Question African Dwarf Frogs?

I wanted to get an African Dwarf Frog for my tank. My question is can as single frog do well or is it recommended to buy 2 or more?

This is just my opinion here. ADFs require different care than a betta does. Betta do not NEED tank mates. My ADF has been chased around by both my sorority and individual males and hides for his life most of the time. Im sure others have had better experiences than me. If I was to do over I would have a tank with JUST ADFs so they could be in a safer, more specific environment. I am my bettas pet so they don't need more friends.

Or a bigger tank if you keep the two together.

I personally think they do better im groups. But my case is the exact opposite of logisticguy! My adfs will sometimes bite my bettas fins! And man do they not let go! My poor blitz tail has been ripped right down the middle from them. Do u wanna see a scared betta darting around the tank with an adf clamped on his fin? Its not as cute or funny as you think! Lol
