    Default Grey Tree frog enclosure



    Do you think this setup will be enough for 2-3 grey tree frogs? That is a UVB light and the humidity is staying nice and high. There is currently one in there that is smaller than a dime and I have two others about to turn into frogs.

    Hey what size is it? If it's the 12 x 12 x 18" types then no, too small but if it's the 18 x 18 x 24" then you're good for three or more adults

    It's definitely 12x12x18. I have another one that is slightly larger as well, I could always split them up later. I'm still not sure if I will end up with 1, 2, or 3.

    That's really too small for long term housing for even one, the minimum is a 18x18x18" tank for 1-4

    Once they start getting a little bigger I'll have no problem buying a larger setup. Right now the one is smaller than a dime and the other two are still tadpoles.

    If you make their larger tank a live vivarium with plants and soil, it will pay off in the long run. That kind of setup needs to be sanitized constantly to prevent bacterial buildup.

    How would live plants and soil keep bacteria buildup down?

    The nitrogen cycle- breaking down waste, using it as fertilizer.
