    Re: FBT Vivarium Preparations

    Yeah, they're gonna be staying in their current set up for a few more days, at least. The problem is they're getting between the large water dish and the glass, and getting them out involves draining...

    Re: FBT Vivarium Preparations

    Instead of making a new thread, I figured I'd just use this one instead. Because it's basically the same stuff as before. Except this time I'm gonna do it right! bigapplause

  3. Re: Pro-Tip: Seriously just get crickets

    Almost a month has gone by, and I love my little dudes. They're not really noisy, or very active right now, but they're just so cute. However, I just keep regretting this tank's set up more and more....
  4. Re: Pro-Tip: Seriously just get crickets

    Getting a separate feeding container makes the most sense. I have a small keeper that I use when I need to clean the water tub each week. I could use that. Mostly I'm just relieved they're eating...
  5. Pro-Tip: Seriously just get crickets

    So I've had my three dudes for just over three weeks, and it's been a learning experience. My tank is 65-land, 35-water, and I regret that so much now. They spend so much time in the water. All of...
  6. Feeding New Toads Nightcrawlers? Tong-training?

    I got my three Fire Belly Toads three days ago, and I was wondering how I should go about getting them to eat nightcrawlers, and eat them from feeding tongs. One of them is too skittish to eat right...

    Re: FBT Vivarium Preparations

    I... never considered how hot the lamp would get. Luckily, my lamps (both) have ceramic fixtures, so I'm good there. But a stand is most definitely in my future. Me and hot things do not get along at...

    Re: FBT Vivarium Preparations

    I ordered a 60w CHE with a thermostat and lamp. My tank is at about 61*F today, so, figured it was for the best. Poor dudes. It'll be here Tuesday.

    Now I just have to figure out when these guys...

    Re: FBT Vivarium Preparations

    Thank you very much! I think a ceramic bulb would work best for me--I have a UVB light already, and honestly I'm far more concerned about night temperatures than daytime, and wouldn't want to keep a...

    Re: FBT Vivarium Preparations

    Thank you! That's what I've heard, that it's more dangerous to overheat them than anything, but with how cold it can get, well, I thought'd ask. I'm not worried once winter actually hits, since at...

    Re: FBT Vivarium Preparations

    So, "preparations" is no longer a fitting word, as I am now the proud owner of three Fire Belly Toads. :love_heart: (They're currently hiding around the tank, and get flighty when I peer at them, so,...

    Aaah, sorry for the confusion! It made sense in my head, but, without seeing the tank I understand why "omg there's a gap" could be hard to understand. So, I took pictures.

    Re: FBT Vivarium Preparations

    Hello, me again!

    My vivarium is practically complete. Plants in, substrate in, gravel in. There's been, ah, a couple bumps along the way: making a false bottom with a huge opening like I did was...

    Oh my gosh, I found the egg crate.

    Somehow--somehow--I managed to search our Lowes for two hours and missed them. Goodness. Seriously, if anyone is reading this in the future, or lurking, or...

    Alright, went out shopping today and could not find egg crate. Like, I spent two hours hunting for it and nope. They had other light diffusing things, but, not what I need. So. What's an alternative...

    Re: FBT Vivarium Preparations

    Ooo~, thank you! I might give that a try. Or I'll chicken out and, like, hide it with a plant, or some bark. XD Grey sounds like it'd be the one that'd blend in most easily, although black could work...

    Re: FBT Vivarium Preparations

    That's... an excellent point. I should test that, before I ruin floors, furniture, and tiny toad lives. I think it'll be okay, because it's not very much water, displaced by gravel. But better safe...

    Yes, alas. The Zilla Critter Cages are made with thinner glass than aquariums, so, they can't withstand the pressure from much water. Hence, tupperware. I only noticed after I bought the thing,...
