby guppies or neons. they co-exist peacefully with fishes longer than 1.5 cm (0.75 inch).
Algeae eating fish, e.g. , in my opinion are not necessary. If water condtions are okay you will not have problems with algae. Please don't use . They are wild caught and quite sensitive to changes in water conditions. needs tanks at least 100 cms (40 inches) long.
One disadvantage on keeping ADCFs together with fishes is that the frogs' breeding behaviour is negatively affected and the females may not be inclined to lay eggs. If you want to keep fish in a community tank with ADCFs you should pay serious attention to the following points:African clawed frogs ( species) or ACF's are suited for life indoors inaquariums. They are not a pond frog (except in Africa) but I am mentioning them here for thosewho keepthem in aquariums. They have interesting behavioral and reproductive characteristics. Africanclawed frogs, such as , commonly sold as a "Grow-A-Frog," grow toabout 5 inches. They eat things live black worms, small live fish, and really whatever they canfit in their mouths! African clawed frogs prefer a temperature around 75 degrees F. Being fullyaquatic, they do not require a haul out site. They are pudgy with sharp rear claws. There is analbino form commonly sold. Because I do not know much about them and have never keptthem, I refer you to the .
