Hello All,

I am interested in obtaining frogs for my 29gal. I just finished added plants and all. (Egg Crate, GS/coco/peat background), note I will still be adding hides, monkey ladder, etc..)

I believe I'm stuck on what I should place in this tank... so far it's between Leucs and Galacs as group frogs (4)

I don't think my apartment location will like me having something loud.

1. Is it true banded leucs have a quieter call?
2. What are the differences and similarities between Leucs and Galacs?
3. It is true Leucs have less aggression as a group?
4. Any other frog suggestions?





I would enjoy any suggestions as I'm pretty stuck on what to get. I already have CR Auratus and would like something more bold.

Thanks,
Steve
1.2.0 CR Auratus, "0.0.4 Galacs or Leucs coming soon"

I have both a 100% solid orange galac and a leuc, and I like both of them equally. I'm not sure about calling yet, as neither are old enough. Both are fairly bold IMO, much more bold than my duo of campana auratus. My boldest frogs are my INIBICO variabilis. Very entertaining.

I've not kept Leucs before, but I've really enjoyed my red&black galacs. With lots of leaf litter, they're always active. And I've only ever heard them one time, by accident, and I'm not sure it was really a call or not :)

As i understand Leucomelas will climb a lot & use your back wall, while Galactonotus prefer the ground like Tinctorius.
Those who have Galactonotus - pls correct me if i'm wrong!!!

Thanks everyone for the input. Would Galacs utilize my ledges and climb on my background. Both seem to be awesome frogs :)

my galacts love to climb, super bold and are AWESOME to watch as they stalk their food... and they do a lot of stalking, very hearty eaters, and grow like a weed. and its great to see more people are looking at these frogs!

Great thanks for the replies. I will go ahead and plan for Yellow Galacs : ). Can't wait to receive them. I'll provide updated pics.

Thanks this was my second Vivarium design. My first Exo was alright but I didn't utilize ledges as much.
