Default R. benedicta tank question

Hi guys,

I read on josh-frogs, that R. benedicta ,not as most R.-species, is more surface orientated. So is it best to use a L or H orientated tank for them - what are your experiences?

I'm not a frog expert (at all) but depending on how many you plan on getting, maybe do best of both worlds and get a 29 gal high? That way it's kinda long, and kinda tall. Or if you're going exo-terra/zoo med route, maybe a long one that's at least 18" tall?

I keep my 4.3 benedicta in a tank with size (cm) 100x50x50. They are all over the tank, but so are all my other frogs in theirs...

I want to add that Benedicta are less shy in a bigger tank that contains lots of leaf litter!

I keep my 4 benedicta in a large (and tall) custom viv. It would be somewhere around 28 gals and is 20W X 24H X 18"D. They seem happy and are everywhere from the leaf litter to the highest branch. It has a HUGE bromeliad inside that seems to be benedicta central.
