I'll try to wait it out and see how it goes. Not sure if my husband is willing to let me get a bigger tank. I love him dearly we are just short in cash. Thanks for the help.

I'm sorry to have hijacked your post.

I would recommend looking on craigslist, for a larger tank. I've gotten many free tanks on CL. I'm sorry the pet store lied to you. They will survive, but stress on them can leave them more venerable to infections like ICH. **knock on wood**

From what you've told us, sounds to me like you should return either the tetras or the guppies. I vote the tetras. They are more temperamental- When you upgrade, you can get more fish again.

Sorry again, just chatty this late at night I guess. Again, they will be fine in the meantime while you try to find a bigger tank even just a 20 would be a great help. ( or return either the guppies or the tetras) Be sure to watch the water levels, and change the water frequently. OR get a small 5 gallon for your 3 frogs. They don't need an Airstone, so that's one less thing to buy, and 5 gallons are small, and should be fairly cheap. Good luck!

I plan on moving everyone to my 30 gallon and using the 10 gallon for the fry. I also have a new 75 gallon I just got I'll put my showcase fish in
I PM'd you- so we can give this lady her post back. Haha
