View Full Version : Keeping Ghost Shrimp with Clawed Frogs

I have an african clawed in my 20 gal tank, and was wondering if adding a ghost shrimp or two would be a bad idea with the frog?

I wouldn't add anything to a tank with clawed frogs. They'll eat any fish small enough for them that you put into the tank.

So, no - ghost shrimp would be a bad idea. :) Unless you want to feed it ghost shrimp.

Actually, the frog is in a tank with plenty of fish, (see my sig) and has been kept with things as small as guppy fry, and has never seemed to be a problem before.

Well ghost shrimp are about $1/dozen here. I wouldn't buy the 50 cent ghost shrimp from petco/petsmart. The feeder ghost shrimp for a dollar, would do just as well, and will work as a good test to check your frog's aggressiveness. Even if the the frog eats them occasionally, I think the shrimp will be able to hold their own for a while they are fairly quick moving. If you've ever tried to catch a ghost shrimp, you'll notice they can jump back very quickly when startled.

My african clawed frog ate one of my cory's, they are glutons that would eat everything they can get their mouth around
