African dwarf frog relocate.

So I currently have 1 male and 1 female, I love the little guys! They are in my 20 gallon planted, however now I have red cherry shrimp in there (didn't do my research) and I don't want them eaten. So I think it's best to move the afd's? I have a 30 gallon, but it has rocks in it, and a new 45 gallon, but it's probably too tall and I'm gonna get angels and sharks for it as well, so I don't think theyd like it and rocks too. In the 20 I have plattys, Cory catfish, ottos, snail, and the shrimp. So I was thinking if it would be ok for them to be in a 605 gallon, I'll buy it If yes, and for that I have a cheaper little heater, and sand I could put in. I usually hand feed them bloodworms now so that would make my life easier!
Is a 5 gallon big enough for 2?
I'll try and find one with a lid.
Sand substrate good?
I have the little pots and maybe a plant or two I can add.
What kind of filter? Hob or sponge?
Anything else?

With my first girl.

You could probably get a 10 gallon for about the same price as the 5 gallon and it would give them more room. Sand is fine for them and either a sponge filter or hob as long as their food doesn't get blown around too much. Their eyesight isn't that great and mine were always a little slow to find their food. In the 10 you could even add a couple more if you wanted. They're fun to watch in groups.

Yeah, but I had a 10 before and sold it, and my parents don't want another tank in the house at all, so a 5 I can say isn't really even a real aquarium XD

Should I only buy one if there's a lid and filter? What kind of filter?

I would definitely get a lid with the frogs. I have two in a six gallon with one dwarf puffer fish and they are doing fine.

Ok, I think I found a good deal on Craigslist, not many are selling 5 gallons.. Getting it on Sunday. Has a hood and filter. Down side is that it comes with 2 fish! Haha, an albino Cory cat, whom I'll add to my current 6 Cory's in a 20 gallon, and a flaming dwarf gourami, whom I'm not sure what I'll do with yet.. Should I add it to my current w dwarf gourami's in my 29 gallon or with my black red tail shark in the 45?
