Default Can you keep a D. Auratus by Itself?

I am making my first vivarium, It will be a 16 by 16 by 16, and all custom.
I can't really come up with the money to buy 3 adult frogs at once, so I was thinking that I could get a juvenile and raise it up, then get the last two frogs as adults.

Is this OK? It will be a maximum of 1 year before I can get the last ones, and a minimum of about 6 months.

I want to get used to their care, and a large tank for 1 frog will keep the isopods and springtails reproducing steadily.

So is my plan good? The tank is 17 gallons, is that OK for 3 auratus, or just 2?

Yes you can keep one by itself without any issues. You might need to read up on the behaviors of the frogs as introducing new frogs into an established territory can cause some problems with combating.

A phrase you never want to hear;
"It seemed like a good idea at the time."

You sure can. Just be wary, as Ed indicated, when adding newcomers as there could be some turf battling.
