I know this thread isn't really active anymore, but I was wondering if I could possibly get anyone's opinion of having 2 ADFs and a betta in a 5.5 gallon tank? Is this completely undoable and over stocked? I am in college, so I can try to get a 10 gallon if it can fit. But Also if i were to do a 10 gallon, could I do more than 2 frogs with a Betta? thanks!

On one of the first few pages, she(?) answers this question- she said 2 frogs and a betta in a 5.5 gal is getting close to/at the max for bioload, but as long as you're diligent with water quality, it shouldn't be a problem (if everyone gets along).

I think if you did a 10 gallon you could do a betta with 3-4 frogs, but I have no experience with that, so that's just my opinion.

I kept 4 ADF with my betta but it was in a well planted 20 gallon. I wouldn't do anything less than 10g for 2 frogs and a betta.

I currently have 2 frogs and a betta in a fluval spec 5 (5.5 gallons) and am adding a third frog after his (3 month) quarantine is over in 2 weeks. As is though the tank is cycled and has about 10-20 nitrates a week though I do large water changes every week regardless. It is moderately planted with crypts, anubis, moss balls, and a just got a few large java fern.

i have 3 adf and a betta in a 10 but i've also got a filter rated for a 20g... but russeltheshihtzu on here has 6 adf and a betta in a 10g as well.

aqua advisor says you can have 1 male betta and 4 adf in a 5.5 with only having to change 27% of water a week, and using a topfin 10 filter. http://aqadvisor.com/AqAdvisor.php?A...rchMode=simple

Three in a 5 or 5.5 would be my maximum. Six is the maximum in a 10 gallon. I wouldn't keep ADF in anything less than a 5; but that's because I wouldn't keep fewer than three. The bioload of an ADF is about that of a larger Tetra but not that of a Betta.

It's a lot easier if you start your own thread; that way more people will see it and if issues come up you have a history of sorts for us to go back over.

Welcome to the Forum, Jason!
