Then I suggest only feeding what they will eat over night, drop the food in just before lights out, maybe two-three pellets a piece, and in the morning see what happened. You just may need to feed them only at night.

First off, I want to say, gizmo, I am so sorry for my rudeness to you. I got too defensive. I trying the best I can. I moved everyone out of the 2.5 gallong but Frogger and he is much happier. But I recently bought a 3 gallon for jaws that is heated but not filtered. Should I leave Frogger in the heated/filtered 2.5 or move him to the 3?
Next time I'm getting paid I want to get a suitable tank to hold two ADFS. Heated and filtered of course.

How large of a tank would be ideal to have if you were to keep 2 ADFS together with no other tank mates?
What are the essentials you need for an ADF tank?
Does he look healthy?

Hello, it's alright, don't worry. I don't hold grudges agaianst anyone.

For two frogs with nothing else you could do five gallons, or a 6.6 gallon bookshelf tank from petco, those are great. I like to say 1 frog-3 gallons, 2 frogs- 5 gallons, 3/4 frogs- 10 gallons and so on.

It I hard to tell how healthy he is from that picture honestly, but as long as he is eating and swimming normally he should be fine. :)

Okay thanks so much.
Right now he's Unfortunately in a 2.5 gallon by himself
He's not much of a swimmer but he's active.
I have never seen him eat :/ I do drop the food right on him too
I'm assuming he is because I've had him like 2-3 weeks.
He's happier since I took the fish out.
What is the essentials you need for their tank?
And how often do you feed?

Here is a great example of a frog tank. This is my eight gallon (this is a year old picture, it doesnt look anything like this anymore, but its still a good picture) and i had two frogs living in here, Jackie and Casper, as well as a betta. The substrate is a fine sand, and there is a lot of cover from the betta, but they could also come up and sit in the fake grass plant when they wanted to. The decor is really up to you, but they much prefer sand as a substrate, and plants at all levels of the water.




Have you tried offering bloodworms? Since he is by himself it should be much easier to judge if he is eating of not. I feed mine pellets every other day, and bloodworms (frozen thawed, NOT freeze dried, those will kill your frogs) twice a week.

My current tank setup is as follows: 1 betta, 2 ADFs, 3 albino and 3 green cories, and 5 kuhli loaches. I do water changes every third day of anywhere from 30% to 60%, and spot clean every day. need to get a picture of the tank.... lmao!

Should I move Frogger to the unfiltered, heated, three gallon?

That picture is so sad... Some people can be so cruel...

As for your other questions:
Floating plants: I have used frogbit ad duckweed in the past, but other than that dont know of anything else, try PMing OldFishLady, she knows much more about plants than i do.

food: I just get the hikari frozen bloodworms and frog and tadpole pellets, the frozen brine shrimp they sell has very little nutritional value to ADFs, so just stick with the simple stuff.

Tank: You could leave him where he is now or move him, i would leave him be, just bacause of the issue of stress from moving again.
