Default Basti's and water feature

I'm building a new 220 display tank and it'll have a river going through it. Would basti's or pumilio in be ok with a water feature. About 20% of the bottom and only like an inch or two deep with lots of ez inclines to climb out. I could go with a larger species but pumilio are very unique and would be a good display since it's in my living room

You might want to rethink putting Pumilio in your living room. Their call is not the most pleasant, and can be pretty loud. I moved mine into the basement because the dog would go nuts every time they started calling. Don't get me wrong, I love my Pumilio, but not everyone appreciates the racket.
As far as the water feature, I would not see it as an issue if it is easy for them to climb out. Maybe someone with more experience has a different opinion.

I have 3 pumilio tanks in my living room. Doesn't bother me one bit. I have a 75 gallon tank, 20 gallon and 15 gallon. I enjoy hearing them early in the morning and around dusk.

They can be persistent callers, but it's not deafening by any means.

I love my pums call: it seems to me to be always in the summer when I hear their call.

I Have a 180 gallon with a stream in it. I have imitators and they can actually sit in the stream and not get swept away. The river has two pumps of force behind it so you should be okay.

Do not let my post from last night deter you from getting Pumilio. The call can be persistent, but not deafening like mentioned. They are by far my favorite frog that I have, my tired brain might not have conveyed the proper message.

I think this sums up what I was trying to say. Others in the house did not like the call as much as me, weirdos. Look forward to seeing your build, your previous one was impressive.

So do you think just a pair would be ok or how many you think would be ok in a large setup

You can definitely do a larger group in that size tank. Or, just start with a pair and breed yourself a group My favorite part about keeping Pumilio is catching the froglets popping out of the broms.

It would be neat to get a few different colors of bastimentos pumilio and then let them build up with some babies. You'll have all different colors hopping around.

I'm dreaming of the pumilio I could keep in a 220! That would be my Sylvatica tank come September for sure, I have tank envy with my measly 36x18x36 build

Also, I love listening to pums call, they are my favorite frogs. I do think the epips, leucs and phyllobates all have more "jungly" sounding calls. YouTube all the species' calls

I agree. I especially love my Popa and Guarumo call, but the most singing are Solarte, IME. Me and my brother in law have two pairs and our males call all day long. Solarte call is for a shorter period than that of Almirante or Salt Creek, but it is pretty loud for its size, louder than my Salt Creek male for example. Solarte is a tenor, you can say, Almirante a baritone, Popa is a light tenor.
