If its a dwarf frog, it will have eyes on the SIDE of the head, insteead of eyes ontop.

Does the frog have thick back legs, and skinny forearms, are they both skinny? If it has thicker back legs, its a clawed frog.

Dwarf frogs do not eat much dry food. Try flightless fruit flies (www.edsflymeatinc.com), rice flour beetle larva (www.edsflymeatinc.com), frozen shrimp, and other frozen type foods. Make sure to sprinkle some supplement on the fruit flies and let the frogs eat them off the water so they get vitamins a few times a week (good supplement is T-rex Carnivorous formula, NO phosphorus). Supplementing can be trickly, as foods that sink will tend to rub it all offf. But insects on the water surface are a good idea.

If its a xenopus, a ten gallon is WAY too small. They would need a minimum of a 40 gallon, as each individual frog needs plenty of room, but you can have a total of 4 frogs in a tank like that.

Keep the temp below 75 and they will do great, if Xenopus laevis.

Xenopus can often refuse dry food as well when they grow up. Begin switching to a diet of crickets, mealworms, feeder fish, frozen foods, lean raw beef or fish, etc.
