    Re: White Flies

    They also might be fungus gnats, which breed in wet soil and often come in on houseplants. I had that problem with my toad's enclosure; I had to pull all her soil out and replace it. I baked the soil...

    Re: Fungus gnats

    I appreciate it! Sorry I was unclear; the sundew isn't going to go in with her. It's going to be in its own pot in the frog room, providing passive protection to all the tanks. I know that there are...

    Awesome! Yeah I've had nothing but good experiences from them, and their customer support is apparently top-notch too, though I've never had to contact them about anything. I don't have the patience...

    Re: New Huge Cane Toad

    Awesome to hear your girl is finally eating on her own. It's interesting that she only wanted to eat small bugs. If you need to order bugs online, I have had great experiences with Dubiaroaches.com....

    Re: Fungus gnats

    I have a 40B with a cane toad (Rhinella Marina) as well as 2 empty terrariums (10g, 20 long). I moved the empty terrariums to the very cold basement to dry out, and I replaced the substrate in the 40...

    Re: Cane toad won't leave water area

    Thank you! She's doing great! Growing like a weed; she's about 5-5.5 inches SVL now and getting bolder by the day. I also got confirmation (using this scientific article about sexing cane toads by...

    Fungus gnats

    Hello! I brought in a houseplant that apparently had some fungus gnats in the substrate, and they've spread to my terrestrial frog enclosures. How do I get rid of them without harming my frogs? Is it...

    Re: Tomato frog listless, swollen legs

    Sad news. Blood tests showed liver failure. I could've had him admitted inpatient, but the prognosis was grim even with hardcore intensive treatment and he would've suffered the whole time. I had to...

    Re: Tomato frog listless, swollen legs

    Got a vet appointment for 3PM today. He's in a critter keeper on a wet paper towel substrate for quarantine, and I'm going to completely gut and redo his enclosure. Thanks folks.

    Re: Cane toad won't leave water area

    Never got an answer but I'll post an update-- turns out she was only hiding in the water when I was around. She isn't sick, she was just terrified of me and hiding in the water. I've been leaving her...

    Re: Bufo Alvarius Diet Question

    I've never had problems with nightcrawlers when feeding any of my critters. IME crickets seem to be more prone to parasites than nightcrawlers are.

    Why not work with her and offer nightcrawlers? Nightcrawlers are a fantastic staple, highly nutritious, and chitin-free.

    Cane toad won't leave water area

    I just got a new cane toad two days ago. I was hoping for a CB one but she's actually WC from Florida where they're invasive. She had a tick on her when she arrived (promptly removed) and no other...

    Re: Grow a Frog | African Clawed Frog

    That's a cute little African Clawed Frog! I'd say he's too little to tell the sex as of yet, but when he gets a bit older, if he starts developing black patches on his forearms and singing, you've...

    Bit of a long shot since I live in the US. Is anyone breeding these guys? Could I get them imported without spending hundreds of dollars?

    I've had good success dusting feeders, but there's no harm in gutloading as well, as long as you keep the animal protein down like you said. I feed my dubias a variety of fresh veggies as well as a...

    Probably not MBD then assuming your toads eat the feeders right away. I'm assuming you're using dechlorinator for the water you use when you mist the enclosure? Letting it sit out lets chlorine gas...

    Could be early-stage MBD. Are you dusting your feeders with calcium and vitamins?

    Hello! I'm Axqu and I like frogs.

    I've liked them all my life, and I'm so happy I get to have them in my adult life. I tend to favor large terrestrial frogs and big aquatic frogs, although I'll probably get at least one tree frog...

    Are you in a place where Dubia roaches are legal? They're slow-moving, they don't jump, they're easy to culture and gutload, and they're more nutritionally complete/less chitinous than crickets. If...
