    Question Whites Tree Frog Lighting HELP!

    Hello!

    I'm very confused on how to do lighting for my Whites Tree Frog.

    So I have currently one Whites Tree Frog in a 10 gallon tank (he's upgrading soon don't worry!) one bromeliad, a few pieces of wood, and a few plastic plants. I know that the plant needs light and I know it's debatable on whether or not WTF's need light but I figure I want to use it anyways.

    What kind of lighting does my one bromeliad need?

    What kind of lighting does my WTF need?

    This is for a 10 gallon tank so nothing that will excessively heat up the tank or burn him since he likes being up towards the top.


    Links are appreciated!

    Thanks so much!

    -Alyssa

    For the plants you need a full spectrum grow light. Anything sold as a plant grow light should work. Full spectrum includes some UV. Depending on the tank you end up getting, you might get a fixture designed for that tank, or get, say, a hanging lamp.

    However, you might also want a low level UVB bulb, like one of those sold for "Tropical" terrariums.

    As far as not heating up fluorescent or LED bulbs would be the best option.

    I use led bulbs for freshwater planted aquariums on all my vivariums. Anything in the range of 5500 to7500 kelvin will look close to natural light, not overheat and as a bonus your plants will color up nicely (especially bromeliads). My favorite light is fluvals fresh and plant model.
