Frog question?
 
So I have a 50 gallon community and a 29 gallon divided 5 times for my male bettas. Where could I put 3 african dwarf frogs? The 50 has a pleco, cories, rainbow shark, female bettas, angels, gouramis, etc.

Either one I suppose. I killed mine because apparently they were wild-caught, and would only eat live food... (didn't realise he wasn't the one eating the reptile sticks until it was too late)

29g would be better probably I'd think.. only because african dwarf frogs are slow poke eaters.. and bettas are not as fast as the fish in your 50g. What I do is put mine in the breeder box every couple of days with his own food and ive seen him eat it so I know that works.

The 29g would be better, I think. Not only for the reason Austin mentioned but also because the pleco in the 50g might try to suck the slime off of your frogs, which wouldn't exactly be in their best interests. The angels might try to eat them, too.

I thought the 29 too, but it is divided 5 times, so the spaces aren't extremely big. Since frogs are social I thought it was best to keep them in multiples..
