    So we divided a 20g high in half.

    I have or betta and mystery snail on 1 side.

    on the other side i have 2 ADF's.

    just trying to decide if i can add any other inhabitants. i was thinking some ottos, or maybe some RCS.

    i know not to get something too aggressive to out compete the adf's for food.

    I would not do otos. They like to be in large groups and only giving them 10g of space isn't enough. You could do some RCS tho I think they'd look nice with the frogs.

    I believe the betta and the frogs will then have a free shrimp dinner.

    If this tank is divided, we're really looking at what can you have as tank mates for your existing fish in 10 gallons, not 20. Makes a world of difference.

    Well actually, maybe not. I think the foot print of a divided 20H is smaller than the footprint of a 10.
