Exo terra is a fine brand and many many hobbyists use them for dart frogs.

If you are planning to get smaller frogs like thumbnails or even pumilio, then go for the taller tank.

If you want larger heavy bodied frogs, then go for the flatter, low tank.

Just be careful when you order online and have them shipped. I received mine today. 36"x18"x36" and it arrived broken. I'm currently in dispute with the carrier.

Awesome that you are that close and I wish you luck with your setup. If you look around the site you will see several awesome setups using their enclosures.

Also I'm happy to say they have good customer service. The shipping company I ordered from would not do anything since I signed for the package before I noticed the damage but when I contacted Hagen/exoterra they are sending a replacement free of charge.

Most Petco's and Petsmarts have sales sometimes twice a year where they discount exoterra tanks, sometimes over 20%. Inquire at your local big box store.

At any rate, they should be able to order a tank for you and have it delivered quickly to your local store for you to pick up , honoring ANY online coupon or sale price.

Again...ask a manager. If you ask, you will most likely...get.

Interesting they told me they could not get the one I ordered delivered to the store. I wonder if they where just brushing me off. They said I had to order it online and have it shipped to me.

I'd say either size would be fine for whatever dart you choose. When you consider that 10 verts are only 20-21" tall and the small exos are 18" tall, the "shorter" of your two options seem on par with the height of other vivs commonly used to keep thumbnails. The 2' ground space make that one more ideal. I also keep bassleri in the taller of your two options, so large frogs will utilize the taller ones as well.
