do you think it will matter, my husband just bought a dwarf albino frog today, without me knowing, I am afraid it is going to freak out my molly about to deliver her fry? Any suggestions?

I'm not sure there is any such thing as a dwarf albino frog from what I've read. It's a clawed frog right?

sorry, he says it is a dwarf african? I was not there, very upset at him right now because I like to be able to research something before I get it...now I feel like I am scrambling to get info...

well he is a popular frog, but my guess is that he will get huge. The little albino frogs I see at the store are bigger than my dwarf frog that I've had about a year. From all I've read, albino dwarf frogs don't probably exist. I only wanted you to be prepared for something that could possibly, gulp, eat your fish when it gets older.

Anyone one else have any input???

I have 2 albino clawed frogs and they are quite large. I have them in their own tank as their claws are very sharp! They are adorable and I love them to death but wouldn't risk them with other fish.

I was told that if they have web feet, they are dwarf. Mine is teeny tiny.

The fingers on the clawed frogs "arms" are not webbed, the "legs" are. Both are webbed with the dwarf frogs.

dwarf african frog, final conclusion

ok, both are webbed, so it must be some sort of dwarf. this thing is teeny, about an inch and 1/2 long, attached is a pic, according to the receipt my husband gave me it is a dwarf african frog. I also am adding a pic of my molly, would any of you know if she looks like she is getting ready to deliver her fry? This will be the first time for me.

It is probably a dwarf, but it isn't albino. The albino ones are white. That's good, he'll stay small I think. Mine looks the same with more black spots.

Nice marble molly. She's pretty big. My albino tiger barb is pregnant and I'm looking for eyes constantly.

There's another thread about a pregnant molly on here somewhere I think.

I have ADFs in a couple of my mixed tanks, they pretty much leave the fish alone.
In my experience, my fish have always become incredibly square before delivering. Like a lego block with fins.
