Expensive is synonymous with darts :)

In all seriousness though, you say Leucs as in pleural and that means you're going to get people posting about how that tank is probably not appropriate for multiples of that species.

Yeh've bin warned :)

Good luck with the first viv and welcome to the hobby!

Definitely not true. Have you ever been in the reef hobby? ... :eek:

Anyways, using just one of those species will be fine, as long as they can reproduce well enough in the vivarium. Make sure to seed with springs too.

I like a combo of species. Better chance one species will really take hold and thrive in your conditions

Variety is the spice of life. I love steak, but if I ate it three times a day, day in and day out, pretty soon I would be craving anything else...even Spam!
Different bugs will give your frogs different things to hunt for, different favorites, and, as Frogparty mentioned, more of a chance for a couple of them to get well established in.
Luecs are a great choice for a first frog, and while they are a good group frog, your viv is a little small. Don't try to stick too many in there. Preferable just a pair.

When I asked about thumbnails earlier, I misread the title, I thought it said 10 gal vert.

What about for Clown Tree Frogs, I know they won't hunt them and I made a 30 vertical tank would it be wise to seed with isos, too just to cycle the tank or will they get out of hand because nothing is eating them

Shouldn't hurt to try. If they get too out of hand, just put in some veggie traps and pull the extra isos out.

Yeah I wasn't sure since I'm pretty sure the CTF wouldn't hunt through the leaf litter for them but who knows maybe they will

If they get out of hand you can start selling them. From what I can tell there's a pretty big market for bugs around here. Just make sure that if you do, let people know that they came from an established viv and not from a culture.

As for the OP's question, I agree with the rest. The more variety the better.
