They like it better low, but they should be alright with a "high" water level so long as there's not a really strong current. I just got two ADFs for my split 15 gallon. You can also check out the Guide to Proper ADF Care ([IMG]here[/IMG])

So long as there's a little for air above the water, it should be ok, especially if the tank is small. Like I said, I've got a 15 gallon and my ADFs are fine so far.

as long as the tank's not deep enough that they can't reach the top in more than a "bound" or two they'll be fine. if you have an airstone in it you'll notice they like to ride the bubbles to the surface and then parachute back down.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

They banned ADF at my petsmart -_- it's because the shipment caught a disease... The last time I saw a ADF at my petsmart was 3 days ago... and I went today to buy conditioner and they weren't there, so I asked the manager that left her office and asked her and she said that they sent them back... And that they won't be selling ADF for a few months.... That's my story!!!

Tail fins and dorsal fins,Spread, expand, as well as sail,When flying in full mass,They captivate like nightingales,Attempting to breed baby fry,Their actions may surprise,For how betta fish procreate,Differs from routine rise...

It was probably the chytrid fungus. I heard Petsmart won't sell any frogs that have it, and if the whole shipment caught it, then its no wonder they would send it back. I don't know if Petco does the same thing. The person I talked to had no idea what the fungus was, and I know she knows her stuff
