I have a betta and an African dwarf frog in a 5 gallon. They've been together for 3 weeks now. I have a few questions regarding these two:
1) Can the betta subsist on bloodworms? He doesn't eat the Hikari pellets I have for him. I heard it's not nutritionally balanced but I thought wild bettas are carnivores are primarily eat these things. I could try to wean him on pellets but I don't want to unless it's necessary.
2) My African dwarf frog hides a lot in the cave or under a clump of Java Moss. He only comes out occasionally, like during feeding or randomly in the evening hours. Is that normal? How can I make him more active?
3) The frog sometimes snaps at the betta when he gets too close. I only observed this today during feeding time (as usually they are completely avoiding each other). The betta's fins now have two small holes. Is this grounds for removing the frog from the tank? I have a 10 gallon with honey gouramis and zebrafish but I'm worried about the fluorite substrate in there, as I heard frogs are sensitive to iron.
4) Should I buy another frog? By some accounts I heard they are OK to be kept singly, others say they are extremely social (maybe that's why he's not active?)
Thanks for the help, I know it's a lot to read.
