How Many African Dwarf Frogs...?

I've been looking into having an african dwarf frog tank and I'm wondering how many can comfortably live in a 10 gallon?

5-6. Just make sure you have good filter and heater.

What are these?!?

Found these all over my African dwarf frog tank. I just cleaned the tank out 2 days ago. I cought them in an embrace last night and were still in an embrace this morning. Is it possible that they are eggs?!

Alright good to hear! I which case is there anything you would recommend doing to help them to hatch? I'm assuming I should remove either the eggs or the 2 frogs and betta in order to avoid them being eaten?

Yes, the betta and or frogs will eat them. If you want them to hatch, you can put them in a cup or separate tank with tank water -- don't expose them to air.

Here's a good guide.

How many ADFs?

The general rule of thumb for African Dwarf Frogs is one frog per gallon of water. However, I agree with mimiheart who suggests 5 to 6 ADFs in a 10 gallon tank. That will give you ample space for a few plants and plenty of hiding places.

Thank you! I agree, I definitely want room for plants for them.
