African Clawed Frogs in a Vivarium

I currently have 2 african clawed frogs that I have had for about 1.5 years. They are about 2.5 inches long. I have them in a 20gallon tall right now, but due to some rearranging in the house I need to move them and my other fish tanks.
I read online that the frogs should not have to swim more than 12 inches to get to air. Is this true? or is that only for the dwarf frogs?
Does anyone have any examples for this? How much space should I really have for these guys? If I used a 29gal tank would I be able to get any land creatures in there?
Has anyone done this with success, with African Clawed Frogs?
I would also like to find something that could live on land/water with them. Does anyone have any suggestions? I am not determined to put anything else living in it, but it sure would be cool.
I understand AFC can be very picky and don't like to live with other animals, but what are your experiences?
Thanks for any help.

I don't think it has anything to do with picky- just the opposite. They will eat any tank mates that fit in their mouth.

Yeah, if they can eat it, they will eat it.

If they think they can eat it they will eat it.

You could make a half and half tank and add a American Green Tree Frog or European Tree Frog, dont add any fire-belly toads as they have poisonous glands .
