ADF's

Yes,yes i know this is betta forum. But i wanna ask here anyways! I know some of you have froggies... I had ADF's many many years ago before I really knew anything about taking care of fish. So they obviously didnt live very long. So I was reading up on them,and seems a debate on tank size. Several sites say 1 gallon per frog is fine,others say 2.5 per frog. Which is right? I think I will wait till I get back to get any other aquatic creature,but I really want froggies again. They would be in a tank to themselves. Either a 2.5 (if thats sufficient) or a 4.5 if its not. Probably cant live with cories,cause they are both bottom dwellers??

They have ADFs at Petco for $2.50 each.
I saw the food for them on the reptile isle at my Petsmart for $2 something.

Hehe yes!! I was watching those two at petsmart. Goofy lil things. Didnt dawn on me to look in the reptile section...heh...my mind was on fishys I guess...but they had crab food in the fish aisle...so I dunno frog food could be there too.
I had them oh,like 10 years ago I think. maybe before that. Way back when I knew nothing about proper care of fish or frogs,so they sold two to me in a small square tank. Maybe 1/2 gallon. So I will do much much better this time around! Make up for killing them I guess lol. Im gonna check out my lfs tomorrow,I know they have froggies there. Hope they have some dwarfs in.
What should I look for in a healthy frog? From watching the ones at petsmart,I see they rest in odd positions lol. Should I look for one thats swimming around or just hanging out...I have no clue. I wouldve gotten just the one...cause he was probably the 3 dollar one...but is two better than one??
Must do more research!!
