It got me wondering what species they sold in those things. After thinking about it, I thought it was probably ADFs. Turns out, the kits are still on the market, and the frogs are ACFs. (The seller names the genus in one spot on their website, but never the species. I had to check a couple other sites to find out for sure.) That fact really surprised me.
Good to know. So, don't mix a Grow-A-Frog with anything else you want to keep alive.
Those Grow-A-Frog things are sold by the National Geographic site. I was going to get one, because I thought it'd be cool to watch a frog grow from a tadpole into a frog, but it's good to know what kind of frog those are. I won't get one unless I'm going to set up an entirely new tank for that specific frog and nothing else. Thanks for that information!

When I was a kid my mom bought me the grow a frog tadpoles from Insect Lore. The first time they arrived the post office put them on the ground and when I opened them the tadpoles had all been eaten by ants. My mom called and they sent a replacement order. I got eight tiny tadpoles with the guarantee that one would make it.
A year later I had eight huge monsters. They lived in one of those critter keepers. No heater, no filter. I just did weekly water changes.
The company said these were dwarf frogs but they were huge. I remember them being brown not albino like the clawed frogs.
One day my cousin woke me up to tell me something bad was happening to my frogs. I came downstairs to see one frog devouring one of the others. The next thing I knew he reached out and grabbed another frog and all I saw was legs flailing out of the frogs mouth. These guys were all the same size and got feed an ample amount of food.
I now had five frogs. The cannibal frog got to live by himself but they all continued to grow and grow. My mom called the company who still maintained that these were ADF’s.
One day I came home from school and they were gone. My mom had decided to put them in the pond while I was away. 😢
They had some beautiful huge clawed frogs at my local pet store the other day. I’m still deciding if and how I can get them. One tank has my Betta and the other has my Bichir so I don’t think I could.

This is why we have invasive species. And Also why I respect Californias policy on certain species being illegal.

I think its a good idea and hence the color and how it sits in one place till it moves quickly im sure there wont be any harm done.

Oops sorry Russell. I meant to say I think its a good idea, and that you may be able to keep both ADF and a Betta since to color of the frogs are mute and camouflaged and move very quickly, no harm may be done to them by the betta. Not only that but they also can eat pellets which makes them easier to feed. This is my response to the original post.
