In Depth African Clawed Frog Diet

***I am no longer selling this diet! All the information below is available so you can can purchase it all for your frogs. Combine the foods in an air tight storage conatiner.***

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 pigmented AFC.
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 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. *

Before and After Photos
These photos are of my reticulated albino female, Bali. The first picture is when I had just obtained her. Her age is approximated at 6 months old. The following picture is her just two months later after feeding her my In Depth African Clawed Frog Diet. The intensity of her pattern and golden areas are a huge change from her first picture! These pictures are worth a thousands words when it comes to this special formulated diet.
