    Hi, I have googled this a bit but have been getting mixed answers, so I decided to ask here. Can glass frogs and dart frogs go Together? I have a 40g tank with 2 dart frogs in it, and i feel since it is so big they would do fine. Anyone have Suggestions? And how much are they Usually? Thanks

    Perhaps the kind folks on Dendroboard can help you with this question. Glass frogs are nocturnal, very loud and significantly larger than dart frogs. I would never mix any species, but that's just me.

    Also, a 40 gallon tank is a very small space.

    Absolutely. I wouldn't want to live my entire life in a dorm-room, but if I had to, I would prefer if my roommate shared similar qualities, or better yet, was a life partner. Have you decided on a particular species of glass frog? They vary in size. I would build another enclosure and house them separately. It gives you a reason to build a new viv

    I wouldn't say a 40 gal is small for dart frogs. Glass frogs are for the most part arboreal so a classic aquarium wouldn't really be good for them I don't think. I think generally speaking most people would recommend never mixing frog species. It's just not really a good idea.

    Ok thanks for your help. I might consider making another Viv. Are glass frogs tree Frogs? And can you put other tree frogs with them? Or is that still Mixing? Thankz

    So do you have to have live trees in the Viv? Or just lots of Logs? Thanks

    No just tall branches and tall growing plants. I think ghostwood is good for that, maybe manzanita. I'm not quite sure.

    Thanks. Can you mix tree frogs? I saw a bunch of tree frogs, and if they can go together I would like to build a Viv for them some time.

    I don't know much about tree frogs. I'd imagine it's the same as dart frogs. Just don't mix them.

    Ok. Because when I bought my dart frogs the guy said you can mix different types but he wouldn't recommend it because they could mix Breed and then nobody wants the babies. So would that be the Same? Thanks

    Just don't mix any frogs. That's the easiest way :)

    A 40 Gallon tank is not small for dartfrogs..40 gallon breeder size is 36" x 18" x 17" 40 long size is 48" x 13" x 17" more then enough space for dart frogs.

    Relative to their natural environment / territory it is small, sorry should have specified that key point. I prefer larger vivariums. I find the majority of North American hobbyists have a much different view on housing requirements compared to Europeans.

    European vivariums are different in style but not all hobbyist in Europe have large vivariums for dart frogs...most Europeans don't have room for large vivariums.
    Average sizes in Europe are 30cmx30cmx30cm to 100cmx50cmx50cm.

    Thank you. That makes more sense. On your website you have different frogs. Do I need separate tanks for every different frog? Even if I don't intend on Breeding? Like dart frog types can but you will get a mix of some type that no one wants, so people don't mix them. But are tree frogs the Same? Thanks
