    I searched and read a few threads but didnt see any concrete:

    would there be any issue with having a tank of multiple species?

    Im thinking a frog (probably ADF) a crayfish or freshwater lobster, missippi map turtle, small catfish or some other type of fish and of course guppies.

    Im aware the gupies might be eaten (probably) but do you think the other species would all kill each other?
    Thanks for any info!

    i see a few issues
    crayfish/turtle may hurt/eat frog
    turtle will eat crayfish
    turtle will probably eat catfish (depending on type of catfish)
    if catfish is a bigger species catfish will eat frog and crayfish

    the big concern is also that IIRC male maps get around 5-6 inchs and females up to 11inchs that is a big tank required to house them alone properly and that is quite a large bioload to take care of for the health of the frog, crayfish, and catfish.

    ADF need to be with "gentle" and "peaceful" aquatic creatures who can't nip or bite them.

    Adf frogs are little bitty. African Clawed frogs (ACF) are 5-6" long. They may attack fish, slashing at them with the claws on their hindlegs.
    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.

    Ultimately...You will end up w/ just a Map Turtle. The rest will become prey.
