Default Picking a frog right for my tank

I am trying to pick the right frog for my tank. I have a ten gallon (10x20x12) horizontal. I wanted to know what frogs would be good for a beginner in a tank like that? And can I have more than one in there? And I want to know if there's a good place to get the frogs in the Tampa Bay area.

Check the care sheets--they provide a great start if you're just entering the hobby. Check out the leucomelas, tinctorius, and auratus specifically.

I'd say if these are your first frogs, you can't go wrong with a pair of leucomelas for a 10 gallon viv. They're bold, hardy, active, easy to care for, and relatively inexpensive and easy to get ahold of. Good luck!

i second the leucs. you can put a pair in there, and they're so much fun. mine are always out and about, begging for food or just showing off. definetly great frogs, for anyone, not just beginners!
