Exclamation ADF's in large community tank?

Would 3 ADF's be okay in a 50 gal with...

2 angels
3 gouramis
4 female bettas
10 neons
3 cories
1 rainbow shark
6 platies

I have them in a 10 gal divided with 2 male bettas, but the bettas keep eating their pellets and are getting really fat. What do you guys think?
Sorry if this is posted in the wrong area. Thanks.

I hear they have a real high bio load and also that bigger more aggressive fish tend to bully them, even tearing off their limbs. I've read some people feed the frogs with turkey basters and put the food right infront of them, maybe you could try this? if it doesn't work then maybe fasting the frogs the same days you fast the bettas might help.

Okay thanks, the frogs are foragers though so take their time to eat, I don't think the turkey baster would help here. But the fasting should help some, thank you!
