African Dwarf Clawed frogs are a great pet for young children and people dabbling in pet ownership for the first time. I rescued my African Dwarf Clawed frogs from a small novelty shop at the beach. They were trapped in a small 6 inch by 6 inch cube. Once I brought mine home, I moved them to a one gallon tank, which was suitable for their size. They are extremely easy to care for also, eating pellets voraciously.
I would suggest at least a one gallon tank for housing your frogs, larger if you have more, because they require frequent water changes. African Clawed frogs, although avid eaters, often allow some food to sink to the bottom of the tank, causing water clouding. These pets also require some cover, but not much. I provided mine with a few artificial plants, which they gravitated towards.
I kept my frogs separate from other species, which seemed to be best for them. I was fortunate to have my frogs for two years. They were a very good pet and very enjoyable. I would recommend African Dwarf clawed frogs for first time aquarium owners and those with busy schedules. While water changed are time consuming, They are an overall healthy, hardy species.
