Place to post About aquatic frogs?

So, today, i picked up an ADF, [African Dwarf Frog] and I cant seem to find a thread or somewhere to post about them for advice and gloating!

Theres a section for turtles, but not froggies?!

And this site, [bettafish, and tropicalfishkeeping both] have helped me so much and has given me most, if not all, of my information!

Id absolutely love it if this site could also help me with m y frogs!

Last night i found out is a clawed, not a dwarf o.O! his toes gave him away..

Hes still pretty small, about an inch long, ill try to measure him, its nose to vent right? how big will he get and how fast? based on size, how old is he now?

Ive been feeding him TetraMin Tropical Granules, thier a sinking food i bought for when i get my cories. Ive read that theyll eat almost anything, and love bloodworms, but all i have are freeze dried, and ive read that that might impact thier bowels and give them bloating? Plus, ive been feeding him with a dropper, he loves it!, and i just cant get bloodworms to get in the syringe!

Right now, hes in a gallon fishbowl, as a QT before i put him in the 2.5.

Hes got a pot and some rocks, and as far as i can tell, hes not sick in any way, ive read a few articles about frog diseases, though id like some tips to look for? any signs?

how often should i be changing his gallon QT? Daily?

And the rocks i have in the tank are about the wieght of a marble, but they are smooth river rocks, washed many times over, will they be okay for him? ive read that when they move around the rocks, which he does alot, if the rock is too big, it could fall on them and cause them to not get air and drown...how big is to big?

Ill probably have many more questions, and here are the first two pictures i took of him/her..im uploading more now.. maybe you can tell me if its a boy or a girl?

Yeah, and he'll need more than a 2.5 gallon tank!

The deal with rocks: You can either make them SO heavy that he can't get under them, or have lighter ones. BUT..if you use gravel, do not feed on the gravel, it can cause impactions.

I would invest in live and frozen foods for the frog, and you can use a small plastic lid as a 'plate' for the frog to feed on without risking eating a rock!

They are messy animals, so I would change the water daily until he's moved.

I actually have a 39 gallon in my basement i was planning on using for growing out a smaller pleco, and some cories, I could definitely do a bristle nose pleco and a few of these clawed frogs!

How fast do they grow? He is only about 1.75 inches right now, and until i get the 39 set up, could i house him in the 2.5 [sans betta?]

Oh, and i looked at the site we get out tree frog flies from, for blood worms or black worms and i came across these guys...

Phoenix Worms - Feeder Insects and Supplies | Josh's Frogs

What do you think?
