CDC, in collaboration with many state and local health departments, is continuing to investigate an ongoing, nationwide outbreak of Salmonella Typhimurium infections associated with African dwarf frogs, a type of water frog, and water from their habitats (e.g., tanks or aquariums). In recent interviews, ill persons answered questions about exposure to animals, especially aquatic animals, during the week before becoming ill. Sixty-three percent (67/106) of ill persons interviewed reported contact with frogs in the week before their illness began. Of ill persons who could recall the type of frog they had contact with, 65% (41/63) identified African dwarf frogs. The median time from acquiring a frog and illness onset was 15 days, with a range of 7 to 240 days. Seventy-seven percent (80/104) of interviewed ill persons reported that they were not aware of the risk of a Salmonella infection from amphibians such as frogs.
This is a tutorial video on setting up a 10 gallon planted tank for dwarf aquatic frogs.

Hello, I cleaned the aquarium gravel with a vac today. I have 2 frogs. I can always find them, but now I can only find one! If he got buried in the gravel, will he find his way out? I have exhausted everything I know to find the other one. There are three main species of Aquatic Frogs that are available in pet stores today:

4. Turtles will eat up ADF before you can even blink. In the wild turtles eat small aquatic creatures such as frogs, tadpoles, fish, etc. These two species should never ever be mixed.For aquatic creatures, the general rule is to have a gallon of water per frog to give it breathing space, so to speak. That goes for the social African Dwarf Frog as well. They are freshwater creatures, so use plain and clean unchlorinated mineral water. Otherwise, use anti-chlorine tablets on tap water or just let it stay for 48 hours so the chlorine evaporates before putting in the frogs. Two other things to remember: use a shallow 2-3ft fish tank. Dwarf frogs are not known to be great swimmers and anything deeper can be a challenge for these frogs to surface for air now and then. And the other thing is to cover the fish tank. You don’t want any of the frogs to leap out of the fish tank.As the name suggests, these dwarf frogs are quite small, just around 1.5 inches in length. The females, as is often the case with frogs, can grow a bit larger, almost by half an inch. Native to Sub-Saharan Africa, the African Dwarf Frog (Hymenochiru) also goes by the name of Aquatic Dwarf Frog. And that’s because they live almost entirely underwater, though they are air breathers as well and do emerge from the water from time to time.Underwater dwarf frogs have pretty basic requirements for their aquarium. Any aquarium housing these frogs needs to have a sturdy lid, as they are celebrated jumpers. They also require a tank of at least ten gallons. A frog aquarium should have lots of aquarium plants and other hiding places. A frog will actually stay out in the open more if it has enough hiding places to feel safe in a fish tank.Dwarf frogs love to hide behind marine foliage. So it’s a good idea to have aquatic plants in their tank habitat. They’d look nice on your aquarium besides. Any water plant species will do as these frogs are not known to be destructive to any plant life. If you have to use artificial plants, soft silk-based fake plants have to be your choice. Anything harder, like the more common plastic plants, can scratch and injure their delicate bodies.Underwater dwarf frogs are not much harder to feed than aquarium fish. You can use any meat-containing flake food, like brine shrimp flakes, as a dietary staple. Additionally, you can feed live or frozen foods like blood-worms and brine shrimp as the occasional treat. Most pet shops carry these items. Only feed what the frogs can eat in a few minutes. Any food beyond this will rot in the tank and can foul the water.
