    Default Would this be overstocked for a 10 gallon?

    3 African Dwarf Frogs
    1 Zebra Nerite Snail
    1 female Betta

    Weekly 40% water changes with Prime. Marina Slim S10 filter with Aquaclear Biomax, Aquaclear Filter Foam, and Water Polisher. No live plants, just silk plants and some smooth caves. I would be target feeding the African Dwarf Frogs to ensure they got their food. Temperature planned to be around 78-80 degrees. Right now I'm going through the fishless cycling process, so I don't have any livestock in it yet.

    ADF's create alot of bioload, from the few here with experience I've read about. I've no experience with them, however, and have not ever read about them being kept with a betta.

    Generally, I've read ADF's should be kept in a species-only tank.

    With no live plants, you may have a nitrAte issue

    Also, some bettas cannot have any tank mates at all. I have one that did well enough for quite some time before turning into a murderous little thing. He can't even have a snail pal anymore.

    Maybe you could look into the aquatic frogs? They weren't very pricey when I saw them for sale, and you get to feed them with tweezers, or your hands if your daring enough. They are cute little things to take care of.

    Of course I can't find a link to these frogs, but they are grey-brown and don't grow very big, I'd guess about an inch or two.

    Default Anyone kept African Dwarf Frogs with Bettas?

    How did they get along? Would you recommend keeping them together?

    I'm thinking of getting a female Betta in with 3 African Dwarf Frogs in a 10 gallon, but I want to make sure they won't be aggressive toward each other. I will be target feeding the frogs and teaching them where to go for food before adding in the Betta.

    For me i have had some really peaceful female bettas. And some really aggressive ones.

    Same thing with the male it would depend highly on the fish.

    The other side is if the frog dose try ti nibble kn the fins or have a go at the female betta it could turn nasty and fight back causing damage to both parties.

    Personally i would go for a planted tank and a betta for me. Less risk and safer.

    P.S threads merged since they are along similar lines

    Default Are African Dwarf Frogs, Nerites, Mystery Snails compatible?


    0 Not allowed!
    Was thinking of trying 3 African Dwarf Frogs, 1 Tiger Nerite Snail, and 1 Mystery Snail in a 10 gallon aquarium. I haven't heard much about African Dwarf Frogs with snails, though. Would the frogs nip at the antennae or bodies of the snails, or try to swallow them? I've heard that frogs will sometimes bite the fins of long-finned fish, mistakenly thinking that the movement=food and being too blind to tell the difference without a nip, but I don't know if they could have the same problem with snails or not. I'm particularly concerned about the Mystery Snails, as they have much more of their body out at any given time, and their antennae are more prominent as compared to Nerite Snails. Also, does one of them out compete the other for food? They are all pretty slow eaters, so I'm not sure how that competition would go. If anyone has kept these together I would love to hear how it turned out.

    This thread is very similar to two others you have already started, that have been combined by a Mod for the very purpose of keeping all of the pertinent info in one thread...you are going to be asked the same questions over and over again, about the beginnings of this single 10G tank, if you start multiple threads concerning it.

    Thread now merged with your other 2, please keep any further questions concerning the one 10G in question, to the original thread, I can re-title it if you wish, "10G Tank" or whatever you choose.

    This way, we have the entire history of the tank in one place, and can offer the best advice.

    Thanks, and again, do not hesitate to ask more questions. Just please keep them in the same place, when applicable.
