Please tell me how your frogs are doing? Where did you purchase them? I am thinking about adding a frog to my 10 gallon tank for my male betta. Maybe I can add two? Do they need to be a certain size so the betta will not go after them? I would hate to see them hurt.
I would like to know what different kind of frogs are available that will work with a male betta.
My betta buddy does not seem aggressive, but how do I really know until I add another 'something' to the tank. He follows my finger around and comes up to touch it. He does like to chomp on my finger nail, which I think is funny.
I hope your fish are well. What are you feeding them?

You can have two African Dwarf Frogs in a 10g with one betta I believe. I feed my adf thawed frozen bloodworms, he eats them up fast! Also do not get african clawed frogs. I purchased my adf from petsmart. :3

Tetras and cories both are schooling fish. 3-4 minimum.

You could easily do a school of 3-4 cories or tetras. I love my cories. Pygmies are the way to go in a 10, you could easily have 5-6 of those. but you could do regular sized too.

My frogs are doing just fine. My male kinda looks at them like "WTF are you?" lol I purchased them at Petsmart and I added 2 to a 10 gallon tank. The betta has no problems with them. He doesn't attack them or anything. I have noticed that my females will come to the front of the tank when I say "hey my girls" lol I love it. They know who I am, I think. 10 gallon is the smallest you can go with them unless you plan on putting them in the tank by themselves. I am thinking of buy 2 more frogs to put in the tank with my females which is another 10 gallon tank with 3 female bettas. I am attempting to feed them Top Fin frogs, newts, and tadpoles bits but I got suggested to feed them something else which I gotta buy first.
