Male died. I thought he was shedding his skin, but I honestly have no clue.
RIP.

ANyway, here are pictures of Haste, the female. She's now in her own 5 gallon tank.









She's almost halfway out of the water lmao. Adventurous!

Pancake shed the other day, it's kind of gross how the African frogs shove the dead skin in their mouth! Bleh!

Is it possible to make this thread a sticky? I refer to it so often in preparation for adding ADFs to my tank, plus it's fun to go through reading about the quirks and silly antics of everyone's frogs. :)

I agree with you, Torla. I stumble across so many ADF question threads, and it's sad but information on proper care is still pretty difficult to find. The mod team is working on the articles/stickies/profiles right now, I'm sure you've noticed, lol. It's a big job, won't happen overnight, but I do think we need to get a good care guide up somewhere obvious! Some of the info on the intro here is a bit out-dated, though. . . anybody want to write a new one up for review?

Mar, I'm sorry to hear about your loss. I don't want to make you paranoid, I've had frogs that like to come right up for feedings, too. But keep an eye on her. If she seems like she's trying to escape the water, or seems to be having difficulty with shedding, these both *could* by signs of Chytrid. Also could be just normal frog behavior, too - so I really don't want to get you paranoid! Just keep a close eye, hon. *hugs* I'm so sorry, again. . . T.T

Ooh, an updated guide would be amazing. :) No rush -- I know how it is being a mod of a big forum.

While I'm here, let me just confirm that 2 ADFs in a filtered 10 gal. with a single betta won't overstock the tank, right? Could I even do 3, or is 2 the limit for the size and current population?

If my betta dies, could I consider a second frog? I know quarantine is important, but I've only had her a couple weeks

With a betta in the mix, you have to be sure to dedicate a lot of room to hiding places for the frogs, otherwise you may end up with turf wars between the frogs and betta.

you can do 3 in there with a betta.
