Whatever you decide to keep if it's a tropical/woodland species I'd go for live plants which really are a lot easier to work with than you'd think and will give you something else to look at and work with while the inhabitants aren't out doing their thing.
Yep another nice idea, thanks
First thought though is how many of these guys can you house together? And secondly if a group numerous enough to fill the tank is possible it could cost??? In livestock. Although obviously the relatively huge space would be excellent for the frogs I might not get to see them often. Most of the setups ive seen on here look tiny in comparison.
