Hey all! Hope everyone is doing well!!!
Okay...I am a few days away from setting up a new 5 gallon aquarium. I am upgrading my african dwarf frog from a one gallon to a five. I will add the water from her current one gallon to the new five gallon and it will then finish off its cycle.
Anyways...my ADF is super tiny, and I have had her for almost a year with no issues. She actually was housed with a male betta for a little while, and her nor the betta had any issues with each other.
So, when I upgrade to the 5 gallon, I would like to add 2-3 fish (3 if small 1 in full grown fish, 2 if 2 in full grown fish). So I need a fish that a 5 gallon would be okay for (other than a betta), and that would survive the cycle.
I thought I wanted to keep two dwarf gouramis, but after researching them more, I think it would only be fair to them in they were in a minimum of a 10 gal since they are territorial.
I am in love with the sunset colored fish, and want COLOR in this little tank. I like the sunset tequila guppies, but my albino ADF I had years ago had a taste for guppies and I dont want to risk that with this ADF, even though she is super small.
So...wondering if anyone had any recommendations for a cycling 5 gallon with an African Dwarf Frog (female) as far as fish are concerned. Colorful, beautiful, unique...all good adjetives that I would use to describe the look of the fish I am hoping to find...as well as combining tank size and compatablity as well as their size (not to big, small tank...not too small, frog's mouth).
No danios, tetras, neons, bettas...
