Do not confuse the ADF with the ACF or African Clawed Frog. The ADF is peaceful and small, the ACF is mean and can grow to 10". The ADF is very cute, not very exciting unless you catch him in a rather active spurt. They will shed their skin and will often make you think they are dead by their rather lifeless posing in the tank.
