    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I've got a male betta and I just got a ten gallon tank for Christmas so I'm gonna transfer him into the larger tank so he'll be happy. But I want a few other critters because he seems lonely a lot of the time and because I feel like it. I know I want to add an African dwarf frog because I heard...

  4. Betta Testing

    Welcome to my aquarium journal. I thought this might be a good way to keep track of the trials and tribulations and of course, the joys of my latest fish-keeping endeavor. My aquarium is really not mine, it is a pet that my 6 year old son earned for consistent good behavior. My 8 year old is...

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I have currently have a male betta in a 2.5 gallon tank with live dwarf cardinal plants. The filter I have is a Tetra Whisper 3i because it is the only filter that I can find that doesn't produce much current (20 GPH). I was wanting to get a scavenger for the tank to eat algae and any food...

  10. Tree Frogs anyone?

    Finless Friends
    A couple years ago I had 2 white's tree frogs named Ribbit & Gismo! They were very entertaining and with such personalities too. Ribbit was most aggressive, kind of the dominant one since they were both male. My mom & I would get in the middle of a conversation and all of a sudden they'd start...

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    My betta male lives in a filtered, heated ten gallon tank. I would really like to get a tank mate for my betta. I am deciding between 3 african dwarf frogs, or 3 ottos. I am leaning more towards the frogs, but I heard that not all bettas get along with adfs, while most all get along with ottos...
  12. Can I keep 2 frogs in a 10 gallon?

    Other Fish
    My past frog died and I'm getting a replacement for my 10 gallon. The frogs I get are the see-through kind from Grow a Frog, but they look just like an adf/acf as adults. Females can have bodies up to half a dollar long and males are half that size. Would they be too big to both live...
