So, I am really getting interested in getting a Poison Dart Frog. However, I don't want to go buy a whole new tank. I have an extra 15 gallon terrarium (24"lengthx12"widthx12"hight) that I want to use for Darts. I was wondering if there are any species that would allow me to have several of them in the tank.

Thanks for any and all help!

Sorry, for the double post, but it won't let me edit.

I really want some thumbnails, but I don't know which ones are good for beginners or where to buy them as I can't find any sites that sell them.

If you tip that up on end, and make a vertical front for it, you could put a couple thumbnails in there. I've seen several of the sponsors with thumbs for sale. Here's a link to the sponsor page:

Sponsor Classifieds - Dendroboard

Also look at the general classifieds. :D
Huge noob question, but is there a thread or somewhere on making a vertical front? I have no idea how to go about that.

There are! Look through the construction threads. Also, several of the vendors sell them pre-made. Off the top of my head:

New England Herpetoculture - Home
Jungle Box Online - Frogs, Vivarium Supplies, Feeders and Tropical Plants

There might be others. If they don't routinely make the size you need, I bet you could talk to them about the dimensions you need and they can custom make it.
Ooooooooo. The Jungle Box makes then exact right one!
So how many thumbnails could I fit in it do you think?

Oh, I don't know. 2 or 3? Check out the care sheets and also this section: Ranitomeya - Dendroboard

Some say that imitators are monogamous. Others keep in groups of 3 or so. Vents are said to be able to be kept in groups. Just do a lot of looking around on the threads. I think you should get as much info as you can, and, then decide for yourself how you want to do it.

Thanks all for the help, but the more I've been thinking about it the more I think I want to get a non-thumbnail frog.
Do you guys think that if I got D. Azureus or D. Tinctorius I should put the tank vertically, or have it horizontally? Also, could I get away with three of them?

Thanks!

horizontally. tinctorius are terrestrial darts

d. azureus is an old name thats no longer considered valid. they are now considered d. tinctorius 'azureus'

3 would e rough in a tank that size. tincs are pretty territorial, females especially. i'd stick with a pair.

Are there any arboreal PDFs for novice keepers? Having a smaller footprint would be easier for me to fit into my house.

well, there is the D. leucomelas. semi-terrestrial. Does hang around on the ground alot but they also climb on the walls of the tank. Great frog for novice keepers. also, the male has a pleasent call. Good luck

not a good choice for a 15 vert. the footprint is too small.
