The male is a lot darker with the spots then a female, and a female is a lot lighter with the spots. The male is 20% smaller that the female due to the females egg laying. Females are also much heavier.

Can you put a dwarf frog and a Siamese fighting fish together?

I don't know the answer myself, but I can suggest that you find a pet store that sells exotic pets like those and ask them. They should know. All betas are different. I have put a beta with a dwarf frog and my beta destroyed the frog. However I do know a few people who have been able to put different frogs into the same tank. I currently have a plecostumous in the same tank and he's been alive for about 4 months now (new record!). It all depends on your beta, the only way you'll know is if you try it and your frog either lives or dies.
