So I just got two of these little guys today and just finished setting up their 5.5 gallon QT tank. Once I know they are healthy, I'll move into the 10 gallon with Paarthurnax.

I added water conditioner, a heater, a small filter, and lots of floating silk plants and a log. Is it okay to add them?

Question: I did a water change because my nitrate was a little high
And I thought I was done so I used my hand sanitizer but just a tiny bit, and it was dry. But I couldn't find Frogger so I reached in to list his hide(I found him)
Do I need to do an emergency water change because of the sanitizer?

EEEK! I would change the water just to be safe - I honestly have no idea, but I'm really careful to always wash my hands before touching my tank water. . .

And half-gallon tanks shouldn't even exist. Poor little guys. . .

HEY! You got your test kit! Good job!

When it comes time to put the ADF's and Paarth (betta) together, I just have a question about feeding.

The froggies' food won't be deadly to Paarth if he ends up eating some, will it? Does it sink? I just hope the frogs get their food and Paarth doesn't eat it all/

It won't be toxic to your Betta at all
But you have to WATCH your frog eat because I had this issue and my frog was starving and my Betta was fat

I would cup your Betta and float him at the top I the cup while you feed your frog
I would feed him frozen-thawed bloodworms( I feed in a cup so he can get it and doesn't hurt his nose)
I've found my frog won't eat the pellets or any sort of pellet.

I did but only a cheap one for now :( the one you suggested and I want is 33.00$ so I have to wait. My Bettas tanks were excellent but froggers nitrate and nitrite were high :(( I used all the strips already grrrrr. I didn't change his water(after using santitizer, he got a 50% change today before the hand sanitizer accident because of the nitrates/nitrites) because I was late for an appOintment and he seems ok :((( I feel awful.
