    Default Updated WTF Vivarium

    Just a switch up from all the talk about the 75Gallon. The frogs seem to like it.
    I thought of making a bog along with some land that is dry for them.

    I know. It's just difficult because the Frogs love that plant. It sits right under their light and is sturdy enough to support them. I'm going to trim it soon. Hopefully they like this setup or I'll have to redo the build. All is well so far!

    They are a tough plant to keep in a Viv. Not that the plant is hard to take care of, but they grow so fast and get so big. You may consider swapping it out for something a bit more manageable, yet sturdy, like an aglaonema species.

    My mom gave me an offspring of the mother plant which is around 4 and a half feet tall haha. This has been with the tree frogs since last August with only 2 trims so far.

    I will take a look at some other plants. As for the diff I think it's been growing slow enough to maintain in there up to this point. I'll keep it in mind about what you said though.

    I moved my WTF's by the 75 Gallon. Now everyone is out in the hallway. It took me 4 hours but I made it look as nice as I wanted to.

    Max & Elly are very happy with their new tanks new look.

    The Vivarium is going to get another facelift. I'm going to do small containers for islands for the plants and dirt so there will be all water. I'm gonna get some branches from the local pet store also for the WTF's. Thinking of having a Beta Fish or a group (3-5) of Rosy Reds and trying to breed them to feed some to my Leopard Frog. If anybody has tried this or has some experience with this or has an opinion please let me know. I'm not going to get any fish unless I know it will be safe for them also.

    Brock the Betta Fish has joined Max & Elly for an Arboreal and Aquatic Setup. Happy with progress. Out can't see the Waterfall in the pic but it's ok.

    Sorry for no videos or real updates, I have been focused on the 75 Gallon and keeping everything under control. The enclosure looks nice but I am hard to please so until I get it to look the way I can imagine, I'm holding off on pics and videos. Updates are going to happen still, all are doing great. The Tree Frogs are happy and are getting used to the water. The Betta Fish is the happiest little thing I've ever seen. Brock is so friendly. He begs for food and between me and when I'm at work my mom give him food. I caught on however, so now I just put a "treat" amount in. Like a piece or 2. He runs from the frogs when they are in the water, he just goes to the back of the tank which surprisingly I can't find him when he goes to his spot. It's good because the Fish are out in the day and the frogs are out at night. I also saved a Rosy Red Minnow. I got her warmed up to the tank temp so she is good. Very shy, the Betta fish doesn't care, the minnow will sometimes follow the Betta. Never thought I'd have fish but, they are worth it!

    Nice setup. I admire people who actually know how to do both water and dirt!

    The frogs seem happier that the dirt doesn't stick to them all the time.

    With so many people asking what is cool to mix with WTFs, Which is one of the most aggressive and imo territorial tree frogs to own I have 2 answers that are not what people would be initially asking for. First would be Earthworms and Woodlice. Good for the plants and I hear the frogs will not eat them. So a win win so to speak because the Woodlice clean the poop up and decaying matter. The 2nd is depending on your frogs. I have kept mine in rainforest type conditions mostly, care for these frogs has varied opinions. Back to mine; since they are used to higher humidity and didn't like being covered in dirt, I switched to 60-40 water and they have a small piece of terrestrial and a more arboreal/aquatic setup. I do not recommend many things in the water. The 2nd choice is a Betta. Doesn't require a pump, very easy going, does not need a community, and very friendly. Mine has a lot more room and a pump from a waterfall so it's got above and beyond the care. The frogs can eat the Betta however, I am running a risk with the fish. The best thing is with this fish: while the frogs sleep the fish is out, and at night the fish sleeps the frogs are out. So it decreases the chances of the fish being a snack. You also have a 24/7 tank with something always entertaining happening. The fish is not for anyone though. Make sure it gets the same attention as the frogs because it needs care also. It's not something you throw in because you can or because it looks nice; it is something that if treated properly will reward you with an added beauty and a different outlook on fish and "mixed species terrariums", fyi, the frogs poop out of the water so the Betta doesn't get poisoned.
