    Default Pixie Frog Tank, and Care Help

    I've been wanting to get a Pixie Frog for a long time now, and this is the time in June.
    I prepared a list of items that they need, but I need some help with it.

    UTH Heater, from Reptile Basics
    Aqueon Deluxe Full Hood
    Eco Earth
    40 Breeder Empty Glass Tank
    Large Waterbowls
    Multiple Hides

    I have a spray bottle for his humidity, but I heard that it was better to use Heat Lamps, rather than a UTH Heater.
    I was wondering about that, so if I do need a heat lamp, what lid do I use to keep the humidity in?

    Pixie Frogs Diet?
    Heres what I thought I would feed my pixie frog.

    Daily, Crickets
    Monthly, Thawed Mice, and Feeder Goldfish

    I don't know if anything else is healthy for them, because I've heared that superworms aren't the best diet for them, and waxworms too are like a candy.
    I need biggest help in the diet.

    Yes, I know to use de-chlorinated water for their bowls, and spray bottles. I have experience with other reptiles, and animals but not pixie frogs.
    This would be my first one. I'm trying to create a list of care, and needs so I can convince my parents that I did my research.

    On the diet part, I forgot to put Earthworms.
    I will feed those too.

    Well remember they borrow so put the UTH on the side and i would recommend a bulb and light infered sense then can't see the red so you can heat the tank with it also it is very hard to a adult male bullfrog i mean even online they are hard to find and cost a lot im talking 500 bucks well as far as i have seen. if you go young and raise up i also recommend starting on a smaller cage to help the frog feel more secure. other then those notes your doing awesome i also recommend you read the care sheet on this site it is crazy useful.

    I have a breeder near me that I've bought all my reptiles at, and they have very healthy diets, and animals.
    I got my leopard gecko from there, and she was a very healthy one, and very active.

    They sell the bullfrogs for 60$, not sure about the size of them though.
    I will start small, thanks for your help!
