    Default Smallest tank for a frog?

    I was wondering what frog that is "easy" to take care of and can be in a small environment like the exo terra nano. i want to have a little frog setup or any cool reptile on my desk because i spend a lot of time on my computer so why not.

    Well that's about 3 gallons. I can't think of any reptile or amphibian off the top of my head that would fit in there. You could get a millipede though. They're legs move in such interesting patterns and they are just so cute. I'll let you know if I figure anything out.

    I think the smallest might be a 10, could you work with that?

    I found this...

    Fire belly toad
    Pacman frog
    Reed frog
    American green frog
    Some small newts can fit, but with the filtration they require, a bigger tank might be needed
    One axolotl
    African clawed frog

    Note:*Poison dart frogs are very small, but are generally recommended to have at least 20 gallons.

    You might be able to do dwarf frogs in a 5 gallon, but maybe more experienced keepers here might be able to help you more than me lol good luck tho!

    One of the local pet shops recommended to keep 2 white tree frogs in an exo Terra nano which in my opinion is way too small for one white tree frog let alone two.
    Another shop recommended me a bigger terrarium. I have a Komodo medium. Don't know the exact measurements but there's a photo below showing my set up. It didn't cost much either. I highly recommend it.

    If you could get a 10gal then fire bellies would work! They're super cute and easy to take care of!! I've had them for years and absolutely love them!
