An is a must for an African dwarf frog habitat because they are frogs, after all, and they do like to jump. In nature this isn't a problem because if they jump out of the water, they just fall back back into the water. But if they jump out of your tank and land anywhere except the water, they will die. African dwarf frogs are fully aquatic, which means that they must live in water. If they're out of the water for more than 15 or 20 minutes, they will dehydrate and die.

Dwarf frogs love to hide behind marine foliage. So it’s a good idea to have aquatic plants in their tank habitat. They’d look nice on your aquarium besides. Any water plant species will do as these frogs are not known to be destructive to any plant life. If you have to use artificial plants, soft silk-based fake plants have to be your choice. Anything harder, like the more common plastic plants, can scratch and injure their delicate bodies.Dwarf frogs love to hide behind marine foliage.

Anything harder, like the more common plastic plants, can scratch and injure their delicate bodies.Ideally, your frogs housing will depend on its natural habitat. Because your frog tank will need to be waterproof, and since frogs, unlike many reptiles, can be easily damaged when jumping against the walls of a new environment, it is generally recommended that you obtain an aquarium from your pet store rather than go through the trouble of building one yourself. (Unless you know alot about building glass tanks)African dwarf frog habitats should consist mainly of a sturdy glass aquarium. Because the African dwarf only grows to a length of just over two inches, it can be kept comfortably in a 10- to 15-gallon aquarium. The aquarium should not be completely full, because the African dwarf frog is a slow swimmer and needs to surface to breathe. There should be approximately 1 gallon of water per frog in the habitat.The African dwarf frog is a small, aquatic frog that is commonly kept as a pet. It is sometimes kept with other dwarf frogs, by itself or in community tanks with fish and other aquatic animals. The African dwarf frog is easy to care for and can live up to five years, but it is susceptible to illness if not kept in a proper habitat.A simple aquarium heater can be used to heat the water in the African dwarf frog habitat, and the water should be kept between 74 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
