    Default Tank Size

    Hi all, new to the forum and new to dart frogs. I have been doing some research as to their care and proper environment but I am having a little trouble with choosing a good tank size. Most likely I will be keeping D. auratus, probably a pair at first. Some people recommend a 10 gallon tank for them, but I also see that larger tanks are recommended. I currently have an empty 30 gallon tank on hand, but I am a little worried that it may be too big for just the pair.

    What would you do in this situation?

    My rule of thumb is this:

    If the enclosure you use is smaller than South America then it isn't too big.

    I have 4 little tiny R. amazonica in a 75 gallon enclosure. All 4 of these don't add up to the mass of 2 auratus.

    Welcome to the forum and we are glad to have you.

    I'd put them in the 30 gallon.

    I would reccomend the 30-gallon as auratus can be terratorial.

    Thanks for the replies! It's settled then, I'm going to use the 30 gallon. This gives me more space to landscape anyways
