    I like your tank, but the fog looks worrying. Most tree frogs do need decent ventilation and the tank should never be too moist. I have mine in an exo terra with the screen top and vents under the doors, even with that I only have to mist a few times a week to get humidity up to 70%. I personally think 20 gallons is suitable for up to four because they're not large. Having four will better the chances of you seeing one during the day resting on a leaf or glass

    Ok sweet, so what do you suggest for getting rid of the fog? Computer fan hooked up to create air flog maybe? More vent holes in the lid?

    Is it just holes for ventilation on top or a full screen top?

    Yeah, being able to dry out is just as important as access to water- I personally believe that an overly damp enclosure is one of the biggest causes of infectious disease among captive frogs. Even semiaquatic species like bullfrogs frequently bask on warm, dry rocks and logs for extended periods of time. Grab a frog before it leaps into the water, and you'll probably be surprised by how dry and sticky they let their skin get.

    Ok so just add more holes in the plexi glass and add a computer fan and thats good? And what about uvb for these frogs how much do they need and will the glass affect it?

    UV can't go through glass. I would really use a screen lid, for that reason and superior ventilation.

    Get some wood like 1" x 1" or smaller buy a glue gun, staple gun and staple some aluminium mesh round your frame, use the glue gun to go round.

    This is the type of mesh your after its sold more in the hobbyist market for doll house makers etc buy it by the metre:
