So I've done a wee (not very much) research on ADF's and they seem quite interesting, and wouldn't mind keeping a pair. SO! I was wondering if five gallons would be enough for Two (or MAYBE one) froggies, and my male Tug? I also have a 7.9 gallon with my male Strausse in it, which is also a possibility. Although, as of now, the tank is lacking a lid :( BUT I should be making a new one (accidently stepped on the last one xD) soon!
I've got two tanks (listed above) do either sound suitable for an ADF or two? I've read a BIT (like I said not much) about them having to be kept in pairs? I do have a ten, and a five gallon I could use for quarantining the frogs prior to putting them in either of the tanks. I CANNOT set up another tank permantly because I just don't have the enough time, space, and money to be giving the best care I can for a whole new ecosystem like that.
I must add in that Strausse, my betta who lives in my 7.9 gallon is on the more aggressive side, BUT I don't know how he'd handle a whole new tank mate, I mean, with it being a frog, and it being about the same size as him I don't think he'll be TOO upset. The 7.9 gallon DOES have a SMALLER base than my 5 gallon, and this tank is taller, rather being wider; hence why it's got a smaller base.
My five gallon with Tug SEEMS suitable for Tug to have a POSSIBLE tank mate, I mean he is really laid back compared to Strausse and I've never been able to get him to flare, no matter how hard I try!
If by chance these frogs woundn't get along with which ever betta they might end up with I could probably set up one of the other tanks as a last ditch effort. I say this because I wouldn't want them to suffer because of my poor judgement, etc.
I don't have the money (well, I do, but I'm saving) to make a SUPER fancy home for just the AFD SO I'd really love to have some, but I'd like to keep them in with one of my other bettas to keep every thing easy/easier! I am only a teenager, so I don't have a REAL job yet. :p
THANK YOU! (in advance) for your help! :D I do not want to go into anything unprepared, because I'd really hate to have these little guys, thinking I'm doing the right think when really I'm harming them!
