American Dwarf Frogs

I am curious in maybe getting one of these little guys. Any information would be appreciated.

I have a 1 gallon tank and let me know what else I need: especially the food, plantings, and filter/heater stuff.

Thank you!

I have two of those guys in my 10 gal. I wouldn't keep them in a 1 gal. As for heater and filter, they're doing fine with the settings you'd normally do for a betta. I feed them bloodworms with a turkey baster because their eyesight is really poor so you have to place the food right in front of them.

If I were you I'd upgrade to a 2.5 gal for one frog and a 5 gal for two.

American Dwarf Frogs? Never heard of those. African maybe?

Yeah...they are African, not American. :) I think that the resident ADF guru advises a 5 gallon minimum - there is a fairly popular thread on them here: Guide to proper ADF care.
