    Default Risking a live tank?

    Hey it's been a while and I've been thinking.

    In the past my frogs have been treated for parasites (trematodes). At that time I took apart my live tank completely and switched to paper towels.

    On one hand there's a danger that despite the rounds of medication the frogs might not be completely parasite free. A live tank could allow them to build up in the frogs again. On the other hand, it's been a few years and the frogs were thoroughly medicated. I'd like to go back to a live tank to keep the place more humid in the winter, but I'm uncertain.

    Does anyone have experience with this or advice?
