    Default 20 Gallon

    I just got a 20 gallon for Lola! Any tips on moving the toad into it without her dieing of shock from the change of habitat?

    Don't think a healthy toad will die of shock over a tank transfer. Set-up the new tank (substrate etc.), move decor to it (clean if needed) and then transfer toad. You do not need to grab her if undesired. Can use a small clean (no chemicals) pail or plastik container; place in toad's front and coax her butt in. Then cover with hand and place container on new tank, letting frog get out at will. Avoid feeding toad first couple of days and let it set-in... done !
    Remember to take care of the enclosure and it will take care of your frog !​

    Then I think you will have no problems just make sure the temp and humidity are the same as the old setup.
    you might want to cover the sides for a while to help lessen the stress on the little one.

    Please post pictures I know I speak for most here WE LOVE PICTURES!!!!

    She'll be fine. A healthy toad doesn't have moving issues, they really don't have any issues as all when it comes to changing up their tank. I rearrange their viv every 6 months or so for a change of pace. Plus I find all the free running roaches that have escaped the dish. Pretty much keep their water dish clean and the food comin' and their happy.

    Well, the toad is still alive today but her cafe is trampled from when she was hopping around when eceryone was asleep, and shes making this really annoying tapping sound while shes burrowing. It sounds like a faint hammer.
