Please tell me how your frogs are doing? Where did you purchase them? I am thinking about adding a frog to my 10 gallon tank for my male betta. Maybe I can add two? Do they need to be a certain size so the betta will not go after them? I would hate to see them hurt.
I would like to know what different kind of frogs are available that will work with a male betta.
My betta buddy does not seem aggressive, but how do I really know until I add another 'something' to the tank. He follows my finger around and comes up to touch it. He does like to chomp on my finger nail, which I think is funny.
I hope your fish are well. What are you feeding them?

You can have two African Dwarf Frogs in a 10g with one betta I believe. I feed my adf thawed frozen bloodworms, he eats them up fast! Also do not get african clawed frogs. I purchased my adf from petsmart. :3

Tetras and cories both are schooling fish. 3-4 minimum.

You could easily do a school of 3-4 cories or tetras. I love my cories. Pygmies are the way to go in a 10, you could easily have 5-6 of those. but you could do regular sized too.

10 HM, 3 HMPK, 5 HMPK fry
8 German Blue Ram, 5 Green Dragon BNP, 4 Albino BNP, 4 Calico BNP, 6 Red BNP, 5 Kuhli Loaches, 2 ADF, 7 Peppered Cories, & 6 Tiger Endlers + Fry
12 full time tanks, 4 NPT, 6 QT/Breeders

My frogs are doing just fine. My male kinda looks at them like "WTF are you?" lol I purchased them at Petsmart and I added 2 to a 10 gallon tank. The betta has no problems with them. He doesn't attack them or anything. I have noticed that my females will come to the front of the tank when I say "hey my girls" lol I love it. They know who I am, I think. 10 gallon is the smallest you can go with them unless you plan on putting them in the tank by themselves. I am thinking of buy 2 more frogs to put in the tank with my females which is another 10 gallon tank with 3 female bettas. I am attempting to feed them Top Fin frogs, newts, and tadpoles bits but I got suggested to feed them something else which I gotta buy first.

America (f, HM), Spirit (m, DBLT), Rescue (f, VT), Missile (m, HM), Purnurple (m, HMPK), Dragon (m, VT), platies, mollies, sorority tank of 21 females, AND lots of guppies.
