Re: other critters for tanks

be careful with the "little" frogs you see on shops, especially the albino
ones, which are always Xenopus.  i have 5 little true dwarf african frogs
(Hymenochirus) which are small brown aquatic frogs.  they live in a 10 gallon
with apisto babies, rams and catfish.  they are so small they won't eat other
fish and they eat flake food.

the Xenopus, available in both albino and normal brown varieties, gets to be
huge (over 3") and will eat all your fish.  often X. babies are sold and
people mistake them for the true dwarfs.
