You're welcome Silver00. take good care of him and keep us updated.Okay....it's come a long way since I messed up and bought him without research three weeks ago. If you are doing your research before you purchase a pacman. I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend the care guide available on this site. Thread: Frog Forum - Pacman and Horned Frogs - Ceratophrys - Care and Breeding
30G Tank(was old fish tank coverted) - Too much
Stand - Custom built
^ I converted them because I already had them and good quality. To make it easy I have around $300 invested just in tank and stand.
Zoo Med Reptifogger - $60 - Petsmart
Zoo Med Hygrotherm - $100 - Petsmart
Coconut Fiber Substrate - $7 set of 3 bricks. I bought 3 sets as its hard to come by here(cheaply) Petsmart wanted $7 for ONE brick so price around. I got mine at Pet Supplies Plus.
Ornaments - $40(I have another log, but the crickets hide from him and being young he needs them as much as he can eat them) - Petsmart
Water absorb packets(pretty neat keeps crickets alive and the one in tank keeps them off Screech) - $4 for 6 - Pet Supplies Plus
10-20G UTH - $20
20-30G UTH - $40
^^ Do some research on your tank and lid setup. I have a mesh lid with alum. foil over it except at the lights and heaters full blast(regulated) and lamp it will not go above 82-84*
Cricket Feeder - $15
Cricket Cage w/ tubes - $15
Manual Temp/Humidity gauge - $12
Rheostat - $25(this was my means of regulating the UTH, and as the Hygrotherm has ONE connection I kept it so it controls both heaters)
Programable Surge Protector - $30
Multivitamin Dust - $7
Calcium Dust - $7
Lamp Dome - $50
50w Heat Lamp - $8
40w Red Heat Lamp(emergencies only) - $8
This is also not counting the moss, cypress bedding and other mistakes I made for not doing my research. That was probably around $75 bucks there wasted.
12Day/12Night setup programmed in my surge protector for 9a-9p 7 days a week
84* Day temp with a drop of 6* to 78* for night
80% humidity with fogger set on minimum and a tolerance of 75%
Tank takes care of itself now just gotta monitor it. All I have to do is feed Screech and make sure the water bottle for the fogger is full.
Now do not look at my prices and jaw drop. I kept a good bit of it as I could not return it for a cheaper method as I failed to do my research and it cost my wallet. But Screech is happy and healthy. He eats 2-4 crickets in a 24 hour period. Mostly averaging just 3 though. Fed one at a time.
Screech just literally ate two crickets back to back two minutes before this picture.
Thanks for everyone that helped me with my mistakes. Especially Grifthegreat...thanks a lot. I used cell phone as my camcorder and camera are busy charging.
