Climbing African Dwarf Frogs?

I'm considering getting an african dwarf frog for my tank, but I am concerned that he will be able to use the rocks along the back and sides (pics in my gallery) to escape. Can/will these frogs climb out of the water if given the chance?

-J

Yes they will. My parents had one that climbed out of the tank using a fake plant that could reach the surface of the water. We found it halfway across the living room from the tank, still alive. We placed it back in the tank and it lived for a long time after that. I have seen your pics and all that I would have to say to that is to have any openings in the back where the rocks reach the surface as closed up as possible.

HTH.

Not a problem as long as you seal your tank up good.
