They will be going into a 10 gallon tank. They came in a little cube that holds about 16 ounces of water, with a bamboo plant. The plant is sticking a little out of the water. Will it die if totally submerged?

    Bamboo isn’t an aquatic plant, so yes it will die and start to rot if the tips aren’t exposed. Ideally, African dwarf frogs should be kept in their own tank away from fish, due to the risk of starvation as a result of being out-competed for food.

    as for the bamboo,depends on type whether or not it can bee fully submerged,but it grows fast and with proper lighting should be fine.there are tons of fish that can co-exist with ADFs.bettas are one,along with most small peaceful fresh water fish that prefer softer,tropical conditions.guppies might be one one way to go,lots of movement and color.other small livebearers as well might be worth a look,but i would avoid the mollies,IMO they tend to do better in near brackish water which is less than ideal for your frogs.i would also stay away from bottom-dwellers,its good for the frogs to feel safe and not have to fight for food.

    You better have a secured lid, because they are escape artists. My girlfriend’s mom had a lose lid and one jumped out. But tank mates anything really. When going to the pet shop there will be community fish section, those are key such as danios, tetra’s, loaches, guppies, remmienoses, glass suckers.
