I don't own an ADF yet. I've heard they are super cute.

You want super cute I would recommend freshwater shrimp freshwater dwarf crayfish, rabbit snails and/or Mystery Snails

The ADF I adopted from people who didn't want it had skin peeling of. I found out although it could have been something worse, it was apparently from them breaking down a larger tank and then having about 20 fish stored in a 1.4 gallon tank for I don't know how long. I came to buy something from them and then they pleadingly asked me to take everything. The fish were very agitated due to toxic water I'm thinking, and one fish bit the ADF in the face and injured his eye and he lost it. Maybe could have recovered if it wasn't suffering from ammonia and nitrite poisoning. Small nightmare. I wasn't expecting to adopt 20 fish including a adf.

The ADF got a mate and the odd croaking noises they make became less frequent. Very interesting.

The 2 froggies went to live at my friends house and they lived for a couple years or so longer. The one eyed male went first and about 6 months later the female. Friend is thinking of the possibility of a couple/few more in the future she misses them. I wasn't planning on keeping ADF at that time so was happy after sharing the story and her seeing them a number of times she wanted to adopt them.

Have had a few ADF of the years before that. Shrimp have been a bigger small tank interest. I do like the froggies too though.

I've found larger tanks are easier to care for than the smaller ones. African Dwarf Frogs are social creatures and do better with at least one or two other ADFs in their tank. I am also a proponent of keeping only ADFs in the tank. They are basically shy creatures and cannot compete for food with fish who are much faster and more proficient. Maybe you could get a 10 gallon tank and three ADFs. Sponge filters are inexpensive and work quite well without creating a lot of water movement. Brookster123 suggested sources for used tanks, and to those I would add Craigslist, OfferUp, letgo, or other online sites. Good luck!

Thanks! I got an adf, then decided he wasn't the right pet. Maybe in a few years...
