Are there any ADF owners here?
If so please help me make sure I am careing for these guys right. This is my first time trying to keep ADF's and I never have bought fish or other pets with out researching them first until now. I original bought just one ADF but then read they like company so I bought another, I also at first had them in one of my fish tanks but they were haveing a hard time getting food so I moved them into a 2.5 gallon tank by themselves. Right now there is a small heater that is for 2-5 gallon tanks, gravel from an established fish tank, a small internal filter, and two silk plants. I plan on getting some real plants soon to replace the fake ones. Is this a good setup? I am thinking about replaceing the gravel with sand if you guys think that would be better. And what plants would be good? I would like a floating plant like wisteria, as well as a small plant pygmy chain swords. If I need to I can later on get a 5 gallon tank if the 2.5 is not enough room for them. There names are Iggy and Ziggy and I have had Ziggy for 3 days and Iggy I just got today. Sorry its kind of long but thank you all for reading it and helping me.;-)

yes this set up should be good... i like the idea of a slightly larger tank but thats just my opinion....

Yeah it's a fine set up. I'd personally shoot for a 5g, but that is just me!

plants are cool
just a heads up that the dwarf chain sword tends to like its light and the floating wisteria will act as a shade... some dwarf sagitaria would be nice if you can find it ..i like the water wisteria in the tanks i have with frogs they tend to rest amongst the leaves...ADIOS....

Thanks everyone. I will get them the 5 or maybe even a 10 gallon one asap. If I get the 10 I may add another frog or 2.
