Would a betta be compatible with an african dwarf frog?

Would a betta be compatible with an african dwarf frog?
I was thinking to get an african dwarf frog for my betta tank. Do you think this is a good Idea?

Fish are the best animals!!

it might be ok but ive actually seen a group of african dwarf frogs attack and kill a betta that was in their tank. i doubt a lone specimen will do that though

You cannot kill what you did not create

I have two ADFs in my tank and when I first introduced them, the Betta took a curious nip of the leg, and hasn't bothered them since. They seem to be okay, and most sources will say it's okay to house them together. I can tell you that they do fine together but I suppose it varies depending on the temperament of the particular Betta. :D

good luck.

Tanks: 40 gal FW setup, 10 gal Reef tank.

most bettas will flare up and even nip anything new introduced to the tank just to show that he is dominate but usually that only lasts a few minutes. ADF's do great with bettas but ADF's will nip at other fish on occassion, so make sure it is a tank large enough so the betta is not constantly in contact with the frog. The nice thing is that the ADF diet is very similar to the betta's and so a betta pellet food will work well for the frog as will bloodworms...just make sure the food gets down to the little guy.
