    Default I'm Starting A Terrarium and I don't know what plants to grow.

    What plants are good for a 20 gallon tank terrarium that I plan on putting frogs and insects in?

    That depends on what type of biome you are building. Wet? Dry? Tropical? Temperate? What type of lighting are you planning on using? Which species are you planning on housing in it? What temperature or humidity are you planning? Is it a twenty long or tall?

    Josh's Frogs is selling Woodhouse Toads. One or two would be okay in a setup like that. It depends what state you live in because some states don't allow you to catch amphibians. The Woodhouse Toads are captive from Josh's Frogs so they would be considered an exotic pet.

    Are you asking me if I know the state law or are you saying you live in that state and they allow catching amphibians?
