Adding dwarf frog to Betta tank... quarantine?

I've been thinking about adding a frog to Mr. Big's tank. Hes very, very passive from what I can tell (doesn't flare at reflection or pictures of other bettas) and I thought a small little frog would give him something to interact with when I'm busy with classes and work.

My question is this : do I need to quarantine the frog for a while before I add him in with my betta? Would another small fish be a better idea?

The petstore I'd probably be getting the dwarf frog is very clean and thier tanks look nice, its a good sized local family owned and run petstore. The tanks always look nice and disease-free.

Thanks! I really wanted to get the froggie later today (its my only day off 'til thursday lol) and I'd like to know if I should set up a quarantine tank or not for the frog.

I might quarantine the frog for a week. It never hurts to be safe!!! How nice that you have a good little pet store near you!

Or maybe its not a good thing... that store seems to have taken all of my paycheck every week! Hahaha

How is it working with the frog? Are both occupants happy?

I have a Betta I bought last week to replace a guppie but he's not happy in the guppie bowl. My son has a 10 gal. tank I could put him in but there is a 5 year old dwarf african frog in there and I would be afraid the Betta might kill him. My son would be devestated since he lost his other two frogs just a couple of months ago. They are/were very old.

I ended up not buying the frog, because they didn't have any at the store. :[ so I answer your question I'm sorry!

I think it depends on the betta how well the two could get along (how aggressive he is).

Thanks for the reply. Aften mentioning it to my son, I think I'll not put it in with the frog. He's afraid the fish will kill his frog. I have to say I'm a little wary too.

or you could split the tank. it takes about 5 bucks to make 1 divider and its very easy.

I agree with doggyhog, quarantine for about a week.
