Fishies_in_Philly oh, and this no longer houses white's tree frogs. it now houses these guys :

red eyed tree frogs. i rescued them from petco. funny how i never feel as though i am purchasing animals from petco so much as i am rescuing them. LOL

Fishies_in_Philly Thanks dan........i have to place an order with a company for plants for the 125 and i'm gonna get a microgramma species of epiphytic fern for that

ThinkTank that looks really nice Bill.

I was thinking some type of hanging plant would look good on that wood. Something that would look like vines hanging down to the substrate. Maybe dried moss.

Fishies_in_Philly well, i got bored tonight, and i didn't feel like spending the night on my knees covering the background of the 125. so i decided to rescape my white's tank. i essentially covered the pond and planted a few extra plants in it. so here it is as it sits now. Prophet was not to happy to be put into a temp home, but he is currently checking out his new decor

LOL, I love when a conversation spreads over multiple threads. As I posted in the other thread, these guys like water, but not too much.

Fishies_in_Philly Well, apparently, my houdini frog had a little brother. Another escaped, even after i redesigned the lid to be escape proof. I have a sneaky suspicion that my daughter and friends may have left the enclosure open after looking at them. But to err on the safe side, the lone ranger is living in a sweater box until i reconfigure his enclosure in a couple weeks. Gotta finish the 125 first.

You could always set up a temp home for them at home for the summer. Or have a contest, the student that does the best at whatever gets to take them home for the summer?

Wy Renegade Thats too bad about the escapie, but it looks like the tank is starting to fill in nicely. What type of fern are you using?
09-28-2012 04:20 PM
Fishies_in_Philly The frogs are very happy. But we're down to 2. One became an escape artist and i never found him so the prophet and technoboy have the whole enclosure fo themselves. It has grown in a bit. Added a few plants. The crypts are finally starting to grow now.

Wy Renegade Any updates? How are the frogs doing?
