hey guys! i got some new guys to add to my 5 gallon an hour or so ago. 3 ghost shrimps. currently i have two happy little ADF frogs that i absolutely love. but after what im seeing im scared to even put them in the tank! i have them in their petsmart bag acclimating to the water temp and one of my frogs is so interested in them, hes just standing on his back legs watching them. he swims up to the bag and bites. is he going to try to kill them all if i let them free in the tank? i have a 10 gallon with 2 mollies and a betta, but it doesnt have many hiding spots yet, would that be a better bet for their survival?

he is so cute!! he's probably just wondering what the heck that thing is doing in his tank. adfs have been known to eat smaller shrimp such a ghost shrimp. that being said, it's the luck of the draw. the shrimp might be fast enough to avoid the frogs and the frogs may be too blind to see them.

oop yep, the two on the right are. those green things are eggs!
awesome! do you think the tiny babies could survive with the frogs? from what ive seen i would say my frogs are mostly blind because it takes them 3 tries to get a bite of food sometimes, ha. do the shrimp grow fast? sorry for all the questions
