I used Exo Terra Plantation soil for my substrate... It holds water very well, and gives the plants a great hold of the substrate!

I would go to www.blackjungle.com...they have everything you need to get your tank set up. I would recommend dendro bedding, and terra lite substrate for drainage... they also suggest you dose the bedding with dyna-gro to help the plants thrive. Let me also strongly recommend that you make a false bottom set up. I set my tank up with it first and ended up having to redo it all over again adding the false bottom (just google "false bottom vivarium"). Species D. Auratus, D. Azureus, or D. Leucomelas are great starter frogs. Hope it all goes well Big Grin
You don't want to get your frogs from a Pet Store. There are lots of great vendors to buy from online that specialize in dart frogs. Take your time and do your research first. Good luck!

I use LECA with leaf litter on top - highly recommended!
