    Re: Keeping Temps and ligjting

    I'd really recommend checking out Philippe de Vosjoli's book on these frogs, it's all you'll need to know how to raise a healthy pacman. Other books and caresheets I've found seem less accurate

    Re: Keeping Temps and ligjting

    Keep them between 22-29.4C, with the daytime temps no cooler than 26C. They definitely need it warm and prolonged to the temperatures you have been recommended would cause problems.

    I would not...
  3. Re: Good feeders for toads and frogs? Superworms? Nightcrawlers?

    cane toads are largely invasive, so collecting them is probably better than breeding more, as there's enough already and not everyone probably fancies them, more of an acquired taste. They also...
  4. Re: Good feeders for toads and frogs? Superworms? Nightcrawlers?

    They look bold in the wild and can be in captivity, but the stress of being confined and taken from the wild can sometimes be too much. I'd never buy a WC again, just not worth it. Pacmans are...

    Re: HELP! My frog is bloated

    It's probably a trip to the vet if there's any chance of it recovering, I would say

    20C is fine as a background temp, but would be better to have a warmer spot available during the day for...
  6. Re: Good feeders for toads and frogs? Superworms? Nightcrawlers?

    Crickets won't die if you keep them around 25C, using a heat pad under there tank and feed them well.They are bad for escaping when young but they're fine as adults. I need to order my livefood...

    Re: HELP! My frog is bloated

    This can be caused from absorbing toxins or waste, being exposed to temperatures too cool or warm and heart or kidney problems. From keeping him at 20C, this could possiblly do this as this is quite...

    Re: HELP! My frog is bloated

    I would take the frog out of a mixed tank and quarantine it. Try raising temperatures slightly higher to see if that helps. Also re look into the animals you keep with it, their suitability for...
  9. Re: Good feeders for toads and frogs? Superworms? Nightcrawlers?

    Locusts, crickets and roaches are the best staple diet, though, due to them being easiest to gut load or dust and being not too hard to digest. I doubt many people like dealing with these insects,...

    Re: New Pacman Frog.. Help!

    You get all sorts of colours of pacman frogs, they're not limited to just green; so don't worry - you probably just have a brown pacman frog. I have seen some changes in colours from shedding, light...
  11. Re: Should a Pixie Frog have a Heat Pad, Heat lamp, or Both?

    Both have pros and cons, really and you can try what works for you. Before using any heat source try to get your room temp as close to their range as possible.

    If you use a heat mat as your heat...

    Re: color of white's tree frogs?

    try a basking spot of 85F, moderate-not-high humidity and bright lighting with UVB, maybe a 7-10% output as your viv is pretty high. not enough light and heat can cause frogs to change colour, darker...
  13. Re: Baby pixie frog swallowing coconut fibers, will it be okay?

    I have heard of it causing impactions but if you keep it warm enough and it's not eating too much then it should be fine. I always feed mine with tongs or in a bare bottom enclosure to be safe and it...
  14. Re: Is it safe for a frog to eat live pinkies?

    Shouldn't have germs, but i would feed frozen because of dangers to your frog. Not until the adult stage at least, when pixies get tough ridges on their skin.

    Re: Frog who rarely ever eats

    Probably temps too cool, 26-28C is better and down to 22-24C at night. Heat mats are contact heaters and when placed on the wall they just heat the glass and not the frog, air temperature or...

    Re: Recommended resources...?

    Hey Axel

    Most mags i've read have either been hit or miss and mostly a miss in terms of quality and they often leave out a lot of info out to fit into a small article. I would just go with books...
  17. Re: A little worried about the temperature of my tank

    i think the screen top might be enough, hoods are really bad for keeping in too much heat. They do lay eggs at warm temps, but you don't want anything above 82F, that's the absolute maximum...
  18. Re: A little worried about the temperature of my tank

    i forgot to mention, blinds closed and windows open should help
  19. Re: A little worried about the temperature of my tank

    Ambient/water temps above 82F will probably kill them and should be 72-75F to 78F max. if hot days are infrequent, placing the tank on the floor, turning off filters and lights and adding cool...

    Re: Need help with setup!!!

    To get the heat you need, around 25-40w incandescent heat bulb direct at a branch should do. Check temps to make sure they're right with a digital thermometer. You can use a thermostat to control...
