Re: Congo frogs #11
Danios tend to feed from the top area of the tank, frogs from the bottom. If you thaw the bloodworm out un a small cup of tank water then pour it in, the main lump should sink straight to the bottom. Although the danios will still go for it you may find it gives the frogs a better chance. Ours seem to manage ok like that, we also use 'mini' bloodworm

Re: Congo frogs #12
Steve what do you mean by 'mini' bloodworm? I also ,feed the ADFs on brine shrimp and they are def not starving! I usually do a week of bloodworm and a week of brins shrimp and they seem to like it but i don't feed them everyday. Normally every other day or every 2 days. I still feed the fish every day. So everyone is happy!!!!

Re: Congo frogs #13
er.. I mean there where two packets on the shelf "bloodworm" and "mini bloodworm" and I picked "mini" seems to be about half the size of regular bloodworms

They get a generous dose of bloodworm to share every other day and the fish get granules on the days in between.

Re: Congo frogs #15
If it's albino its unlikely to be a dwarf frog, it's more than likely and ACF (African Clawed Frog) which eats fish so be very careful! They grow way bigger than ADF's as well.

Re: Congo frogs #18
hi everyone,
Ive just put 2 in my tank and think theyre very entertaining to watch. Theyre in there with 3 platy's, 1 moonlight gourami, 1 siamese fighter, 2 bamboo shrimp and 3 apple snails. everyone seems to get on ok which im pleased about. Im feeding the frogs frozen blood worms although the fish like to scoff these too! I hope the frogs are getting enough, i try to coax the fish to one end of the tank with flakes whilst feeding the frogs at the other end!
