OH MY GOOOOOODNESS!!!! Okay, from the TOP view, she looks like mine, from underneath? She's WAY fatter!!! She's, like, a little ball of frog! No wonder you're worried. I don't know! I've gone down to feeding mine every other day, even though the little guy is soooo small compared to my female. I've read that they should only be fed every other day once they reach adulthood, and since they mated, I guess. . . that makes him an adult. But since she's in a community, I don't know if fasting is something that is even do-able. I hope she's just fat or eggy, and not actually ill. Mine DID get fatter just before they mated. . . so yeah, hopefully she's just slipping into something a little more comfortable. . . in a froggy kinda way. :/

ETA: I REALLY just wanna POKE that tummy! Or blow raspberries on it. Sorta. . . I mean, it's just so CUTE!!! D'aaawwwwww, frog tums

Hey. . .


2 Female Dwarf African Frogs resting at the surface of an aquarium.

Female Dwarf African Frog - Hymenochirus boettgeri on the left
Female Dwarf African Frog - Hymenochirus curtipes on the right



Watcha think? Maybe yours is just a different brand of ADF than mine? That kind IS awfully chubby :)

Because they're silly little frogs, and the person who took this picture, Stuart, has a REALLY nice setup for them - they're happy, resting on floating plants at the surface, lol! I've never seen MINE do this - but I have seen my male laying on his back on the floor. He started off in zen and just. . . drifted over, lol!

Yeah, maybe - Hymenochirus Curtipes? My female looks like the one on the left, so maybe she's boettgeri?

Actually those females are pressed between floating plants and the glass of the aquarium. Lol and don't worry about overweight females unless they can't swim down from the surface, that is when you have to think it may be dropsy, and at that point start looking out for 'shrek balloon frogs' because dropsy does attack ADFs too.

Your female is beautiful and chubby, I wish I could get a good shot of my current female, but let me go and scour my photobucket for old pics of my previous pair, Jackie was pretty huge too... Lol

EDIT:
Jackie!!


And Jackie beside my albino male Casper:




Also!! Wishes do come true! Current female Bonnie resting at the surface, lookit that fat belly!:

Hehehehehe Atilla. Atilla the Hun choked to death.. isn't that ironic?

Uhh Giz, do you know about why the female would be attacking the male? They avoid each other now, but at feeding time one day it got really violent. o-o
