Default Tank set up for african dwarf frog

Hello every one! i am planning to get an african dwarf frog. i heard they need at least one gallon of water each so if I have a 3.5 gallon tank could I comfortably hold a single frog in it? I dont want the frog to be in too small of a cage so if it is please let me know :)

One frog in 3.5 gallons is quite good, and I would say the actual rule for ADFs is one frog per three gallons... No more than that. :)

I have three of these guys in quite a big tank. They are nice and fat but often in poor condition when they are flown into the UK. Hope yours are in better condition. Interestingly the males get quite aggressive towards each other when courting, have not seen it to the same extent in any other frog.
