2 in a 10g

Ok, well ive been doing my research and I still have one question. I am planning on setting up a 10 gallon tank with all the fixings

substrate divider
wood all that...

I was hoping to start breeding (not to sell) so I could expand to an additional 10g tank as well as friends that want to get into the hobby as well.

What frogs would be most likely to breed and do best in a 10g? I only want two in the 10g because its not enought room for more than that. The offspring will go into another 10g until they are big enough to move on...

Well, the problem is that most frogs are young and unsexed. Buying two does not give you the best odds at getting a pair. However, for a little more money, you may be able to get a sexed pair. Auratus, tincs, azureus, leucs can all live in a 10 gallon tank, and yes, they could breed for you. If you get them young, usually 2-3 months, you still have a wait until they are mature (around 1 year old). Buying sexed, will reduce that wait. Also, many times the first clutches of eggs go bad.

Yea, I think your best bet is to buy a sexed pair. If your tank was a little bigger and you got the right species you could buy 4 or 5 frogs and one you can identifiy a pair then sell/give the rest of the frogs to your friends that are also interested in the hobby.
