Scientific Name: Hymenochirus boettgeri


 
 
Golden African Clawed Frog   Here is an African Clawed Frog, which is often called an albino, but you can see it has golden pigments in its body and black eyes. You can also see the eyes are on top of its head not on the sides of its head.
     
Wally Billingham's African Dwarf Frog, Hymenochirus boettgeri   Here is a picture of an African Dwarf Frog from Wally Billingham, where the caption says, "Here is one of my dwarf frogs, with a fat belly full of bloodworms". The eyes on an African Dwarf Frog are on the sides of its head.

Comments
African Dwarf Frogs are cute, hardy, and very mild tempered. They are truly aquatic and do not need to get out of the water. They do very well in a large fish bowl with one Betta, from three to five Ghost Shrimp, a Mystery Snail, and some Live Aquatic Plants. But unlike those animals these frogs need to eat live Black Worms at least twice a week.

There is another frog called the African Clawed Frog, which is a predator and is illegal in the state of California, so we've never had them or even seen a live one.

The African Clawed Frogs are easy to distinguish from the African Dwarf Frogs by the number of claws on their hands and by the location of their eyes on their heads. The African Clawed Frogs have 3 claws, and the African Dwarf Frogs have 4 "fingers" on each hand. An ACF has eyes on top of its head, and an ADF has eyes on the sides of its head.

 
 

Appropriate Home
These small African Dwarf Frogs can live in fish bowls and aquariums with or without an aquarium heater at a temperature between about 65 and 82 degrees F.

 
 

Recommended Diet
African Dwarf Aquarium Frogs need live food such as Live Black Worms and live brine shrimp. Perhaps they will eat frozen brine shrimp and frozen blood worms. A few frogs will eat freeze dried blood worms and maybe even some flake fish food or dry shrimp pellets.

Plan on feeding Live Black Worms to your African Dwarf Frogs at least twice a week. I feed my frogs Live Black Worms every other day.

If you keep fish with your Frogs, it will be a problem feeding Live Black Worms to your Frogs, because the fish will eat the Black Worms before the frogs find the worms.

One solution to this problem is to buy an inexpensive turkey baster, and use it to squirt the worms down near the Frogs, so the Frogs can eat some of the worms before the fish eat all the worms. This method usually works.

Incidentally, these turkey basters are not labeled for use in aquariums, so using them in an aquarium will violate our usual guideline of only using items in our aquariums that are labeled for use in aquariums.

But these basters are manufactured for use around human foods, so we presume that turkey basters are safe for use with our fish too. Click here for more information about how avoid contaminating your aquarium.

Compatibility
African Dwarf Frogs will congregate together in a corner or under an ornament. They seem to enjoy being together, so it's probably best to keep more than one together.

These frogs are good tank mates for Small Tetras like Neon Tetras and Glow Light Tetras, Harlequin Rasboras, White Clouds, one Betta, Ghost Shrimp, and Corydoras Catfish.

Aquarium Frog
     
Someone reported to us that this African Dwarf Aquarium Frog was seen tiptoeing home late last night, after too much fun at a rowdy party. It's possible, but knowing this particular frog the way we do, we've got our doubts.
 
 
     
Here is a plump Breeder Female Frog, and she's been worried about her husband, who someone said was out all night tap dancing.

 About our Fish ...
Almost all the photographs and videos, shown on this web site, were taken by us of our fish in our aquariums.
 
Compare the healthy, beautiful, energetic fish in our beautiful aquariums to the fish in our competitors pictures. Their fish often look thin with clamped fins and poor color.
We buy the highest quality fish, produced by the best fish farms or caught by the best collectors of wild fish, then we take incredibly good care of our fish in our beautiful aquariums.
 
If you compare the pictures on this site to our competitors pictures, you can instantly see, our fish and aquariums are better!  ;^ }
Will the fish you get from us look like the fish in our pictures? No! This is similar to buying kittens and puppies that will change as they grow to become cats and dogs.
 
We stock and ship fish that are the ideal size to sell. Not so small that they will not do well when shipped. Yet not so big that they have become much more expensive.
 
The fish in almost all of our pictures were young fish like the ones we have for sale that we raised up, and you can too!
