    Default Should I get my African Dwarf Frog a tankmate?


    0 Not allowed!
    I have a single african dwarf frog in a 1.5 gallon, I am pretty sure it is a female at this point. I've had her for about 6 months in this tank and she has done quite well, but I was wondering if she might do OK to have another ADF added to the tank?

    If I do add another ADF, should I get another female?

    Thanks for any advice~

    I don't see why it would hurt. ADF don't really have that big a bioload, so you should be ok with 2.

    Yeah you should be fine with another. I saw this at brookstone the other day and it made me sad. 2 ADF in about a quart of water without a filter.
    10g- 5 diamond tetra, 1 oto, 1 albino BN pleco, 1 assassin snail and 2 blue shrimp. Heavily planted tank.

    Its sick, they way some people treat animals/pets as ornaments and don't give them the proper respect.

    As far as I knew, you should even put one in a tank smaller than a 10g. They like room, and move about quite abit. getting more than one can actually cause them to make songs. So beware if you want to hear them, croak.

    I have one dwarf african frog in my 10 gal. planted and he croaks sometimes. I don't notice it every day, but he does it fairly often.

    The 1.5 gal tank is too small for the 0ne you have really.A 5 gal is about min for humane keeping if small frogs.They actually do better by thereselves because they can be aggressive and will often attempt to drown there frog tankmates.2 in a 20 gal would be okay,as long as there are good hiding spots.

    I've got four...but they're in a 55. I wouldn't do two in anything less than a 10. I've never seen any aggression from them, but then again there's a lot of room and hiding spaces in my tank.
