    Question New tank, African Dwarf Frog & Guppies?

    0 Not allowed!
    My girlfriend wants to get ADFs in a 10g for her kids. I wanted to add fancy guppies to the tank because they are pretty and breed. I think they would like the mix. I'm pretty sure someone tried this combo at some point...

    Outside of the babies being eaten, any thoughts?

    Tops 3 frogs, then 1 or 2 breeding pairs of guppies to start. Also, I have my own tanks if a bunch of fry survive...

    Also would be curious how frogs deal with snails / Corys especially in such a small tank. Need something to clean up and I know my RCS will be nothing but food (not sure about Ghost Shrimp)

    Shrimp and snail junkie... What can I say, I like the little things in life.

    I haven't had ADF's with guppies yet (guppies are so tempting though...someday!)

    But I have seen frogs with pest snails and assassin snails and some kind of pointy snail and I can say my 6 frogs don't deal with snails at all. They ignore them completely.

    As for the cory's, they're faster than ADF's so like my loaches you might have to do a staged feeding if the cory's get greedy so the frogs don't starve.

    I recently learned from my LFS that cory's (and anything else with sensitive barbs) don't' do well in substrates like eco-complete, because it is sharp. ADF's don't do well because they can ingest. So in that way they are compatible at least!

    I have ottos and they are cute and awesome and very frog friendly. Don't compete for food with ADF's.

    Guppies do best with several females to a male. Other than that, it'd work.
    I hate hearing people say "it's only a $3/$5/$1 fish/shrimp, so it's ok if it dies, I can just get another." It's still an animal! All animals should be treated like they're worth $10,000.
