    Smile is my african dwarf frog pregnant?

    I have three African dwarf frogs in a 55 gal fish tank with about 25 community fish. 2 of the frogs have really big bellies, and the other one is still thin, are these two frogs pregnant? What should I do to keep the babies alive? I have separated the two (possible lady) fat frogs into there own tank with just a few guppies. How do these frogs breed? Are they live bearers or egg layers? Thanks

    Frogs lay eggs.

    I would worry that your frogs have bloat/dropsy. How fat are they?
