I am moving my female from her 1.5 gallon to a 10 gallon lightly planted tank. I want to get a frog, so I was thinking of getting an ADF to live with her. I know frogs are bad eaters, but since the frog pellets are too big for my female's tiny mouth, I think the frog would be able to sift them up without a problem. So, here are my questions:
1) Can ADFs live on small gravel? I don't want the frog to ingest it while sifting for food and die. Should I do a bare bottom tank instead?
2) Is there a risk of Chystrid fungus? I know one member on here had an ADF with chystrid fungus and said it was common on frogs from local pet stores. I was thinking of getting one from Petsmart or Petco, but is there a risk they could be infected?
3) Should I get a snail to help clean up the frog's uneaten food? I know frogs are messy so I was thinking about getting a mystery snail to help clean up. Would this overload they biofilter or cause the frog to starve?
I don't know much about ADFs so these are the basic questions that came up when I considered getting one. Please add anything else that is important to know about them. I have kept an aquatic frog before, but it wasn't an ADF.
