The Frog will be just as happy in 6.6 gallons as 10! I've seen Pac-Man frogs live in their entire life and grow to 8" across in a standard 5 gallon bucket.

How do you know when a frog or any other small animal is happy? Since they can't tell us I think the best way to go about things is to keep them as healthy as possible and give them enough space to exhibit natural behaviours. To provide less than that is putting your own desires before the needs of the animal.
