Gray tree frogs are a common native in my area, and I have to say, I've never seen one that fat before! You seriously may want to consider cutting back on the crickets, and/or adding a taller branch to the landscape (for exercise), before that critter suffers obesity-related health troubles. That said, it's nice to see some vivariums in this site (after all, the term "planted tank" doesn't specify "aquarium"), and I've always thought that Johnny-jump-ups would make a good vivarium plant ... thanks for showing that to be true. Unfortunately, your other submissions on this paging are showing up blank for me. I'll have to reboot, and check 'em out, as I imagine they'll prove interesting.

thanks! believe it or not, the frog was actually that fat when i found her. i thought she might be gravid, but now i'm not so sure... either way i plan to provide lots more climbing space when i make her a long term home; this was just something i threw together. as for the blank tank profiles, those are a error on my end. :P
