We have a ten gallon tank that already houses 4 large platies, and two tiny platy fry - about three months, and one month old, so it looks like they are sticking around. Would we be overstocked if we added an ADF? There are no plans to get a bigger tank yet, so it would have to be okay for the long run as well. Also, If there is the possibility of an ADF, what is the best way to introduce it to the tank and are they okay on their own or are they better in pairs? Any help is appreciated.

Personally I wouldn't add an ADF for a couple of reasons.

1) Overstocking
2) Plattie's wouldn't give him a chance to eat (he'd starve)

Okay - so I wont add one to the tank, but I have a daughter that has her heart set on a frog. What is the smallest tank I could buy that one or two would be comfortable in?

IMO a 5 Gallon set up for just a few frogs would be perfect.
