African dwarf frog

Thinking about getting a pair African dwarf frogs for our new 20gallon long. Does anyone have any experience? My daughters are fascinated with the frogs each time we go to the pet shop so I thought they would be fun.
We will have live plants
Slate rock caves
Sand substrate

I was considering getting a pair of German blue rams as well.

I had originally planned on dismantling our ten gallon and transferring all of the fish to the twenty. Now I'm considering keeping both and putting a few from out ten in the twenty and keeping both. Our ten is overstocked at the moment with

2 platys
3 guppies
2 glofish (May get a few more for them)
1 Cory (plan on getting a few more)
1 algae eater not sure what kind. Possibly an Otto
1 male betta
1 common pleco ( have plans to rehome when he gets bigger he is just a little guy right now)
And mystery snail we found today

They are quiete fun little guys! I would take everyone but the betta and then add the frogs. Try for 4-5. Then buy some frog pellets. Pretty easy to care for! They like floating plants as well.definetly cover that tank!
Also maybe post some pics of the mystery algae eater for us to ID.

I will try to get a pic of the algae eater on here today. He is camera shy!

Our betta is very peaceful and gets along well with the other fish. I may try to introduce him to the 20 gallon and if he has issues I will move him back. Our house is pretty small so I'm trying to figure out what to do. He really likes to hide in the corner in the plants. So hopefully he will be okay. I'm going to build him a small slate rock cave when it gets in and plant around it

The only concern is you need to make sure the frogs get food. As they will eat flakes they need more such as sinking frog pellets or bloodworms. I use a tweezers and hand feed mine freeze dried bloodworms every day. The fish steal all their food otherwise! Fun lil guys though. They also like caves to hide in, they will be shy at first, but after a week or two they will be the first to come up to the tank for feeding time!

I will definitely get them something and figure a way to get the food to them so they don't go hungry
