First fish tank

Hi everyone! I'm a newbie so I should probably introduce myself! I'm louisa and I'm 16. I've never had a fish tank before a few days ago (other than little bowls I put guppies in when I was little but those don't count). I currently have a betta fish and I believe he Click image for larger version

ID:	223657is a double tail? I plan on adding real plants to my tank but my local store was all out so that's going to have to wait until they get more. I have a 10 gallon tank with a filter. I don't know the brand because it was given to me by a friend (the filter too). It doesn't have a heater yet, which I know I need, but since it's winter and the heat in my house is messed up my room (with my fish) is almost constantly 80 degrees anyway. I don't have many pictures right now but I'll take more when I get home. Oh and my betta is a male I've named Sushu. Here's the pictures I have so farClick image for larger version

ID:	223655 also I would like to know if there are any possible tank mates? Or if there are any compatible frogs? I've always liked frogs

I told you id post more pictures. He was hiding in his plant when I got home so I only got one (you can only take so many pics of a fish within a minute) so I took two, one with flash and one without. I just thought they were cuteClick image for larger version

Welcome to aa! About the frogs I think that you can keep them with the betta. They are pretty docile.

But what kind of frogs? I can't imagine a huge frog in the same tank as my little betta. Would african dwarf frogs work? I think I saw some at my local pet store. And thanks for the warm welcome! I have an empty 5 gallon and I think I have an empty 4 gallon somewhere. (My dad used to have fish) so if some fish end up not working with my betta I have a backup.

I have a african dwarf frog in with my guppies and neons and he is pretty settled in there.. Although they are social frogs and prefer to be in pairs so am going to get another one ... I have a 20g tank with plenty of spots for him to explore and hide and he loves to climb in the real plants I have Click image for larger version

Great! I'm so happy to know I can have my betta and froggy and the same time! I'll probably get some live plants too but I want to focus on getting into a schedule for my fish and the tank before starting on plants

Yes I can't wait! I love that my betta has a lot of room right now but he's almost always in his submarine or in the plants so it looks like I have an empty tank. It would be nice to see something once in a while. I heard neon tetras work well with betta. Do they work well with adfs too?

Yes they don't bother each other at all and look as though they've always been together
