I would want one in my 20G... But will it be okay?

There are cories, two guppies, and a betta. (It's terribly understocked.)

It as an AquaClear 30, would it get sucked in? I wouldn't have the guts to take out a dead frog.. >.> Also, is the disease fatal to fish, too?

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

^ better than being overstocked!!

Floated my ADFs in a cup in the sorority.
NOPE, not happening. Girls immediately starting circling them, flaring.
Themis and Theia even started trying to nip at them.
Wow, aggression much ladies?

They'll have to wait until I get the bigger sorority tank. I can't risk putting them
into that outsider-hating sorority xD

But it should be any day now!
To appease them, I fed them bloodworms. Got some pics since they
were so eager and just floating at the top. They literally opened their mouths
out of the water, and i would wave the bloodworm over their mouths, and they'd open. In they went. Too cute.
Sorry for the photo dump xD

A lot of the photos are really bad quality (thanks to not cleaning the water drops on the glass) so I apologize for that

First, the head photos:











Thought this photo was cute:

"Why are you taking pictures of them??? It's always me!"









Found these photos so cute, like she was climbing up to the temple to pray for more bloodworms!! XD





Finally, the end result of the feeding xD

Love the froggies!!! You have some cuties! They ACT like they're used to being hand-fed already :) SO glad you caught the aggression from the girls before putting them in. O.o

I have handfed them before, but it was quite some time ago. I very rarely feed my fish/frogs frozen bloodworms because I once had a betta contract ick from them.

Yeah, Sorry froggies, but they're gonna have to wait just a little bit longer before they can have the 10 gal all to themselves! And a buddy too perhaps! They'll love the plants in there i just know it :D

djem, your frogs will definitely love the sprite.

Ash is actually a fish, and Frog is the frog, but they'll both like it :)
