Q: I want to add an African frog to my freshwater fish tank. Anything special I should know? A: About as easy to care for as goldfish, African frogs liven up any aquarium with their quick turns and acrobatic moves. Pet stores typically carry two: the African dwarf and the African clawed. Assuming your aquarium already has fish living in it, avoid the clawed variety, which frequently preys on other creatures and gets big fast.
