    Hello all:D
    Looking for a tank that my wonderful African dwarf frog (Adsila ) can leisurely find her food and swim to the top quicker then the current twenty gallon tank she's in maybe even find her some friends
    Would like one that can fit on my desk corner so I'm thinking 2-3 gallon of that's acceptable for ADF's
    All help welcome :)

    I have a betta in a 2.5 gallon tank that might work for your ADF.

    2.5 is ok but I'd go with a 5g minimum for 2 frogs. (no more than 2 in a 5)
    If you are wanting to get more frogs go with a 10g for four.
    They are much more active when given some flipper space, imo.

    Don't forget ADF's need to be in quarantine for at least 3 months due to Chytrid.

    I'm glad your frog appears healthy. They are cute little buggers. :)

    We'd be happy to help.
    Please post a link to the tank rather than a picture.
    We have to be careful due to copyright issues.

    I have my three frogs in a 10 gallon and they absolutely love swimming all around it:) Not to mention floating at the surface many times throughout the day:)

    3g is ok for one frog.
    Pretty tank but it looks like it doesn't have covering?
    A hood or lid of some sort is necessary.
