    Smile Hi! Got Grey Tree Frog Tads with hind legs! Help!

    Hi all,
    New to the forum and glad to be here! I got some grey tree frogs tads with one of them sprouting legs now. Need a set up shortly! Thinking of converting my 20 gallon Long tank into a vertical tank with a conversion kit. Usually people make them out of 20 gallon High tanks. Would this be ok with the long tank?

    Any advice appreciated!

    Hi, and Welcome to the Forum!

    Congrats on your tads! John and Kurt have written an excellent Care Article FrogForum - Gray Tree Frog Care that explains how to set-up a terrarium for, care, feed, and keep these frogs from tads to adults. Check it out!

    How many tadpoles do you have?

    Thanks! Got 10 Tads and 2 more just popped their hind legs today! So excited! I saw the article and it was great! Everyone on the web talk about using 20 gallon high tanks but not long tanks to convert as verticle tanks. Just wondering if anyone converted a long tank and if their frogs liked it.

    I converted my 20gal and very pleased with Black Jungle's Conversion Kit. It was inexpensive and easy to do though you might need an extra pair of hands. Looking back, I believe what you are witnessing now with your froglets, is the most bonding moment you will have with your long time relationship with your new friends. Take pictures, you'll appreciate them so much as time goes by. I read somewhere, that the right leg is the last to come out, and at the very moment, the gills slam shut and the froglet takes its first breath using its new lungs. Amazing isn't it. What must he think of his new world when he takes that first breathe. The owner of the froglet who took the Photo of the Month March 2012 captures that moment.
