    Default New Toad Mom: Worried about loneliness

    Hi there,

    I recently purchased by first ever fire bellied toad and it has been the best week of my life so far. However I recently came across a couple of pages saying that they can become lonely and now I am extremely worried that he will become lonely. I am a college student and we are only allowed to have a 5 gallon tank in our room and since I read a few posts saying a toad only needs 4 gallons I felt comfortable getting one. But will he become lonely? Do I need to sneak in a larger tank so he can have a friend? I just wanna be a good toad mom. Thank you for the help/reassurance!

    I really don't think toads get lonely, however fire belly toads seem to do well in small colonies. If you don't have room for two, just enjoy the one you have.

    If we can discover the meaning in the trilling of a frog, perhaps we may understand why it is for us not merely noise but a song of poetry and emotion.
