A sorority for the 20g...thats what I'd do. Maybe split one 10 gallon into 3 or 4 compartments and use the other for docile male with some tankmates.

I removed the frog and shrimp from the 20 gallon one (betta was getting nasty and harassing them and not letting anyone eat) and he will go back to the 10 gallon one. Is 7 neon tetras, 1 adf, and 4 shrimp too much for a tall 20 gallon tank?? Can I put in more neon tetras and shrimp?

I bought 5 more tetras and 4 more shrimp yesterday. When i got home all the terras were dead and the shrimp were picking away at their bodies. The bag only had a a little more than a cup of water in it. Then after I added the shirmp to the tank last night 2 tetras were dead by morning.

Well the shrimp wouldn't have killed them, it was more likely that they were diseased from the store which is oh so common unfortunately and the ghosties could have carried diseases over to your tank. That's why QT periods are suggested but of course will more fish it can be a bit tedious and annoying to wait two weeks and all.

In the 20? they'll be fine as long as you have enough black skirts to make a nice group, I suggest like 10 if that's all your putting in there with the frog. Make sure the frog has some leafy surfaces at the top that it can hang out and breathe at, they too need to breathe air as well.

Perhaps I missed something, how many fish do you have in there right now including the frog and any snails/shrimp?
