No my tank is 10 gal. But with two fish and two snails I really shouldn't add another "big" animal until either one of my snails dies or Fish (my old boy) passes.. which I have a feeling will be sometime this year. The ghost shrimp I'm told have almost no effect on the Bio-load so I should be able to have them. But like I said I need to do more research.

IMO you should always quarantine every animal you add to a tank for at least 2-3days. Make sure it is eating and pooping normally and it has a good activity level.

Okay, that's what I decided. I'm quarantining him for two weeks. :)

I'm really worried about Dorkus, though. He seems to be having a tattered shed, the skin is coming off in pieces, and that can be a sign of chytrid fungus. AUGH

Well, I thought the whole setup with Freed and Dorkus was going to work, but Freedy just took a pretty obvious shot at Dorkus.

Why would he do that just now after three days of being in the same tank?! >:C
He did it once... this is the first I've seen him nip at Dorkus... does this mean I have to separate them? -_-

Hmmm, I'd keep an eye on him for now and see what happens. If he doesn't let up I would go ahead and remove the froggie.

Well, I don't think he's nipped him any more since last nght... Dorkus is shedding, so there would be a hole in his old skin if Freed bit him. I'll keep watching, though.

You can have ADF's and bettas together? The frogs don't bitethe fins of the betta?

Nope. I'm honestly more concerned about the betta nipping at the frog than the frog bothering the betta. :)

ADFs don't like filters, the vibrations bother them, so I wouldn't get one unless the tank's really big or you can find a quiet filter. :)
