African Dwarf Frogs?

Hello everyone!

I was recently thinking of getting a African dwarf frog. I don't have alot of space left in my Community Tank (tank with neon tetras, sucker fish, etc.) and was wondering if I could possibly pair Chip and a African dwarf frog together.

The one time I kept a ADF with a betta he got bullied but it was just him and the betta in a 6 gallon. I have two now in my 55 gallon community tank with tetras, barbs, platys, cories and gouramis and everyone gets along. You do have to feed them blood worms though and making sure they get enough can be hard with a whole community but mine are fat and happy.

I've never fed them bloodworms. They eat NLS pellets like everything else.

I've not had any issues keeping ADFs with bettas.

Mine are picky little brats lol I switch off flakes, pellets and blooworms and I've never seen them go for anything but the worms.

I just got an ADF for my 5 gal betta tank. They are doing great! I just posted about them before finding your thread: http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=295202
The frog does sometimes mistake the betta's tail for food, but the betta doesn't retaliate. I've read that it has a lot to do with the individual betta. I'd keep an eye on them for a bit so you can scoop the frog if there are issues.
