Question 15g ACF stocking

How many ACF would fit in a 15g? The tank has everything lid, lighting, heater, thermometer, overkill filtration etc.

Base on my research people said you can fit 2 ACF in a 20g high aquarium, the length of a 20g tall is similar to a 15g standard.

Most likely just 1 ACF can live in a 15 gallon tank, if you're still looking for a species to own, what about a couple of Fire-bellied toads? They make a great beginner species, they are diurnal, semi-aquatic (Benefit from land and water areas) and are great captives and bold in captivity. Here's a care-sheet: The Fire-Bellied Toad

Our sister forum Frog Forum.net would be really helpful in this situation, you could post about Bombina and Xenopus there

Here is the direct link to the Bombina (Fire-belly toad) portion on both of the forums: Fire Belly Toads (Bombina) and <font color="FF6600">Anura: Frogs & Toads</font> - Bombinatoridae: Fire-bellied toads at Caudata.org Newt and Salamander Portal And if you still want aquatic frogs: Aquatic Clawed Frogs

I'll try to look unto it, I hope someone is selling them nearby.

Thats the only problem I'm having I'm surrounded by many fish but not amphibians that I really want.

May not be reliable at all, but some people can internationally ship fish, and have a picture of B.orientalis, so maybe if I find them, you could order some Bombina from them

Huh, I thought that only 1 male could live in one, is it because the males are smaller? I never really thought that that little of a size difference really mattered with this species

The males are about half the size of females, personally I would use a bigger tank though

I decided to just stick with fishes, maybe reptiles are not for me yet.

Frogs are amphibians fyi. And I agree , a larger tank is better. African clawed frogs are very active and enjoy swimming around lots. I have mine in a 40g and they are thriving.
