I have a couple of questions after doing extensive research and seeing conflicting information! My frog is still fairly young and Iíve only had him for a couple days, so I want to make sure Iím getting the right supplies.

a.) Should I partition my 10gal tank? Heís used the full space but tends to stick to the one corner with the heat pad. I donít want a huge space to stress him out.

b.) Is ambient window light bad? Thereís no direct sunlight coming into the room, and I figured it would be more reliable than manual lighting. Iím planning to add backdrops to two or three sides, so thatíll probably dim the light somewhat. Heís not albinistic, so if I need to add a lamp I can.

c.) If my tank is staying at the right temperature, is a UTH okay? Iíve heard mixed reviews about them.

d.) I laid a towel over the mesh to keep in moisture and heat. Is this okay, or do I need more heating and misting and open mesh for ventilation? Would it be fine to just pull the towel back to halfway-covering the top?

d.) Iím starting with crickets because I can breed them myself. I got a gel (Flukerís Cricket Feeder, Calcium Fortified) and want to know if that will appropriately gut-load the crickets. What other foods are good? Iím thinking about worms, but donít want anything too big since heís still little.
(Any advice on keeping and breeding crickets would be very much appreciated!!)


Thanks so much in advance, and hereís the form for any more information yíall might need-

1. Size of enclosure- 10 Gal

2. # of inhabitants - 1 pacman frog
3. Humidity- between 60-80%
4. Temperature- around 80į F
5. Water - spring water for soaking and misting
6. Materials used for substrate - coconut fiber substrate
7. Enclosure set up i.e. plants (live or artificial), wood, bark and other materials. - wood hide, soaking dish, fake plant, and mesh top w/ towel to keep in moisture.

8. Main food source -
crickets
9. Vitamins and calcium? (how often) - none yet, but Iím planning on getting calcium powder
10. Lighting- ambient light from the window
11. What is being used to maintain the temperature of the enclosure- UTH pad on the side of the tank
12. When is the last time he/she ate- hasnít eaten yet
13. Have you found poop lately- no

19. Frog food- how often and if it is diverse, what other feeders are used as treats- Iíve tried feeding daily so far but he seems stressed and hasnít eaten. he did lunge at a live cricket though so hopefully heís settling in.
