Default Which Frog?

Hello!
I'm relatively new to the hobby, and I've been wondering about witch species would be the best for my tank. At the moment, its not all the way set up, but its a 29 gallon tank and I'm hoping to keep three or four frogs in it. The three frogs that I like the most for my vivarium are Dendrobates leucomelas, Phyllobates Bicolor, and Epipedobates anthonyi. I would welcome any advice from people who have kept any of these three species.

Welcome to the forum. I think your size tank would be fine for a small group of luecs or anthonyi. You could put a pair of bicolors in there but I think more than that would be pushing it. Bicolors are primarily terrestrial and appreciate a little more floor space. The dimensions of a standard 29 lend itself more to the other two species.

If I had a 29g viv, I'd put leucs in it.

I started with a pair of leucs, and then over a period of time I got hooked on frogs -- I think it took about three days.

Now I really like thumbnails, and keeping leucs gave me the confidence to try frogs that are just a little less forgiving. And my leucs are still really enjoyable.

Leucs or anthonyi…..If you will keep them in your normal livingroom or where you spend a lot of time, Leucs for sure. Leucs are the bolder ones and not as voicy as anthonyi.

They are both pretty loud. Luecs are probably just as loud, just not as shrill and don't call as often. If they are kept in the living room you will definitely know they are there. They will constantly remind you with their songs.

Personally I find the leucs call not disturbing at all. But the anthonyi as very annoying. Mabe it is the higher pitch or just that they sing so much more.

So, it might all comes to preferences then, not volume
