Feeding An African Clawed Frog
How much and how often do you feed a clawed frog? My clawed frog seems to be getting a belly want to make sure I am not over feeding him. Thank you for your help
HI again. I feed my frogs about every other day. Sometimes I feed each 2 to 4 reptomin sticks each, otherwise I will feed one red wriggler worm each. Mine frogs are late juvienal eary adult aged. If you see the frog start to get more plump than it maybe should be, a fasting day or two is a great idea. I know that the older the frog gets the bigger the meal you can feed, but you may have to then fast for 3 to 5 days. It will become fairly easy to notice how full the frog is and when to fast and when to feed.
What do you feed your frog?
I feed him frog pellets I give him about 6 pellets twice a day I'm not sure how old he is I just got him a week ago. So I am not sure if he is a adult or a baby but he is pretty small.
How do you know if its more plump than it should be?
They will look thick around the belly, normally their belly is almost flat. If you are not sure if the frog has been over fed go ahead and fast it a day or so and see if the frog looks more "normal" it won't hurt them. I would think your feeding is about right. Although I'm not familiar with frog pellets and their size. I do Know almost everyone who keeps them feeds ReptoMin sticks as a main staple food. Also your's sounds like a young juvenile.
I recently became the owner of an African Clawed Frog. He's small, only about an inch and a half in length not including his feet. I have plants in my tank for him to munch on, and I already feed my goldfish with Elive Goldfish Color Granules, but I assume that isn't enough for him. What else should I give him to eat, and how often?
(I know ACFs are known for eating their other tankmates, but my goldfish is at least twice his size, so no worries there. When my frog gets big enough for it to be a problem, I'll move him)
Chopped up earthworms I heard do the trick wr
Frozen blood worms, various frozen foods, frog pellets.
While he may not eat the goldie they are not temperature compatible. Also your goldfish will get to 12 inches and will probably start to bully the frog.
I didn't know about the temperature thing :\ I was told that they'd both be fine without a heater. And I plan to get another aquarium soon, so I can separate them and use one tank just for the frog. I probably should have waited until then to buy him, but I couldn't resist. The little guy only has 3 legs!
Glad to hear you're willing to separate him!
The frog will need a 20 gallon long tank with a heater.
How big is your current tank?
Is the goldie a fancy or single tail?
Right now I have a 10 gallon (too small for them all, I know :c) and the goldfish is a fancy tail. I just picked up some bloodworms and a decoration for him to hide in, so hopefully he'll be happy until I can move him.
