Fishies_in_Philly Np. I love my white's. They are my favs, probably because they were my first frogs, but they do have a lot of character

I've been looking around but haven't considered humidity, though a prominent frog seller on the internet did say it was fine (they also want to sell frogs...) I'll do some more research.

I love White's tree frogs anyway, so maybe I'll go that option. Thanks!

Fishies_in_Philly forgot to add, i would go with White's tree frogs, they are pretty active, are diurnal, grow a nice size, and like humidity in the 80's. they are extremely easy to care for. just make sure it has a good solid lid on it, they are escape artists. i know from experience....LOL

le0p I'm not too worried about the noise, I have a zoo at my place. Birds, cats, dogs, nd frogs that make mating calls every night.

More interested in exotic and something that will be happy and healthy in the the tank

wheatiesl337 I raised fire-bellied toads in the past and found them delightful and quite easy to care for. I recall them making noise occaisonally. I believe they are more terrestrial than aquatic, but they enjoy a good swim. If you went with firebellies, I would at least have a bowl of water for them to sit in.

Since I got into keeping planted aquariums, I have been toying with the idea of doing a 50/50 terresterial/aquatic set up for firebellies using crypts and other plants can grow either submerged or emmersed.

AVN Good, cause ADF and ACF are mainly aquatic.

le0p Ah, good info. I think I'll stick to Tree Frogs or Dart frogs of some kind.. I don't mind having a small water source to take care of.

They dig, will trample over plants unless they are potted, get somewhat big, and they can accidentally ingest soil while catching prey items.

HybridHerp If you want totally emmersed plants, basically a planted terrarium, I know a common but expensive thing would be to do it with poison dart frogs.
Any type of tree frog could probably work though, I don't see why not. Maybe even fire belly toads (which are actually a frog if I recall correctly)

Chrisinator Im thinking the green tree frogs would be less boisterous when it comes to destroying the plants below.

ADJAquariums Green tree forgs but they are LOUD, same with gray tree frogs, when its becoming night and is humid. Just be aware of that when you pick the frogs. you could also probably do some sort of toad or a lepoard frog? however a leapord frog would need some water.

Chrisinator If you put some driftwood on it, I think a green-tree frog would be so cool.
