I am not talking about any specific aquatic frog. It can be any aquatic frog.
I saw beautiful pics of aquatic frogs on net. Was wondering if they are an option here in India although I have not seen any good ones here. The one that I have seen are albino frogs (in Kurla).

Hey Shankar.....thats a really cool picture of a microhylid ornate frog ....these guys have amazing tadpoles which look like spaceships, the tadpole swim like fish in a lose shoal in the water column and not on the substrate!
nnpnnp, all Indian frogs are protected and collection/keeping/trading is strictly prohibited!
but u can keep the albino African frog, as the are lab raised for research and do well in captive conditions!

Pls be careful with tadpoles , since i had once caught some from a pond and kept it in my tank, following which i developed some bad rashes all over my two hands , they had just swelled up,it could be i am allergic but i just felt like informing u about this.
even though my parents told me to throw off the stuff i didnt, i just stopped touching the water and in a few days the tadpoles became frogs,very tiny ones.it was a g8 experience.
p.s this story dates abck 15 yrs from now when i was in school.

Our Guru and India's foremost aquatic hobbyist, Sri Sri GatorX (also currently lovingly known as the Adarsh society of Fish keepers) should know a thing or two about Frogs. Wherever he goes, girls are constantly trying to kiss him, thinking he'll turn into a Prince.
