Study some pictures before you go to the store, and make sure you're really getting dwarf frogs and not clawed ones. The clawed frogs will grow up to eat little fishies.

Luckily, in this one thing, I have experience. I have darling little a male Dwarf frog named "Tad" in one of my Betta tanks. I think the Dwarf variety are WAY cuter then their larger cousins. Thanks for the heads up though, I hear that is a common and sad mistake.

How about instead of a Zebra/Clown Pleco you get a Scribble Pleco (L129). Its in the same family as a Zebra and is smaller than the Clown pleco by about an inch (which is a big difference in a smaller tank!). It can be found at www.exoticfinds.net for $22.

Hello again,
Any thoughts on adding a pair of Longfin Zebra Danios to my stock list?
To recap it is 25 gallons with:
2 African Dwarf Frogs
1 Scribble or Leopard frog Pleco
5 Cory Cats (Bandit or Panda)
5 Fancy Guppies (all male)
1 Dwarf Gourami
3 Swordtails (1m, 2f)
1 Mystery Snail (brig)

Plus 2 Longfin Zebra Danois?

Also any opinions on the Leopard frog pleco? I've heard they can be delicate. Anyone have any experience with the guys?

Danios are schooling, so once again you need a group of them. I'd either get atleast 6 or just leave them out. I think with the guppies, swordtails and their babies, your middle/surface area will be filled, so I'd just leave the danios out. If you are set on them, then get 6.

2 planted tanks: 40g, 20g ; 38g Reef tank
