Firebelly Toads:A Few Words of Advice Would Be Appreciated
So I've been looking around at a few places, and thinking, what is going to live in this thing? I think I am at the point where I am going to have to make at least a cursory decision.
I really want Firebelly toads to live in here, but I have heard that they are mildly toxic enough to kill aquatic companions. And the major reason I got a second tank was to house my African Dwarf Frogs. Then I got my drill gun and my jigsaw out and all hell broke lose.
Anyway, take a look at the pics and see what you think. The area is basically a 10g with a 15"hX20"wX24"d area placed on top. That means roughly two 10"x12" areas of land and water. I was originally designing it with an eye to keeping tree frogs or firebellys, but I think I should have made it taller if I really wanted tree frogs.
But I don't know if this setup just has too much water for anything that lives on the ground. I have see a lot of firebelly habitats, and they all have just a little pool. I am going to put a plexiglass "shelf" in the tank that will be like 1" deep. Everyone says they are semi aquatic and that they only climb mildly. I have a lot of drift wood I have been saving for this project so there will be lots to climb. I guess I just figured, people can only tell me so much. I can actually show you guys this thing and I'm sure someone knows what these critters like, so I figured I'd ask. So what do you think?
