    Arrow Please help to build a new home for my Big-Eyed Tree Frogs

    Hello.

    are your measurements in inches or CM? The reason I ask is its harder to heat a large tank and also harder to keep humidity high in a large tank. Correct me if I'm wrong but from whati know, the comfortable temperature range for these frogs is 74-82║ F during the day and a slight drop to around 68-72║ F at night, and A humidity of 80%. which is also difficult in a large tank.

    As for plants I prefer Pothos in my tank as I found they do very well in vivariums.

    Check out this website for info on plants that are good for Vivariums.

    oss isn't required for the BETF, just use terrarium substrate which is coconut ground fine. They come in bricks, just add water. I recently found moss in a package you place in your tank that will come back to life if you keep the humidity high. I'm still experimenting with moss in a large tank. Seems to grow at the bottom where humidity is highest.

    Anyways let me know if your tank is in inches or CM and ill give you more advice on heating and humidity.

    heck this out, I suspect this would work well for BETF, and could be easily adapter into a rain chamber.

    Thumbs up Re: please help to build a new home for my Big-Eyed Tree Frogs

    First of all thank you for you reply.
    Well the measurements are in CM http://terraristic.net/forum/gallery...08_4_45_42.jpg The terrarium was used for chameleon and i bough it from a friend.
    For the humidity i think to install a waterfall(and this is also a big deal for me, because i`m beginner) and to spray inside with watter.
    Thank you again
    Best wishes

    I don't know much about the specific frog, but if you get a tank of that size (which I think you should if you can), you do probably want something more than a handmister. You'll be misting your hands off if you are to keep the humidity up. A waterfall does not a very much to the overall humidity.
    A fogger (Zoomed's ReptiFogger for example) or a misting(rain) system (Exo-Terra's Monsoon or the Mistking for example) would be a great idea, if not a must.

    What kind of wood is not poisonouse for the frogs. I have red somewhere that wood in high humidity area will be a little poison for frogs. So what kind of wood should i choose
