  1. Re: New Member looking for input on enclosure design for WTF

    Looks good. You may need to tweak your misting times a bit depending on how much air movement you have. Watch your drainage layer. If it fills up you are misting too much. Other than that spot on!

    Re: Gray tree frog not eating...

    Can you provide a detailed description of the old enclosure and the new one? Also, I would strongly recommend against cohabitating different species. I would place your frog back into it’s original...

    Re: Lighting questions

    A Zoo Med reptisun 5.0 would probably be the way to go. Bear in mind though, you will have to change the bulb every six months. (As you would with any UVB light). There are also some variables such...
  4. Re: How to properly pick up my white tree frog without hurting her

    I use a 16 oz deli cup. I hold the cup over and in front of the frog then gently nudge it in from behind. Doing it this way avoids any unwanted leaps to freedom so to speak. I put the cup back in the...
  5. Re: I haven't seen my pacman frog for about 4-5 days.

    A ten gallon tank is a bit large for a froglet the size of a quarter. You may want to switch to a smaller size or put the frog in a smaller enclosure within the 10 gallon. Since you are having issues...
  6. Re: I haven't seen my pacman frog for about 4-5 days.

    Can you describe the enclosure in detail? (Look at the “trouble in the enclosure” sticky for reference)
  7. Re: Help! I dropped my pixie frog about 3 feet! Should I be worried

    It is a definite possibility but over the past 25 years years I have had the occasional frog sustain an accidental fall without ill effects. Bear in mind though a smaller frog will tolerate a short...

    Re: Baby Pac-Man frog wonít eat?

    All in in all your set up sounds good but a few things stick out. A full 3 inches of substrate is in my opinion a lot. You shouldnít have to dig your frog out constantly to check on it. For...

    Re: Baby Pac-Man frog wonít eat?

    Can you describe the enclosure in detail? A description helps (See the “trouble in the enclosure” sticky).

    Nonetheless, a few suggestions come to mind. Most importantly I’d advise you to avoid...

    Re: A look ahead to 2020

    Lol thank you for the kind words. Iíd like some more content about UVB actually. A while back I believe you had noted that pointed caudal bones may result from a lack of UVB. Low and behold my L....

    Re: Fungus gnats

    The simple answer is to let everything dry out and I’d definitely toss the houseplant. You may have to change your substrate a few times as well and /or move your terrariums to another location in...

    Very cool. I know we disagree from time to time lol but I’m glad for you.
  13. Re: Separating flightless fruit flies from dust?

    Which species are you feeding?
  14. Re: whites tree frog and red eye tree frog

    I recommend keeping them separate. Mixing species can cause stress and competition for resources within the vivarium. Also, whites are much more aggressive feeders and may make a meal of your RETF.

    Re: Mozambique Rain Frog

    This species also became a bit of a YouTube sensation so I understand it’s popularity and interest in it.
  16. Re: New Red Eyed tree frog with grey spots

    Good that does look like an improvement. Another possibility is that this individual was imported and during importation it sustained some injuries that are are now healing. I’m glad for you though...
  17. Re: New Red Eyed tree frog with grey spots

    Hmm I can’t say for sure

    This does look very much like oodinium, and if so a vet trip is in order. In the meantime I recommend continuing your quarantine and consulting with a good exotics vet....
  18. Re: New Red Eyed tree frog with grey spots

    I recommend posting a picture. Oodinium is more prevalent in fully aquatic species. Also I’d advise against soaking your frog in distilled water. It serves no practical purpose and the lack of...

    Re: Water type for Whites tree frogs

    If you are using a misting system such as a mist king, distilled or RO is the way to go. The reason being that it will prolong the lifespan of the equipment and you won’t get hard water spots on the...

    Re: Mozambique Rain Frog

    This species in only sporadically available in the US and to my knowledge they are all wild caught. If this is your first foray into keeping frogs I would recommend starting with a different more...
  21. Re: new pacman frog! wanted to verify my setup :)

    Welcome to the forum. Here is some insight.
    1. For starters your substrate looks way too dry. Damp substrate with a shallow dish is pretty much a necessity for this species.
    2. I don’t like UTHs...

    I wouldn’t beat yourself up over it. Sometimes unexpected deaths happen despite all our best efforts. I can’t comment on the previous two frogs without more information(such as husbandry and...

    Re: Cricket demand

    The key to keeping crickets alive is removing any that die as soon as possible. Once a few die and begin to rot it’s long until more do the same. Keep them in as large a container as you can (large...
