Our African Dwarf Frogs live in a small aquarium that they came with. It contains "living gravel", colored gravel, and a small bamboo plant. They also came with some little food pellets, of which they eat two each two days per week. This has been a great investment for us as they are very easy to take care of, once set up. The set up was not necessarily difficult, but I do feel it worthwhile to note that our first set of two frogs died in transit. These two seem very happy and healthy (they have been moved, glass has been tapped, our house is very LOUD) and seem fine.
The frogs are brown speckled in color. Although they aren't the prettiest of colors, my kids don't seem to mind and are enamored of them. They are very active little guys, swimming around and kind of "playing" with each other in a "tag" style way. The enclosure only needs cleaned about once every 6 months.
The cons to these frogs are that they are not the kind of animal you can take out and play with. They remain in the enclosure, kind of like a fish, and are for viewing only. This may be kind of boring as a pet for many people- but for my eight and four year old kids it is apparently hours of fun!
