Question Tank too small? More fish?

I have 2 ACFs and 1 pleco in a ten gallon. The ACFs are only 1" and the pleco is probally a little bitt smaller. I know I will need a larger tank eventually, but how big, and how soon? My frogs and my pleco do just fine getting along. I don't think my frogs really care that my pleco is there. I was also wondering if I could add Cories in to the tank, and how big of a tank I woul need eventually. Hope you can help!! BI!

The pleco, assuming it is the common variety, could reach nearly 24" long.

I believe those require upwards of 75 gallons to properly house. Someone more experienced should probably chime in, though.

Your frogs, however, are fine in the 10-gallon.

Whoops, you said ACF, not ADF. I'm not sure how large those get. Ignore my previous comment!

What kind of pleco are we talking about here? If it's a common pleco, 75 gallon minimum, if not bigger. If it's a bristlenose, which I assume it is because it's in the tag, twenty gallons or more. If it's an oto, ten gallon is fine, fifteen preferrably.

the ACFs will need a 20 gallon tank by themselves,they get 6" long,and require 10 gallons each.
