ADF do not actually need others if their own kind. They will eat when by themselves, they are just more active with others. They play and stuff.

Okay thank you- So I have a .5 G, would that be better to keep him in? Yes, he is getting 2ce a week water changes like my Bettas and the big tank and daily water tests. I will get some Froend Bloodworms, but I only have PetSmart, any idea is Petsmart has 'em?

I get my bloodworms from petsmart. They should carry them where you are, by the fish area there should be a freezer.

I would put him in the qt and float him in warner water until you can get him healthy and get a proper heater for his tank. They like the same temperature range as bettas.

Update- He is doing much better. Eating, playing, chirping, and he likes to rub against my hand and nip at me? Its super cute. He has already clearly put on weight so now he isn't just skin and bones. In addition, he is barely spending any time in his cave like he used to, now he likes to be out and about and bathe in the warmth of my desk lamp.

Glad to hear your frog is doing better. :)

But please try not to touch his skin - frog skin is super absorbent and so whatever's on your skin (sweat, bacteria, soap residue, chemicals) will transfer to the frog and be absorbed into his system. When I kept native frogs, I was advised to handle them as little as possible, for that reason.

I'm not sure how you got on this thread. I like the substrate, but you need a nice piece of driftwood (buy a small to medium size malaysian wood) a bit off center. I think your Hillstream loach would prefer that. Also you need a larger group of neon tetras. Get at least 6. Any kind of visual interest you can provide is nice, whether with driftwood or slate stacked to create hiding places, is nice and visually attractive. Otherwise, good job.
