    Default Question

    Aside from solely aquatic species, do all species of frogs and toads get stressed in aquariums for enclosures? If so, would it be better to use Sterilite bins as enclosures?

    Most don't get stressed in aquariums. I keep toads and many tree frogs in aquarium/glass terrariums. Some pond frogs can be kept but the too high strung ones shouldn't be kept. Plastic bins would need to be very big for the high strung frog

    If by aquarium you just mean a glass enclosure, these can be adatped to keep a lot of different frogs and toads very well.

    What would be the high strung species? Also, would those in the "most" category include pyxie frogs, American bullfrogs, and Pacman frogs?

    Many pond frogs are bad pets. You need more then 90 gallons for bullfrogs. They need a lot of space and they are high-strung so perhaps the green frog would be easier and a better candidate.

    Do you still recommend the green frog as an alternative?

    No because I think it would be better for you to research frogs and see what species that you want to own first.
