    LOL I know it has nothing at all to do with phones but I need help with my African Dwarf Frogs. They are suddenly floating at the top of the tank and cant seem to get down to the bottom where they belong. Temp in the tank is good. Its clean and they have food but arent bloated. They are in with only two goldfish and one Chinese Algae Eater. Everything about them seems normal with the exception of the floating. If anyone out there knows anything about them I would appreciate some advice. And please no flush em down the toilet posts. Only frogs to most people but members of the family to my 3 kids. Thanks.

    You were a kid once? Never picked up a frog or toad and brought it home to a thrilled mom? Some of us lucky ones got to keep them!

    LOL! Food to some = pets to others. Honestly I didnt expect anyone here to know much about them but figured with it being such a large forum it was worth a shot. Take rats for example. If I saw a post about rats I would most definitely reply as I know a great deal about them. Eww gross rodents blah blah blah - yeah I know lol. So you never know. Anyway thanks for taking the time to search. I had done that as well and came up with the same "zen position" which isnt the case. This is more of a "hey we are dropping dead over here position" lol. After several more searches and a few calls to petstores I found they are not taking to the food that was sold with them so basically they are starving to death. Got new food and hopefully the two healthier ones will survive. Doubt the two floaters will. If they drop dead on me Ill mail em to switchedgear so you can have a snack lmao. Again thank you for taking the time to search. Much appreciated.

    I think they are different classes in the animal kingdom, amphibians and reptiles... but I don't know much more than that.

    I don't think they like to be called "dwarf"... I think it is PC to call them "little amphibians".

    • You can get them back to the bottom of the tank with some basic supplies:
    • piece of string
    • ability to tie small knots
    • old mobile phone you don't want anymore


    1. Tie end of string to phone
    2. Tie other end of string to frog leg
    3. drop phone in water
    4. Frog at bottom of tank


    **Same works for mob hits except substitute rope for string, and anchor for phone.

    Actually they arent reptiles at all. They are amphibians. They live their entire life in water and are 100% aquatic only coming to the top to breathe. They are smooth skinned and do not have scales like a reptile and are moist not dry. They lay soft eggs not hard eggs and they lay them in water or very damp places unlike reptiles. Frog vs reptile lesson for the day complete.

    LMAO you wont believe this but I actually did hold one of them under water trying to hand feed him. I felt like I was going to drown him though so I stopped. Your method might work better though!
