Two frogs and a betta in a five gallon may be too much because of the small space. But it is not as bad as it could be.

As for frogs eating MTS, I've never seen it, but they eat the leftover food that is in there from the betta. Also, when you say you forget often, is this like you forget for a day or two at a time, or? Because they can go a few days between feeding a and be fine.

I admittedly forget to feed the frog often and the thing still winds up thriving in my tank. The only thing I can think of is that he/she feeds on the small MTS that I have in there to aerate the sand substrate.

Does anyone else have experience in this matter?
frogs naturally eat small fish and inverts in the wild, I wouldn't be surprised if your froggy is snacking on your baby MTS when you're not looking

I would be surprised. There is a ton of thick hard shell and not much meat for them. I wouldn't be surprised if they are pond snails, but MTS...yeah I'd be shocked.

Not too tall, just make sure you have resting spots at several levels, like plants and decor, so they can take a break from swimming if they have to.
