The inch per gallon rule is bogus. I wouldn't shove a 5 inch goldfish in a 5 gallon tank.

Think of the bioload. Frogs are actually good by themselves in a 5 gallon... Should be with 1 or more frogs... And in that small of space may feel threatened and will not go up for air... And will go for your betta's fins.
The bioload, depends on the critter. Apple snail (had one) produces more waste than a mystery snail. A goldfish more than a betta.

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

Yes neons are but they need groups of 4-6 minimum and lots of room to roam (usually a 20 is recommended for their energetic ways). I've had 4 danios and Spartan in my 10 no problems... But Spartan's my anything-goes fish. I've found danios don't chew up a betta like some tetras, or like barbs.

Thats too small. 10 gallon minium for Bettas + other fish. Its eight. Maybe you could do one ADF but that would be it.

Bettas:
Females: Morgana (CT), Gwendolyn (CT), Amethyst (CT), Hebe (CT), Iris (HMPK), Amphitrite (HMPK), Artemis (HMPK) Dottie (?), Lulubell (CT), Mirabell (CT) & Jubilee (HMPK)
Males: Cronus (CT), Tian (OHM) & Anubis (OHM)

Dogs:
Zeeva (Siberian Husky)
Binky (Samoyed)

I would personally try one or two ADFs. Especially if it's an eight gallon. It should work out fine. You just have to be prepared to make a little extra effort so the fish doesn't eat the frog food.

Absolutely no Dainos. Those fin nip and need about 15 gallons, they are active. They also need a school of 6.

Get 2 AFDs. They would thrive in the 8 gallon. For a 5 gallon only one frog, but 2 would be great in 8+ a betta.

*2 Bettas (for now RIP Ryu) *2 Goldfish *9 Guppies *1 Gourami *2 Chinchillas *2 Budgies *2 Dwarf Frogs *1 Dog *1 Cat *2 Hermit Crabs *2 3gs *1 10g *1 Pond *2 2gs

I recommend nothing smaller than a five gallon for a pair of frogs, and a ten gallon for a pair of frogs and a betta. Think of the bioload. And if your fish is very aggressive, think of the poor frogs toes. Be prepared to either rehome the frogs, get another tank for the fish, or divide the tank into a three gallon section for the fish, and a five gallon area for the frogs.
