ADF makes a lot more sense...they are known for making noise, whereas I've never heard of a betta making noises before...

And comparing it to other ADF noises on youtube, they seem similar.

It's 100% the frog NOT the fish, my cousins ADF do this ALL THE TIME because he has girls and boys in a tank. I believe that is the mating song males sing to females. It's normally very rare to catch it so you got lucky getting it but no this is 100% NOT the fish. I know this sound all too well, they kept me up at night when I was watching them and I also youtubed it. The frog all the way, it's the EXACT same sound. Take a look for yourself.

Firedrake and Genie made noises when I had them.
They mostly did it when I was about to feed them. It was a small clicking noise.
But yeah male dwarf frogs do make calls.
I always thought it was just because they were closing their mouths too hard though. I didn't know they intentionally made noise. I always though fish communicated via dancing or something (yeah I know that sounds really stupid but that's what I honestly thought)

All I know is that angel fish make a Brrrrr noise and some of the synodontis genus make squeaking sounds (hence the term squeaker).

That one is a little bit scary and unusual... I sleep by my bettas tank for around a month and I haven't heard anything though... If its the betta and not the frog, then he must be high in their hierarchy and the plan for world domination is underway...

Ths frog is in love with the betta.

Ah the pain of unrequited desire. Cupid's arrows cut deep.
