Thank you. I went ahead and took the frog out and put him in another large bowl. It will be much easier for me to make sure they are both getting the kind of care they need. I have some frozen bloodworms and daphnia I bought for treats and will introduce them to the frog (Molly). Leo, the betta will probably like my decision, although he is fearless. He already let me touch him and he ate off the wand I introduced to him (I hope to train him).

Good luck with your frog! That's really cool, I don't think my betta will ever let me touch him. He can jump pretty high for food though :D

Actually,Demysta, You will not need a bigger tank! From experience, I found that African dwarf frogs are born to live in half gallon tanks! No need to buy a new tank, your aquatic friends will be fine!

This post is nearly two years old.

I'm sorry, but you are dangerously incorrect in your statement that ADF are "born to live in half gallon tanks." The recommended tank size is 1-2 gallons per frog for long-term health. A half-gallon would never provide them what they need in terms of cover, plants and swim area.
