Sorry, your tank is too small. :l Only shrimp and snails for you. If your tank is below 10 gallons, you can't have fish mates. Only the shrimps and snails.

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

Yeah, but their tanks are overstocked. ADFs need 3 gallons per frog so...

Yep. But I heard they have a big bioload so that might be too small. They also need shrimp pellets or some type of food.
