Hi.... I am in the process of moving my two azureus into a 29 gallon falsebottom... It appears that my two unknown have grown up into two male azureus. I have read many times that it would be best to keep only one male and one female azureus in a tank .But since it seems the females are really the agressive ones couldn't I put a little girl in with my two boys safely? Would the males start to compete with each other? These are my first frogs but I am pretty confident that there isn't any bullying going on right now. I just don't have the space for another tank and I am attatched to both of them....would 29 be enough room? Thanks in advance for any help....

If I am correct, male azureus are harder to come by (find for sale) than females. It should be very easy to trade a male for a female from a fellow frogger.

I didn't realize that males were harder to find...but if I were to try to find two females I assume that I would have to keep the pairs seperate? right? The females couldn't live together....since these are my first I have to go on what I have heard... is this true? They will bully each other and wrestle which I assume stresses them out but they don't technically kill each other or do they? What are signs of agression other than wrestling. I have seen one of my boys hop on the other one but move off of him quickly - more like he was just climbing over him to get where he headed. Is that agression? Sorry for so many questions but I really appreciate the responses!

I've seen this happen with my juvenile azureus. It doesn't look like fighting to me, but that's only because it happens quickly and doesn't continue.

I have 3 males and 1 female in a large tank and they all seem to get along, they just started laying eggs a couple of months ago, so I might take out a male.

Thanks for the input everyone - I think I will try to find a female and put three in a tank. If it isn't woking out I should know within a few weeks I imagine. And then I guess I will be doubling my collection! I am assuming that I will know if anyone is stressed by their behavior. Right now my boys are very bold and even come out when I approach the tank (not cause of any warm fuzzy feelings, I know. They have figured out that I bring the food) so if they were stressed I imagine one may start hiding and drop weight. Are their any other indicators that I should watch for ??
