Hi, yes I do /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

I have kept several species and bred most of them. I currently have X. laevis, X . meulleri and Silurana tropicalis and S. epitropicalis. In the past I have also kept and bred fraseri, boumbaensis, borealis and a few of the Hymenochirus species too...

Actually an article I did for TFH was ripped off by a Vietnamese website and has my pics online too. TFH are currently trying to get it taken down so the link might not be live for long but here it is anyway (hope you can read vietnamese or have a translator program? LOL)

Wow some list Colin. Google translated 'clawed frog' from Vietnamese as 'frog disease'. /laugh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="Laugh" border="0" alt="laugh.gif" />

Cake or death?

Probably a Hymenochirus sp. Karlos. Have a wee Google see if they look similar to what you have. If so yeah they stay small. /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

you're right matt...had them with my endlers, better move them to my fry tank, cause if i put in bloodworms or anything else, they won't even get a taste of it  /laugh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="Laugh" border="0" alt="laugh.gif" />

damn I hate pressies when i didn't do research...do you think they'd eat small fish?
