We actually acquired our little clawed frog from a friend for my son's 3rd birthday as part of a fully stocked aquarium gift.
They are very easy to upkeep. Since they spend 100% of their time under water, they don't require a terrarium set up like other frogs would. I've never fed him anything other than what the fish eat, either, and he seems to be doing well with that.
They are not, however, good for handling in my opinion. I can't imagine the work it would take to drag this little guy out of his hidey hole to hold him, and he doesn't seem keen on trying. Even though he's my son's "pet" I wouldn't ever allow him to hold the frog, as the frog is very small and very fragile.
They are great for a community tank, however. Community fish are just fine around these little frogs, and can enhance a child or classroom tank.
