You want ADF, but make sure you know the diff when you go to the petstore becasue frequently, they dont!

I have one of these dudes and it will eat ANYTHING that it can stuff into it's mouth.....including your platies, so you def. want to get an ADF.

Do you want a dwarf or a clawed frog?

I have an ADF, they only get about 4-5 inches long...he loves it in my tank, hasn't touched my mollies or mini clown pleco. They all seem to get along great. He loves to eat frozen blood worms about every 3 days, and frequently sits on top of our shark statue and watches what is going on...they also like to hide out. You'll have to watch the back of your tank to make sure there aren't any openings, they tend to want to jump out, mine hasn't but we are cautious! Check out my gallery to see a pic of our ADF!

I believe the ADF's get to be about 2" long and the ACF's are the ones that got to be 4-5" long. I've had both and the ACF's are definately bigger. I had ADF's for a year and they never got any bigger than 1 1/2".

You guys are forgetting that he has a BGKF in his tank. That means instant food for the Ghost once its bigger

thats nice to know about my ADF, the lfs told me it could get to as big as 4-5 inches...I thought that was going to be too big, (shucks, I was hoping to be able to talk my husband into a 29 gal once the frog got a bit bigger) ... oh well, 1 1/2 inches will work great for my 10 gal! Thanks Zagz!

You can always play dumb and talk the hubby into a 29 gal anyway.
