I haven't research this yet but would like to hear more. I assume you can't wave your finger infront of it's face and say "bad frog"Females can eat each other's eggs, but there are a few things you can do to deter this. Bryan
I don't have the tank set up yet. I was just wondering what other people's experiences were. I think I might just get a pair and let them live in the tank. What is considered a "territory area"? a place where a male calls or a frog fends off other frogs?How is the tank planted?
What sight barriers are there?
How many territory areas are in the tank?
Are there areas to hide as well as open areas to search for food?
These questions all determine the number of frogs that can cohabitate the enclosure.
If 3 males all have there own preferred territory, and aren't stressed from competition, the answer could be 4. May only be 2.
You can try, but I'm not sure how effective it will be Anyway, it depends on how inclined the particular frog is to eat eggs, but you do have some control. The easiest way, and really only foolproof way of preventing egg eating after they are laid, is to pull clutches immediately after they are laid and fertilized and rear them artificially. Even some females eat their own eggs, which I've heard can be diet related, so making sure they get sufficient supplements may help. I've never had an issue with it, but if I remember correctly, some people suggest providing multiple laying areas (coco-huts, film canisters, broad leaves, etc.) for multiple females, and I guess the idea is that if each female has a preferred laying site in her own territory, she might not be as inclined to go after another female's eggs. Again, I'm not sure how well it works but it is worth a shot. I just put my leucs together this season (a 2.2) so there was some minor egg eating at first, but I haven't had any issues just pulling the eggs the same day as they are laid and growing them artificially.I haven't research this yet but would like to hear more.

With leucs, in my experience, they are a relatively peaceful community frog, so territoriality is not as big an issue as some other frogs. Territories could mean a few things, including calling spots like you said, but again I find my leucs don't have set territories- they call all over, forage for food all over, hide/ are active all over without any set territory lines. I think if you just give them sufficient areas for each to have its own niche, so good hiding spots, foraging areas, calling/laying sites, etc. for each frog, you should definitely be fine.I don't have the tank set up yet.

Sure, it is a 40 gallon long split, with the leucs having a slightly bigger side than the other part since there would be four leucs and less frogs on the other side. I'm sorry these pictures are so poor, they don't show the depth well at all because I don't have a good enough flash or something I guess, and the glass is foggy.Any chance you could post a pic/link to this tank.
