I am currently selling 2.2oz containers of my personal mixture of floating pellets that best suit the nutrition
of African Clawed Frogs. I have found over time that a balanced, varied, pelleted diet supplemented with live and frozen foods
really is the best option for feeding frogs. My mixture has been formulated with different brands of floating pellets which
all play a role in daily nutrition of an African Clawed Frog.
Contents of the In Depth African Clawed Frog Diet includes:
Reptomin- fortified with vitamins, minerals and calcium to ensure balanced supplementation.
ReptoTreat Suprema - Krill enrich floating food stick, great for color enhancement of reticulated and
OmegaOne Kelp Pellets - enriched with veggie matter (yes, frogs need a percentage of plant matter in
their diet) and fresh seafood. Main ingredients are Whole Kelp, Spirulina, Whole Salmon, Black Cod, Whole Herring, and a mix
of seafoods including shrimp, muscles and squid.
Sho Koi Optima - Contains ammune system boosters for added protection during times of stress. Preventative
measure against illness and disease.
Hikari Gold color enhancing cichlid pellet - Higher level of protein for the
carnivorious nature of our ACF, plus natural color enhancers. This food darkens the pattern on reticulated albinos to deep
shades of purple. Also enhances the shine of gold pigment in golden albinos.
Hikari Turtle Sticks - this diet contains three pellet sticks in one. Although marketed for aquatic
turtles, all the key ingredients play the same role in conditioning the dietary needs of ACF.
- Yellow stick: Staple nutrition stick contains the highest quality proteins, minerals and multi-vitamins to promote
growth and help keep *African Clawed Frogs in peek condition.
- Green stick : Fortified calcium stick for improved bone structure and stregnth of growing frogs, and helps to prevent
diseases caused by calcium defienciey.
- Red Stick : Conditioning stick which contains chitosan extracted from custraceans to activate the frog's metabolism
and help keep them active during cooler months.
Nutrafin Spirulina Sticks - formulated for vegetarian cichlids, also addes to the plant matter
requirements in an ACF's diet.
Nutrafin Gammarus Sticks - Gammarus is a freshwater shrimp that is a highly palatable source
if lipids including Omega-3 fatty acids. Excelent addition to this mix of variety pellets.
Freeze Dried Gammarus - Throughout the mixture of pellets I have mixed in freeze dried gammarus
shrimps. This is a tasty treat which ACF love and can be easily consumed at the surface without creating much uneaten waste.
***All of these foods listed above are premixed ahead of time, to ensure an even mix of all ingredients. The idea behind
this diet is not only to combine all essential elements for optimum nutrition, but to also offer a variety at every feeding.
No need to give them equal amounts of each type of pellet, they will have a mix of it at every feeding. Allowing "nature"
to determine the variety of the diet at every feeding. This way your frogs gets a balanced, varied diet every day!***
*I also HIGHLY reccomend you purchase a product called Lymnozyme sold from www.xenopus.com. This produce prevents the dreaded Red Leg and is a must have for any ACF tank. I personally use this product
and LOVE it. I strongly encourage you to purchase it. *
