Okay...I'm going to do a persuasive speech on ADFs (trying to convince people that they need one) so I need a little info. I'm thinking about buying one as a "sensory aid" for the speech. In case I can't return it, would it be safe in my 20 gallon tank, and would it need a buddy? I have 7 bloodfin tetras, 4 harlequin rasboras, 4 panda cory cats, a rubberlip pleco, a brig, and a couple of ghost shrimp. Would everyone get along okay?

I think it would go along great! They are pretty laid back. They tend to get a little nippy at feeding time, but only cause they're practically blind. They do tend to do better in pairs or small groups. A great site is: http://allaboutfrogs.org/
HTH!

Well, it appears that I'll either have to borrow an ADF or just bring in pictures. I don't have the money, time, or capability to feed the froggies specifically, and I would NOT want them to live in suboptimal conditions. Oh well! I'll have to call my favorite LFS and see if they'll let me take one for a couple of days.

Sorry it didn't work out Music.

If you do get one or two with that many fish in the tank you would have to watch the ADF's and make sure they get enough to eat.

Good Luck!
