Would 2 ADFs work with a Betta in a 10 gallon? Sorry never trying to come off as a know it all.

Glad to hear it! It can be difficult through the medium of pure text to understand the intended emotion behind a post. Are you looking into getting ADF? They're really very sweet and wonderful wetpets. I love mine. . .

Yeah... a LOT of people keep them together with no problems, but it really seems to depend on the personality of the fish - some seem to care more than others about frogs in their tank. If you do decide to try, I'd keep a very close eye on things for the first month or two, and have a back-up tank ready to move either the fish or the frog into permanently, if any problems arise. Feeding can also be troublesome in a tank with fish and frogs. ADF don't see very well, and tend to take a while to find and eat their food, while betta eat quickly, so you may run into problems with over-feeding your betta and under-feeding your frog. There are ways around this - you just have to be wary of the possibility of a problem. My betta and my frog(s) have always been in different tanks, but Speckles WAS in a community tank with other types of fish at one point, and for me it was easier to move her into her own tank. Gizmo and many others are able to rock a frog/fish tank with ease, though!

Just saw the post before, sorry. Yes - the SPACE in a 10gallon is okay for 2 frogs and a betta, but . . . yeah, if your betta is notoriously aggressive, then I wouldn't try it - you could put in a tank divider and have the frogs on one side and the betta on the other. . . or TRY it, and use the divider if/when a problem occurs.

I would say try it, and keep an eye on them. Even my mot aggressive bettas have been successful with ADF. There was an incident where Bonnie got a toe bitten off, but she healed fast and is fine now. She even lives with Angel fish currently and I haven't seen any problems.

What you have to watch mostly is things like feeding and getting stuck, as they breathe air at the surface like bettas, they can drown.
