: It is indeed very tempting to mix, like a garden flower border. I've been told by a couple of different breeders that it is possible to mix species in a large enough tank, provided they have totally different territorial requirements-- i.e. imitators or vents with auratus. However, I was glad I didn't do it. My blue auratus are terribly shy and needed an entirely different set up from the other frogs in order to feel comfortable enough to come out and about. I had to do some changes and experiment with that! I think if I'd combined them with the imitators, or God forbid, the wonderfully bold, brazen, pig-out galacs, they might never have come out of hiding and simply died of starvation in their holes. I think most of us on this forum are "non-mixers." I do have some strictly aquatic African dwarfs in the aquarium section of a paludarium with the galacs, where never the twain shall meet, but that doesn't count as mixing dart frogs together.

I agree-- more auratus--and of the same color morph, as well. Start planning another vivarium for any others. It's an infectious disease-- I'm currently in the process of moving my kids out to eat grubs and berries in the woods so I'll have more room for frogs.
