    I would get some silk plants to hang from the glass so he/she has something to hide behind and or get some magnaturals. Mine LOVE them. You also want to cover the sides and back so he/she doesn't get all stressed out then you bring em' home.

    I recommend silk ones since the WTF will tear up live plants, and plastics ones have sharp edges.

    If you look carefully, you can see a magnetic ledge. Because it is made of Styrofoam, I was wondering whether it would be safe. Any answers?

    I love the magnaturals, and the small & med are a great size for the WTF. I have all three sizes plus 2 large shelves. And I have 5 of the Exo Terra silk ruscus large plants and they hold up well under the weight of the WTF.

    Supposedly the magnaturals are coated with paint safe for amphibians. I don't really know, either. Anyone?

    As far as the styrofoam goes, it should be safe unless little pieces come off that the frog could swallow. I read the reviews and it sounds like since frogs don't have claws there's not much danger of that.

    There's a Youtube tutorial about making your own magnetic ledges from GreatStuff foam, but after buying the great stuff and getting a mold for it, grouting it, painting it, and buying the magnets and gluing them in with silicon it sounds like it might cost as much as the Magnaturals. (Depending on whether you have any of the stuff already and how good at crafts you are.)

    I believe that the magnaturals are safe. Lynn would especially know, she uses those things like tic tacs! As for the styrofoam, the issue that most people experience is crickets and small bugs getting behind the background and dying, or even a frog getting back there if it's loose enough.

    Is there a humidity that is too high? Like a humidity that is high enough to be harmful? Do you guys know what it is?

    Well, for short periods, the humidity can be super high. However, longer periods above 80 or so can cause respiratory problems long term

    Hi all!

    I picked up the frog. Currently, it seems really stressed, and only came out once. It has been in its terrestrial hide almost 24/7. How many more days would it take to come out?

    It'll probably start coming out late at night soon and then come out more in evenings. It may take a while to get used to you. Frogs have different temperments. Some are always a little shy. I think I have a shy one since it took a couple weeks for him to get used to me enough to come out and watch me while I sat reading. (And then he got scared by the vet and wasn't feeling too well from antibiotics so he's back to hiding a lot.)

    It can take up to a few weeks for then to get adjusted to you. My frog adjusted to me almost immediately though and I actually feed her by hand now.
