ScienceDaily (Dec. 12, 2011) — Field work by researcher Fred Kraus from Bishop Museum, Honolulu has found the world's smallest frogs in southeastern New Guinea. This also makes them the world's smallest tetrapods (non-fish vertebrates). The frogs belong to the genus Paedophryne, all of whose species are extremely small, with adults of the two new species -- named Paedophryne dekot and Paedophryne verrucosa -- only 8-9 mm in length. <continued via the link>.

I want some. I'd like to keep about 65 of em in a 120.
I don't know if this was sarcastic, but if not, you should consider we know nothing about proper captive care. This is exactly the attitude that feeds exploitation. I realize I am jumping the gun on this, and I am not really targeting you(quoted), but I feel when things like this are said, it is just counter-productive, even if only in a minute way.

You're right. 5 gallons per any frog. I'll take 24 instead.
O RLY?



Seriously though, without knowing the specific frog's behavior, it's impossible to make a 5G/frog statement... and even then its pretty ambiguous. Good luck putting 24 reticulata in a 120G, even though they are only a few mm bigger than these. You're also forgetting the cube square rule...
