I have two snails that were in my 26 gallon tank with some red wag platys.  The platys were picking at them all the time.  I moved them to a 10 gallon tank with my African Claw Frog.  I haven't noticed that the frog is bothering them yet.  Can the snails and frog co-exist peacefully?  Also, can the snails be in a tank with sand instead of gravel?
Thanks for the help.

I don't think I've ever heard of a frog bothering a snail. They should be fine together happy  Keep an eye on your water perameters. Snails can be messy and a 10g doesn't give you a lot of water.

Sand is great for snails. I used to find mine half buried in it Smiley

OOOPS...I just reread your post and it's a Clawed Frog??????? They will eat anything they can stuff into their mouths. Not sure if that includes snails? Also, be aware, a Clawed Frog will be WAY too big for a 10g.......WAY too big  lazyboy
