Are these your first frogs? What size tank have you got for them?

In that case, I voted for leucs. They are awesome frogs, get along great in groups and have a really nice call.

Good luck deciding!

Care and enclosure requirements are VERY similar for both species.....some differences:

Leucs:

1. Loud call
2. Can be more of a "group" frog
3. Climb a bit more at adult age
4. Females not as agressive as Azureus

For a 40 gallon breeder - you could have a 3.1 or 2.2 group of leucs. I had 2.2 azureus in a moderately planted 40 breeder viv and the 2 females would wrestle a lot and breeding was not optimal due to the aggression.

Azureus:

1. Very quite call
2. Better kept in pairs of 1.1
3. Females are aggressive towards each other

Thanks phil, im aware of most of this yet still stumped. If i go with azureus i would most likely buy a proven/probable pair. If i go with leucomelas ill probably buy 3-4 leucomela froglets.

Still stumped though, would appreciate more votes and if you have an opinon on why you like that one better i would be glad to hear about it =)

thanks!

I love Tincs and have a LOT, but if I could only keep one viv full of frogs out of all the frogs I have know, it would be our Leucs.

They're more active than Tincs.

They use the whole tanks on a regular basis. Yep, Tincs climb, but not as much as Leucs.

The call...It's very nice!

They are very active even after lights out. Our Tincs generally find a place to bed down before the lights go off.

You can spot them anywhere even when they're under cover. They tend to take cover, but have their noses sticking out. They don't want to miss anything.

They're communal.

Our Leucs sleep at the top of the tank. The lights come on and it's 1,2,3,4,5, yep, there they are.

Made up your mind yet? :mrgreen:

Haha!

One more thing. If you have a group and they're courting, it can go on ALL day long. Tincs get right down to it. lol

Another BIG factor....who do you know that's close-by and a breeder ?

SUPPORT your local breeders. They will GIVE you stuff and drop dead prices. Not to mention, it's a great way to make new and local friends.

lol!

The only local breeder i know of is Demonic. He primarily works with thumbnail species and i am very happy with the 3 i got from him. I plan to get a couple more later on =)

As for larger species i am not familiar with any breeders are here. But there is the wheaton expo and demonic had some kind words about the guy there. I figured i would go to him. He had leuc and azureus last time i was there =)
