Yea I know they sick but since I have a betta and they're new I wanted to try to place the pellets right next to them if I just drop thm the betta will eat them

They can survive but it isn't the best for them, they need the variety. If you didn't want to feed them properly, why get them?

Cup the betta during feedings, and drop the pellets by where the frogs are, they will eat them.

Water changes are the same with them as it is with bettas, just be careful with the gravel vac so that you don't suck them up.

I'm glad you switched from the pellets. It really it better that way. My frog wouldn't eat pellets period. His favorite were the frozen bloodworms too. Just remember to thaw them first

I'm keeping them in a little cooler with ice and ice packs since my mom won't let me put them in the fridge so basically there already almost thaw out is that okay or do they have to be completly frozen

They will go bad if they aren't kept frozen until you need them, think of them like meat. You can keep meat for a couple days in the fridge if its raw, but it keeps much longer if its frozen.

If kept with a betta, how large should the tank be? Just one frog, one betta, for the moment.
