Hey

Hi, my name's Ross. I like sports and athletic stuff. I have a blue betta in a five gallon tank with a heater, filter, castle, shark, log, and a plant. He loves to play with the heater and try to swim around it. I also have two african dwarf frogs in a one gallon tank. Just thought I'd join for the heck of it.

Hi, and Welcome to the Forum!!! ;)
You like the Pacers? I like the Thunder... Harden's Beard... Westbrook keeps falling down... Durant's 3 Pointers... OKC!!! :DDD
Anyways, welcome. Yeah. :)
Oh, and I would upgrade your Frogs' Tank. Kinda Crowded IMO.

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

Yeah, Harden's beard is the best lol. Yeah I guess it is, but it was one of those ones that come with two of them in a kit, like half a gallon maybe?

Hi, here's a (bad) picture of my new tank with the betta messing with the heater like he likes to do :) There's also a frog ornament that is hidden behind the plant.

You could get one of those "Kritter Keepers". They are Cheap, Sturdy, and the Large or X-Large hold alot of Water Volume. There is a Thread somewhere in a Different Section that shows the proper care for African Dwarfs. You do know that they could also be a Tank Mate for your Betta, right? But be careful of your Betta's aggressiveness. They sometimes get feisty. ;)

I am probably just going to leave the frogs in the one gallon tank, the water looks a little cloudy though, might change it soon. I am going to put a few ghost shrimp in the tank with the betta. Haha, the betta likes hiding behind the filter now

Ghost Shrimp? My Betta ended up eating most. :( Now he's a bit chubby but not Bloated. Just be careful with them. Provide some extra cover for them too. It would increase their chance of Survival. They also eat the Uneaten Foods.
Pretty handy...
