Coral Keepers new terrarium dairy!


Hello everyone! I'm starting up a new terrarium which will house 2 Green Pacific Tree Frogs. I have both of the Green Pacific Tree Frogs, one is full grown and one is still a tadpole who has 2 legs already. Right now, the Green Pacific Tree Frogs are in a small 2 gallon holding tank while I'm setting the 10 gallon terrarium. Its going to take me a day or two more to finish up the 10 gallon terrarium. I don't have any pictures of the terrarium because my camera broke and I shipped it to the company who is going to fix up the camera and send it back. Here is a picture of the Green Pacific Tree Frog.(I got the picture from the internet, the Green Pacific Tree Frog that I have right now looks 100% the same)

Well, I got quite alot done. Put in a stream, rocks for drainage, a screen to divide the rocks and coco fiber, glued the pump wire to the back of the tank, cut/made a acrylic top with handle, mixed the cocofiber with some sand, orchid bark, and oak leaves, and I think that's it. I'll get pictures of the tank when the camera comes back.

I love to watch and play with these frogs. All my planters on my deck have several frogs in them. In the late spring when I first start to water, There are all these little noses sticking out of the planters drain. Once in awhile one gets stuck and I have to pull him out. They sign all summer and not like bullfrogs. What did you feed them. Mine climb the walls near windows and doors to eat bug that are attracted by the light.

Neat frog!

I don't think it mixes well with milk products though.

Well, I got TONS more done. I added the coco fiber mix, the stream, lots of brom plants, another kind of plant, lots of rolly pollies, earwigs(pincherbugs), added a light for the plants, and last but not least, I added the tree frog. He/she LOVES the terrarium! I'm going to add some java moss tomorrow and a few other plants. Will have pictures soon.

I got lots of plants today! I also put the second tree frog into the tank, the tadpole already turned into a frog a while ago.

Well, I was able to take a few pictures with a crappy camera. The first picture is the adult Green Pacific Tree Frog chillin in the brom, and the second picture is the baby Brown Pacific Tree Frog(u can see the Green Pacific Tree Frog in the brom closer to the top), and the third picture is a part of the stream. They don't fight or anything, I've seen them near each other with no problems. I got a few FTSs, but IMO they look crappy so I wont post them.
