You can keep one frog and one betta in five gallons, bigger is always better, but five is minimum.

Thank you! Looking into getting an irregular eight gallon for one of my boys and possibly a companion frog, so it's good to know that would be a good amount of space.

Well I believe for two frogs the minimum should be 5 gallons and I think that applies to a beta and a frog.
But I will strongly recommend you get two separate homes. Sometimes to frogs bite the betas find and sometimes the betta bites the frog.
Also make sure you see your frog eat because sometimes the beta will eat everything and your frog will starve.

I definitely will be sure to monitor, if I do. Thankfully, the betta I would plan to put with a frog is extremely peaceful. He lives in my community tank with three platies and a lyretail balloon molly, and I have never had trouble with him, even with my longfin/nippy fish. And of course, because I would only have the one frog at a time, I would also have a three gallon tank to spare in case anything went wrong and the frog needed his own home. Thank you very much for the advice, guys!

OMG, I have tadpoles!! o.O if I didn't have to leave for about a week, I would try and raise them, but as it is I found them on the day I had to leave... The might still be alive when I get back, but I kind of doubt it. These are the only two I've seen so far.

Awww cute tadpoles! Amazed you got such good shots of them!

Well I impulsively bought a pair of BLONDE dwarf froggies today. ^_^ They are living in the 15 gallon with my new loaches. The only bad thing is they are the EXACT colour as the sand. So they are hard to see. And they are TINY, like Atilla could swallow them small. Now just need some names for the babies!
