Thanks for the info, that calculator is great and I never knew US gallons were different than UK gallons.

The simple calculation I use is this.

(Length x Width x Height)/231

LxWxH in inches. That will give you gallons.

My recommendation for frog 'living space' is TEN 'gallons per frog. Possibly more for a huge group of terribilis, possibly less for a group of small ventrimaculatus.

and THEN the hardscaping comes into play. If you have 'un-usable' sides and background and too much height, then you need to ADD some size to the tank.

have few large plants and hides, and visual barriers ? You'll need to go bigger yet.

get the idea?
