Problem with frogs and bettas is that most times the frogs cant get their food. The betta will steal it. So gotta make sure they are getting their food. And yes cycle!

3 gallon male betta
10 gallon male betta
12 gallon QT
30 gallon
1 Pl*co, Brochis Splenden,False Julii Cory,Pygmy Corys,Female Betta,Harlequin Rasbora,Tetras
55 gallon Possible Barb tank?!

sinking shrimp pellets should work if you get a frog, but they do best in groups of 2.

I saw some adf's today at Petsmart. They're tiny and cute! But I'm not much for frogs either.

This m ight sound a bit preachy, but why keep a fish in an environment that really isn't optimal for it? I just don't quite get it. Just putting a fish in a small tank doesnt always ensure it will not grow, and it really isn't that healthy for the fish...

This is not true. A pleco may not reach full size (20") in a smaller tank, but they will always end up over 10" regardless of how small of a tank you stick them in. Well, that or dead. Your choice. A pleco's growth may be stunted by a small and inadequate tank, but not dwarfed to a point where it can just indefiantely survive in such a tiny tank because 'oops, id's getting awfully tight in here, maybe I should just stop growing.' Doesn't work that way. Its like telling a human baby that it can no longer get any bigger because you don't want to ever let it out of its crib to give it any more room. It's just not going to happen. It's already too big for a 1 gallon, and it's still not going to stop growing because of it.
