    Talking My fantasy FINALLY arrived

    I ordered my fantasy frog from reptilecity.com, and after they gave me multiple shipping dates, they finally shipped it last night. Then today, it was supposed to arrive at 12 noon, but didnt end up getting here till 3:20 pm, so this has been a order from hell to say the least. But he is here now and is warming up from the journey.

    Sphagnum moss!!! aaahhhh! Moss can cause impaction. It safer to use eco earth or other coconut fiber.

    Nice frog though. Fantasies are evil looking.

    Congrats on receiving your frog alive and well! Yes, if you feed it in there and frogs ingests the moss substrate it could be bad for it. Ground coconut fiber like Plantation Soil, Eco Earth, etc. is a much better substrate since frog can pass it through digestive tract without problems.
    Remember to take care of the enclosure and it will take care of your frog !​

    Congrats on the little guy/girl. He/she is very cute. It would be best for you to feed in a seperate container. Feeding in his home could cause impaction as was stated above. I'm glad you have decided to feed in a seperate container.

    Cover 3 sides of the tank and get him off that moss ASAP. Switch the substrate to eco earth about an inch deep.

    It reduces stress if you cover 3 sides of your frogs enclosure with some kind of background to make them feel more secure. Its always a good idea to do this.

    i have the back of the tank painted black and his tank is in a closet that i use to keep all my aquarium supplies. I will probable paint the other 2 sides when I clean the tank next.

    If you have a UTH on one side of the tank you shouldn't have to paint that side as the UTH will provide the third background.

    You need to remove the UTH from the bottom of the tank very carefully and replace it on the side of the tank opposite the water dish. These are burrowing frogs. Your frog may burrow over the UTH and become burned by the glass. Plus they burrow to cool off. Your frog won't understand why it can't cool off when it burrows in that area and it will become overheated and possibly die.
