    At first glance, the water is an issue. Any tap water must be treated with a dechlorinator such as reptisafe by zoomed or aquatize by exoterra. Three can be purchased at most pretty shops. Bottled spring water can be used as an alternative and can be purchased in grocery stores or pharmacies. Distilled water can be used for misting to avoid mineral deposits on the glass. But do not use distilled in soaking dishes. Water dishes should have water changed daily. I hope this helps to begin. I do not keep pacman frogs but I figured I would give you a husbandry tip while I was here. You may want to start your own thread with photos if no one else stops by. Hope this helps! Good luck and welcome to ff.

    Everything seems fine except the water. If it is not dechlorinated it will causebthe frog to Tox Out. Toxing Out Syndrome is essentially a disease caused by toxins or chemical being absorbed by the frog through the skin poisoning the frog. Also you must be sure the water is shallow. No deeper than up to the frog's chin and the dish must be easy for the frog to get in and out of. These frogs are terrestrial and are not good swimmers.

    Get him a little warmer too. Around 27° during the day and it can drop a couple degrees at night. Humidity needs to be between 75% and 80%.

    You can use the 20x20 and leave it on constantly.

    You can only use bottled water if it is natural spring water. Filtered bottled water must be treated with a water dechlorinating agent like Prime or ReptaSafe and the same goes for tap water. This must also be used to treat any water you use for the frog including moistening the substrate, misting, and water dish.

    Raise the humidity to 80%. Also raise his temp up to 28°.

    My Pacman could be in trouble!
    I have only had Norman for 2 days and I think he might be in trouble. First day I got him home he ate 2 crickets and settled down in his moss. 2nd day he ate another cricket but decided to swallow some orchid bark at the same time. It was a fair sized chunk so today I removed him, cut the moss into small pieces and replaced the orchid bark with coconut fibre. I put him back in his home gave him a cricket and waxworm but he's ignoring them and has totally buried himself in moss. I will be gutted if I lose him so soon, he's a green horned.
    10 gallon tank
    80 degrees
    80-85% humidity
    trimmed live moss.
    orchid bark now replaced with coconut fibre.
    misting and water bowl/ spring water.
    dusted crix and the occasional waxworm.
    artificial plants.
    3d back wall.
