i doubt it :(

what fish do you keep with your frog? what normally happens is that the frog cant get to the food before the fish and therefore starves to death :(

we only have different species of tetra and we only got the frog last night, I am stumped, I suppose it could be hiding but if it is it is hiding well, I have searched in the plants and the rock in the tank.
It did eat last night so doubt if it would have starved to death already. I miss Freddo :(

Theres no way it could escape via the lid, it is secure. It couldnt be inthe filter could it?

ok, have hade another lookie at the lid on the tank and there is a gap, it has possibly gotten through, next Q, if that is the case, I dont suppose it would survive long out the water and where the heck do we start looking for it?

it can survive a few hours, less on carpeted areas.

try putting a dish of water on the floor and look around... if you have wooden floors then be really quiet and you might hear it slapping on the floor. good luck.

depending on the breed of frog(i'm assuming its a african dwarf frog) and the size of the plec I wouldnt recommend housing them together. i house mine with guppys without issues and other docile fish but even if a plec should swim into the frog by accident it could easily kill it, or stun it and the frog would drown.

yeah, if it's a dwarf they do much better in species tanks. If it's a clawed, then it'll eat your other fish lol.

if you want, set up a 5gal tank with another 2-3 dwarf frogs and it'll be cool. : victory: might even get some breeding going on.

I've got a couple of african dwarf frogs in a comunity tank and I am surprised by how bolshy and boisterous they are. They hold their own at food time and always go for the fish as well which could not possibly fit in their mouths. I love the way they punce on the bloodworm and brine shrimp they get

my claweds used to be like that, but my dwarfs were afraid of the bloodworms LOL

i had 4 ADFs and had a baby plec in with them who was about the same size if not slightly bigger than them and my female killed it! i came in too late to save it. although she wasn't scared of anything, she would even have a go at your hands if they were in the tank.
the boys were a different matter though.
sadly i only have one left he's about 6yrs old, the others where older

I wouldnt be at all surprised if a plec ate a clawed frog if there was a big size difference(some plecs are surprisingly flesh thirsty, feasting on dead fish, fish eggs and of course theres the vampire plec which specialises on eating molluscs).
I had a tank years ago with a large pec and 4 tiny clawed frogs, which eventually turned into 2 frogs until i seperated them.

Aquatic frogs are never a good idea IMO, dwarf frogs stay small and will not eat the fish, but they can be hard to feed. They will not normally eat flake food, but will eat live or frozen bloodworm and similar. The fish will try to eat the food first, making it very hard to give the frogs enough.

The albino clawed frogs, if they are not the dwarf ones, will grow big and may eat small fish. They are also messy and water quality will be difficult to control.

I would recommend spirulina enriched brine for the african dwarfs as mine gulp it more than bloodowrm as I find it takes them a while to take a bloodworm in. Mine have grown fairl quickly and they are quite easy to target feed
