I was wondering if I could get an African Dwarf Frog and keep with some fish in a 10g. The fish would include (they are all possible options, cause I might move some from my other tanks) Betta, mystery snail, swordtail, platy, guppy, catfish, and maybe black or normal neon tetra.

I have some pellets for aquatic frogs and tadpoles, I bought them for tadpoles, and I don't have tadpoles anymore. So I was wondering if those work? And are there any care instructions I need to know?

I have 2 adfs. They've lived with bettas in bowls, unheated tanks and heated tanks. They are pretty easy. You don't want anything that can eat them. A betta and adf should get along. Mystery snail might get big. I had one adf die from a bristlenose pleco who slime sucked. And be very careful with filter. Their little limbs can get sucked in. Had one die that way. They don't have a heavy bioload but their food does. Hope that helps. Also. Mine used to hide constantly but they got more confident with time. Now they sit and watch me.

I might be leery of the catfish. Depending on type and aggression. I also am not sure but adfs may want a few other adfs with them. I have 2 who get along great. 1 male and 1 female.

It's an oto, he is like the most peaceful fish I have. He just swims around doing his own thing.

Okay, thanks.
I think the tadpol food is fine. On mine it says it's for frogs and tadpoles. Mine also eat blood worms and shrimp if they're small enough. My understanding with frogs is that they don't have a big bioload but their food does. So try not to oversees them. I also recommend avoiding plecos. I had a bristlenose who slime sucked one to death.

Okay, if the frogs are available when I go to my LFS. If they are I will probably get 2.

I think you'll be happy with them. They're cute and funny.

I have had many African dwarf frogs. I have finally found a system that they seem to like most, where they breed and thrive in. This is easy, and very enjoyable.

African dwarf frogs are very sensitive to vibrations. They dislike any water movement or flow. My two are in an unfiltered, heavily planted tank with no heater. They are fed once a week with live blackworms.

I would not keep any dwarf frogs with fish. I don't think they will thrive while competing for food. The only fish I see working out would be the oto, maybe.
