I can tell you from my exp that the larger group size you get to themselves (and proper larger tank of cause) the more fun they are to watch cause they show their natural behavior more & more.
I'd def go for live plants with them guys and if you'd like to add a "treat" offer them a hiding space such as a half coconut (can be found at the pet shop reptile section).
Be careful with them with filters they can get their lil legs stuck FAST in the intake, I had found it safer to use a sponge OR cover a normal filter with any piece fabric you have.

Also when they feel 'homy' they start this sound at night when everything is fully quiet & dark that I can only describe as singing frog
Lemme see if I find a pic of my tank for you...

Duh! Its already loaded onto my tanks lol here's the link African Dwarf Frogs - 20 gallon Freshwater fish tank
Initially I had a 10g with something like 6 or 8 and then I up'ed it to 20g mainly cause I wanted to add Oto's to the tank. I'd find it safe to have 10ADF in a 10g thou.

I have them now in a 10 gallon with an internal sponge filter. There are two of them and they live with my ember tetras, neons, dwarf corys, and 3 ghost shrimp. They are alot of fun the way they swim all over. Wanted to add they have real plants and a cave thing they really like. Heres a picture there are a few more plants now than when I took the picture.

Just be careful with the fish you add there, ADFs are very hard to feed / eat they're superst slow and the more fish/ other critters in the tank the less likly they will get their needed amount of foods, so keep an eye out for it.

Otherwise I love the changes in the tank!!!!

Thanks I made sure to get the frogs use to feeding in a certain area so they know to go there at feeding time. I use a turkey baster to put it right in front of them. The tetras don't seem to eat anything thats not floating so so far so good.
