If you go with the 9g you would be alright with a male African clawed frog (but make sure to get male as the minimum tank size is 10g’s but males are quite a bit smaller than females...if you went with that one you would only need 1 frog...fastraver said:Due the movie and a thorn in my side, Finding Nemo. Gold fish are an out. I have a toad in a 20 long and he has no interest in it what so ever. As per wife, lack of water.
Never had a frog before. Might look into that.
I have had Danios, and they did survive as dither fish in my cichlid tank. But the point of the swimming a lot is very true.
I think neon tetras or guppies. That might work.
If you go with the 5 gallon get 2 dwarf frogs...
Please make sure you don’t mix them up as the big one would not do good in a 5 gallon once he started to grow...
These frogs are much much different then a toad lol
These are fully aquatic frogs...(they live in a full tank of water, they don’t need perches or rocks as they can not leave the water or they will die...they just need a tiny space at the top to go up for air... they occasionally take a breathe of air because they have lungs but can also breathe through their skin.... so it would look like a normal fish tank but have a frog or frogs depending on what you choose... I will take a picture of mine in the morning and attach them so you can see... my big one is an albino and was about the size of a quarter (not counting her legs) when I got her... now she is nearly the size of a small ball lol and she isn’t a year old yet...only about 6-7 months lol they are a lot of fun and as I mentioned the small ones are really funny.... we call our 3 the 3 stooges... they do silly things like fall over backwards randomly and like sit on their butts and they are just commical to watch... and those ones only get about an inch to 1 1/2” s big... much much smaller
Endlers would be ok in the 9g but not the 5g.... and would be a decent option... it says 10 gallon but keep less or more water changes and 1 gallon should be an issue.... but I think the reason they say 10 gallon is they would want a 10 gallon long...scarface said:Yikes! Sounds overbearing, to be honest. I hope they don't do that here, in the US--not that I keep a single goldfish by itself or anything.
If OP is going to stick with a nano tank, I'd go with a small group of male endlers with a few Amano shrimp. I think the activity level will be fun to watch for your kid.
I’m guessing that the 5 gallon would be a standard 5 gallon but because he is saying 9g tank I’m assuming it’s a 9g tall... maybe we should clarify with the OP.... are you looking at one of those glo light hex tanks that are tall? (For the 9g)
Weather a tank is tall or long can drastically change what we recommend
