African dwarf frog?

I'm curious about these little things. I have been hearing a lot about them. Could i put one with my female betta in her 2.5 gal tank? How much are they?

Ya, I'd say you'd need a 5 gallon tank or more for and ADF and a betta. My ADF lives in a 5 gallon with a DP. My bettas have always gotten along great with frogs. It can be kind of tough to get food down to the frogs sometimes, when the bettas snatch up anything they see. ADFs make great pets though. My frog, Darwin, has learned to recognize me and always comes to the glass when he sees me sitting near the tank. He's also learned to follow my finger along the glass to be led to food, which he doesn't always notice right away - ADFs have poor eyesight. I would definatly reccomend them if you ever upgrade to a larger tank.

A DP is a Dwarf Puffer. He's also very friendly, and will keep a really close eye on me when he's hungry. Dwarf puffers don't get along with other fish, but he's done great with my frog.
