My daughter wants something with her betta.. platy's didn't work they picked on him too much, would an ADF be feasable?

A lot of people keep ADFs with bettas with no problems, but some bettas don't like ADFs. If you do get one, make SURE it's an ADF not an albino clawed frog...those get to be 6" big, if I remember correctly, and eat fish. Scary things. Anyway, I keep snails with my betta Herbie. He really likes them, especially the brigs. But right now Alexander has a LOT of snails in with him - all spixis except for one brig- and he picks on the brig to no end. It all depends on the betta.
Out of insanity comes brilliance...or was it the other way around?

I recently added an ADF with my adult male betta who only knew snails. They get along just fine.

But I do agree with Music, all Betta's have different personalities and you may have an aggressive male. I would try it out, if he attacks the frog, bring it back to the store. If he only checks it out, then you know they will be compatible. :-)

he doesn't seem aggressive so far.. there were platys in with him at first, they had to be removed because they were picking on him not the other way around.. I guess I will try it and if it doesn't work out I'll put the ADF in my twenty.

Sounds like you have a chill betta I would recommend getting a small ADF, is this for the ten gallon tank? Also keep in mind that ADFs eat frozen blood worms and have to be fed differently then Bettas. When in doubt you can get a snail.

yes its for the ten gallon. I keep frozen blood worms for some variety for the cory cats so that shouldn't be a problem. thanks guys :-) (cory cats are in a different tank this one right now has a betta, otto, and some ramshorns that have managed to get in there on plastic plants from my old ten gallon I'm guessing)
