Different frogs need different amounts of space, what if we gave each frog a minimum "recommended" size ...

examples...

Ranitomeya (Thumbnails) 80 square inches per frog

Oophaga 100 square inches per frog

D. Auratus, D. Leucomelas 150 square inches per frog

D. Tinctorius 200 square inches per frog

Phyllobates Bi/Terr. 250 square inches per frog

Area that would be counted would be the bottom of the tank and half of the background

(assuming that the background was planted/clay/foam).

That means a

12x12x18 would have 252 square inches to work with

18x18x24 would have 540

24x18x24 would have 648

18x36x24 would have 1080

10 gallon (vert) would have 320

10 gallon (horiz) would have 350

20L (vert) would have 324

20L (horiz) would have 540

20H (vert) would have 384

20H (horiz) would have 480

I know some of these numbers would need to be tweeked and other types of frogs would need to be added but I am interested in hearing thoughts of other frog keepers.

Any thoughts? (other than I am weird)
