Hi,

Haha, yeah basically what Randy said. If these are your first dart frogs or if you haven't been keeping dart frogs for long I wouldn't house any other species with your auratus. Once you've kept a few different species of dart frogs for a while and understand their different behavior and needs you could try mixing them but this isn't ideal because almost always one species of frogs care will have to be compromised in order for the other to live well with it. Have a look at www.amphibiancare.com/frogs/communitytank.html for more information. If you do choose to have a mixed species tank in the future only keep frogs from different genuses together like Phyllobates and Dendrobates to prevent the two different species from breeding and provide lots of extra space to prevent fighting. Good luck

:I have two auratus and was wondering what other types of frogs I would be able to add to the enclosure. I have a 55 gallon setup.
