That was from a previous post.
And the pleco's are bristlenose catfish
Bettas would not be an option for this tank IMO
. Bettas are jumpers. Especially the females. I would only keep them in tanks with lids.
Same for ADF
's. Frogs who surface to breathe should not be kept in an open tank like that. I don't think they should be kept with fish at all, but if you must, the tank needs a lid.
Balloon mollies are bred to be deformed. They have curved spines that affect their swimming and they often have health issues and shortened lifespans. Obviously you have to decide what you personally think is right, but in my opinion, this practice is unethical and I encourage you to purchase regular mollies.
As far as filtration goes, I'm not sure what your options would really be. I think coffee table tanks usually run a UGF
