Need Advice - Cheap Aquarium for Library

I am a Children's Librarian and want to give the kids access to an aquarium. I am paying for it out of pocket so it cannot be too expensive. I was thinking maybe an African Dwarf Frog tank. I had one for several years when I was younger and thought it would be a cool feature to have. I've looked into it and it seems like they would be easy to care for. Does this sound like a good tank for kids to enjoy? Or any suggestions on friendly fish that are easy to care for?

Hi, welcome!


Anything colourful or eye-grabbing I think. We had the experts here do a great cichlid tank at the school but ended up changing it to more colour as was getting told it was kind of "boring".

Have you ever considered German Blue Rams ? I also have some less common livebearers ..
I ship fish every Monday so no big deal for me to add one more box ...
