Question Can a Bumble Bee Walking Toad be ok with Anoles in a 20H with Lots of Hiding Places?

It's set up Perfect and tons of Hiding Places. I know the two are same temp and Humidity just that the anoles like more Light. But I do have many Shaded areas.

What I want to know is would they go after my little guy?

He's alone in a 5 gallon and before I got the anoles he was in the 20H and much more active in their.

If i get him some friends would he be more active?

Both set ups are Perfect and have lots of wood to climb on as well as frog moss and coconut dirt or whatever you call it for them to burrow in.

Personally, I don't like to mix amphibians with anything. Toads and frogs all have some amount of toxin in their skin that can cause problems for anything else in the tank. Plus, you'd be surprised what a small toad can fit into it's mouth

Got Plants?-6 CO2 + 12 H2O → C6H12O6 + 6 O2 + 6 H2O

Always interested in trades for aroids, carnivores, orchids, ferns, or whatever else you think I might like to try

Anoles & toads will pretty much eat anything that can fit in their mouth.

+1 on the toxins too.

lots if hiding places helps. It'll make it to where there's a longer time before the inevitable death/dismemberment.

Sadly, reptiles/amphibians aren't very good candidates for mixing/matching.

^ehhhh i dunno if i agree with that statement... it can be done if done carefully and with enough research. I have seen a tank with a water feature with newts all over the place and a chameleon. looked siiiick

if you keep them in a large enough system its possible long term. extremely careful planning has to go into the systems layout. One thing i have noticed with my anoles and toads (kept together in a 125) is that my anoles do not ever go to the floor of the terrarium because there is a significant amount of branchwork in the system. My toad stays on the ground and in his burrow far out of way of any anole. then again this is simply my personal experience and obviously success is determined by species of both parties as well as the ecosystem's size

well I'm still on and off about it. The bumble bee walking toad is 1.5 inchs and adult size.

my green anoles are about 4inch adult size.

They are still in separate tanks.

I did re arrange the walking toads tank and he seemed to like it more. I want to get him a friend but they are 40$.

As of now I'm going to purchase a 5 shelf steel unit where each can hold 1500 and plan to get a 55. I was thinking of getting a 20 long for the toads.

i could test and see if the anoles go after the toad and just sit there for a few good hours.

I know the anoles stay at the top but I also know if their hungry the toad could be eaten. So maybe I 'm better off with him being alone.
