I won't use sand substrate with my frogs, they could accidentally eat it, but I'm more concerned with it trapping waste or uneaten food. This causes a build up of bacteria, which can be harmful to the frogs. I have met far too many people that own either frogs or fish, and they don't own an aquarium vacuum/python. The ones that do, don't know how to use it properly, and will change the water, but not clean their substrate, or they will wait until the water has evaporated before they will top up the tank.

African Dwarf Frogs can be wonderful tank mates and co-exist peacefully with smaller-sized fishes in a community tank. They can be great tank mates with , other , Neon Tetras, Bettas and other smaller fishes if you want to add an amphibian to your fish aquarium tank. Make sure they get a share of their food in a community tank with fishes since they’re not fast swimmers. African Dwarf Frog Food ? - Aquarium Advice - Aquarium Forum Community

African Dwarf Frogs are scavenger hunters so their diet mainly consist of uneaten fish food, decaying plant matter, live food such as Brine Shrimps, White Worms, etc. If you are offering fish food, try getting the ones that sinks instead of float. Feed your African Dwarf Frogs 1-2 meals a day, the meal should be consumed within 1-3 minutes to avoid contaminating your aquarium tank.Most amphibians only eat live foods. Aquarium frogs also prefer live foods but will eat somenon-living foods. If there is a choice, they will go for live foods first. African dwarf frogs(ADF's) love small worms and insects such as blackworms, bloodworms (insect larvae of aspecies of midge), mosquito larvae, brine shrimp (not so much a favorite), daphnia, and so on. Ifthe frogs find something they want to eat, the ADF's will do their bounce and suck move. WhenI put in live blackworms daily, the frogs ambled over in their stealth mode. Then, they did a littlehop while opening their mouths. The suction that was created sucked up the worms, and thefrogs chomped away, very satisfied. ADF's are attracted by smell and movement. They look formovement first but if they are hungry enough, they may suck up something that smells good butis not alive. As a side note, my ADF's lived with small fish and shrimp and never tried to eatthem. But, they did once bounce/suck on a large false Siamese algae eater who probablywondered what in the world was going on! One person told me a large ghost shrimp ate theirADF's leg off. If live foods cannot be obtained, then frozen ones are the next best choice. Minehave eaten frozen bloodworms with relish, and many frog lovers report these are favorites.While African dwarf frogs are generally peaceful and easy to care for, a prospective owner should be sure that they are provided with a spacious aquarium and fed the proper foods. If proper care is taken, African dwarf frogs can live up to 10 years in a home aquarium.Another type of fish that should be avoided with African dwarf frogs, are fish with long flowing fins. Because of their poor eyesight, frogs will often mistake the long fins for food, and will latch on, only to be dragged around the aquarium. This will eventually result in torn fins for the fish – something that no fish owner wants.
