Default which frog to choose

'sup guys ?
i'm musing on getting a frog.
now i don't want a white's or something that is like that.
i would like something that has a similar shape to a dart frog, without the difficult setup and expensive everything
i would also like to to live well at room temperature or it can be heated by a heat mat.
i would like a frog with nice colours.

any ideas?
thanks

I don't know a lot about phibs so I can only offer these 3 suggestions and not one matches your critera but..............

Ornate horned frog
Fire bellied toads
Tiger Salamander.

Go for the frog that is posted by Buddyboy, colorful one and small, though its noisy but its still the best one for you to choose.

I'm currently trying to find a good home for a frog that I rescued as a newly morphed froglet. He's a Green Cascade Frog (Odorrana(Rana) livida) and is happy to live in a planted viv at room temperature or a paludarium with a small aquarium heater.

It's certainly a rarity and given the fact that it needs plenty of small live foods would make a great way to get an insight into keeping dartfrogs. I reckon it'll grow to around 8cm and need a 60cm viv to avoid bumping his nose.

It actually came in to the country as a tadpole in a batch of tropical fish, so although not stricty CB, it's a calm steady frog for a Ranid. Feeding very well on small crickets and hydei fruit flies and will be much easier to feed once grown on a bit. Let me know if it appeals - I'm more than happy to give him away to someone who'll appreciate him.
