I've had him for a week but he won't go anywhere near my 3 frogs, who just ignore him completely. I'm going to add more silk plants for him to hide in. My frogs took over the new tall plants meant for Tyrannith :(

I hope my paranoid questions won't bother you all =]
I'm a Reddit addict myself.

I have never had any frogs...they sound pretty cool though, and yeah, more places to hide might make him feel more confident!

They're so fantastic! They try nibbling at my fingers if I put them in the tank, they make the funniest faces and fall over! I can hold them just at the waterline without them being scared :) they're just so silly. If you have room, I say you should definitely get one! They need to be hand fed but other than that, I love them so much.

Just wanted to make sure your fish is healthy. Glad you are taking care of him. Advice is the best welcome you sound like you have been keeping Bettas for a while. Welcome to the forum. I was reffering to your brother rare for one person to take care of a Betta well but two brother.

I've only had a betta for a week but I've had my frogs for months :) I've been doing a lot of research, I want to give my betta the best life possible. That makes sense about my brother :) I'm helping him take care of it.
