if you kept more than one, they would have to be the exact same size, they eat anything and everything that moves, including each other. they are more easily kept by themselves though. if you wanted to keep more than one of them, your best bet would be to divide the tank in half, but as they get bigger, you would need to get another tank.

I wouldn't put more than one in a 15 myself.

Do not keep 2 of any of the Ceratophrys frogs together, they will try to eat each other when small, and there's no point in risking it when aquariums don't cost much.
It seems like we're getting a lot of people who get a tank and try to figure out what to put in it lately, you should decide what you want to get then get a tank that's appropriate for it.

i agree, you should figure out what frogs you want to keep, and then aquire the necessary tank from there, not the other way around. i have always keep horned frogs seperate, but i have heard of people keeping them together. i dont know to what degree of success these people have had...

I think it's better to have the tank before the animal since you can get it ready before hand.

I really agree with only haveing one though. These really aren't frogs that live in a "community" or socially in a tank.

yeah you should always have the tank first but you should buy the tank based on what will go in it

ditto. I've made impulse buys before, and it's such a pain. Decide what you want; then buy a tank and set it up, and make sure everythings to spec's (like lighting, heatling, humidity etc.) before you put your frogs into it. it just goes so much smoother that way.

But sometimes you just have that odd tank you were given, or is now empty,etc. So not to make the assumption they just went out and bought a tank.

Oh sorry I misread. I thought people were talking about getting an animal before a tank, my bad.

Anyway, getting the tank has the advantage of setting up everything all nice before your animal destroys it.
