ADF for Girl in a 5.5gal?
My new VT girl Gylfie is in a 5.5 gallon all by herself right now, and I was thinking about getting her a companion of some kind to interact with without causing any kind of problems. With my boy, I have five Cories, but I know I wouldn't be able to do Cories in a 5.5.
I was thinking about the possibility of an African Dwarf Frog. Do you think that would be okay? I'm not sure of the individual care of ADFs, but I will be doing research. Are ADFs difficult to care for? And are they docile enough to not bother Gylfie? I know there are several people on here who have them with Bettas, I'm just looking for specifics and if they are recommended. If not, I'll probably end up getting a pair of ghost shrimp or something. I've had ghost shrimp before with my male, Ben, though he's so big he just swallowed them all whole and took out all five in a week and a half. But Gylfie is only about half an inch bigger than most ghost shrimp right now so I don't think it would be too bad. Though I am really interested in trying out an ADF.
What do you guys suggest? and any information from anyone with experience with ADF's is appreciated.
