I'm thinking of adding a couple of Dwarf Frogs to my tank of fish. It's a 75 gallon. I have 2 Barbs (tin) 3 silver dollars. a couple of kissing, a few cories and a few clown loaches. Will the Frogs be alright? Will they be compatible?

The dwarf frogs won't hurt anyone, but I might think twice about adding them with larger fish, especially the Tinfoil Barbs. From my experiences, tinfoil barbs have no problem with eating just about anything that looks interesting. The frogs might be just fine, but if it was me, I'd set up a smaller tank, maybe 10 gallons or so, just for a couple frogs...if you REALLY want them. The dwarf frogs generally do best in more peaceful aquariums with smaller fish.

Thanks so much for the info. Maybe I'll pass on the frogs. I don't want anything harmful to happen to them.

Thanks again!

They should be fine in your tank. I have a few in my 55 with some big fish, and nothing has ever happened to any of them. However, they are capable of eating small fish like guppies and neons (trust me, I've seen it), so don't add them if you're planning to keep very small fish.
