R. Imitator Chazuta tank.


Trying to build a habitat for a pair of Chazuta frogs, the tank is 18''x18''x24'' exo terra.
Waiting on a nice selection of vivarium plants from Hydrophyte.

Additional substrate mix and plants added, Thanks to Devin.
And a trio of young Chazuta frogs in there also, still waiting for them to call, once I figure out the male and female frog I will relocate the third one to another tank.

Nice!!! I'm thinking about doing dart frogs too! Where did you get the R. Imitator? [Sorry about all these questions...] What lighting are you using?

I got them from a local breeder. For the lighting I just use couple CFL bulbs, each is 10watt & 6500k.

Yes they are but I will replace them with other type of plants instead, like Bromeliads.

I added some broms already and the frogs are hanging in there all the time, I just made a DIY mister that keeps the broms full of water.
