Can ADFs cross-contaminate?

For instance, an ADF with ich... could it then spread to my Betta?

Thanks!

I don't think ADFs can get Ich

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

I honestly know nothing about them. I'm trying to research right now, but not all of my questions can be found on google. Anyway, can they spread ANY disease?

No, what you're asking about is zoonotic disease between fish and amphibians, none that I can think of. The biggest thing with ADF's is chytrid fungus, which fish can't get.
