I'm getting ready to order my first set of frogs, specifically Leucs, in the next couple of months. I've got a 10g set up( http://photos.yahoo.com/jbart127 ) ready for them to go into. My question is how may can/should I put in there. I would like to get at least a pair, but was thinking about a trio. Is a 10g going to be enough for more than one or am I better off with a smaller (non thumb) species. I looking for a good "beginner" frog that is bold and has a nice call. I've thought about P. Terribilis but those will be my next adventure for a 30g long that I have laying around :wink: Any suggestion and comments would be greatly appriciated. Sorry for rambling

Congrats! Welcome to the addiction. :D

The general rule of thumb is 5 gallons per frog, more if you can spare. If you want to get a trio, spring for a 20 gallon long. I've seen them for around $20 US at the pet stores.

I agree. The general rule is 5 gallons per frog, however you will have plenty of time to get a bigger one. They won't get to full size for about 5 months or so. Some people prefer to keep new froglets in even smaller containers for a month or so. They can find food easier and are easier to monitor. My leuc was very shy for the first few months, so don't be alarmed if you do put them in the 10 and they hide a lot. They will get bolder as they age.

Enjoy your new frogs

Is a 25gal high like a 15gal high or a 29gal high as in is it very high?

Leucs like to climb, but also like some ground space. I would say a 29gal, or a 20gal high for a couple. I have mine 3 in a 20gal high, and to be honest I think it is a little small for them. I plan to move them to a 29gal soon. Mine do like to climb, but also spend a lot of time on the ground. Not like my imitators that almost never go on the ground.
