Default Species population levels within hobby

Hello all, Doug and I are planning a comeback to the hobby after a relatively short hiatus. I think it's been a year, I hope things haven't changed that much since we left. In case they have, I thought I'd ask for a list of species that are either declining because of lost fad factor or some that need support and building within the hobby. It'd be cool to make up the majority of our collection with these species.

I'd say that castaneoticus is definitely one that's around but not too prevalent, and given its somewhat more subdued (though still beautiful) coloration, I would guess it's more at risk of falling by the wayside than many other species. Chiriqui/bruno (whatever locality you want to give to a green pum) are in a similar boat - they are fairly popular now but I worry about them slipping away as bastis and almirantes become more available. Ditto for "Darklands" or the blue pums, but they are really rare in the hobby right now.

If price is no object, and you're willing to hunt around, histrionicus is definitely in need of some serious representation in the hobby, but I know next to nothing about the legality of them, save to say that I have seen some for sale at expos, NWFF, etc and the sellers were legit.

Additionally, I think standard lamasi are underpresentated, as are quinquevittatus. And if you're looking for a more "tinc-size" frog, galacs are way less popular than tincs/leucs/azureus, although they are great frogs.
Problems are inevitable. Problems are soluble.
