Default Stocking a 75g tank

Hey everyone! I'm setting up my 75g tank and am just looking for suggestions on how many frogs is a decent amount for this tank.

I know there is no set answer but would love some anecdotes. Im leaning towards a group of around 5-7 frogs. Possibly thinking Vittatus or Leucomelas, but have considered Anthonii and Azeurus too. I know all of those seem to do well in larger groups. Any other suggestions on a good frog for this tank? Small by of background, I had a bunch of frogs in the past but have been out of the hobby for a few years and am jumping back in. So I do have experience but have been out for a bit.

Most frogs species do best in pairs, not in groups. Tinctorius azureus is always best kept in pairs just like any other Tinctorius since they can be very agressieve to the same sex frogs, no idea where you found information that says otherwise?

75g is also not big enough for any species that would do ok in group. I think it's a good sized small tank to start with, but it's not a big tank.

I misread the dimensions for 75g. A group of max 5 Phyllobates or Anthonyi would work.

You could do a group of 5 or so Dendrobates leucomelas or Epipedobates anthonyi or Phyllobates vittatus in that size of a tank. If it were me, I'd go with the vittatus :-)

Hahaha was about to say, a 75 is no small tank! The things 4 feet long

I'm keen to the Vittatus. I have always found their colors very pretty and they have a nice call. Maybe I will just go that route after all.

It not that big either, knowing how much territory the frogs have or require insitu

I think tank size get heavely overestimated all the time.
We always talk about max a few feet, while all frogs easely hop this distance in just a few seconds.
