I'm still looking for possible uses for my old 3-gallon aquarium. I wouldn't even ask about it, but even the Badman's profile doesn't say otherwise, and every site I found seems to think the African dwarf frog would do fine in there.

So, is it possible to make a frog/ some frogs comfortable in there? I'd be willing to try different filtration or care methods, though my main question is whether the frogs would be happy in a space that size, and if so how many?

At very least, I'm curious about whether they can be kept singly (anywhere) or if they need groups.

What I have read is 1 gallon of water per frog. But here is a great amphibian site and they have a subforum for aquatic frogs http://www.caudata.org/forum/f53-other-amphibians/f54-anura-frogs-toads/f79-pipidae-african-clawed-toads-surinam-toads-aquatic-frogs/ I didn't pull up the info you are looking for but you could join and post your question and see if you get any responses.
Take care,
Mary.

Thanks, I will (yeowch, first topic I see is comparing Hymenochirus species. They obviously know their stuff, I've only just learnt to tell ADFs from ACFs!)

I asked because fish conditions I'm used to, but these are air-breathers, so... no such familiarity.

African Dwarf Frog profile - ADF

http://badmanstropicalfish.com/profiles/profile99.html 
 
Any aquarium that an ADF is put in has to be fully cycled. There is a lot of great ADF information on Badmans also. They are easy to care for, need a varied diet and proper housing.

They are very entertaining little creatures.

Hope That Helps
