I had read that Male combat was uncommon in this species and Male heavy groups were best. I didn't get good odds with a group of 4 juveniles that ended up being 4.0 and here we are 6 months later with 4 calling males and occasionally wrestling in 3 different broms around the viv. I'm not too concerned as it seems to be different frogs each time and I've only seen it three times and everyone still looks and acts healthy .

If this keeps on happening one Male will be the dominant one and the others could get real shy or worse. I would sell or trade at least 2 males and get a female.
