Help with land/water setup for whites tree frog
Hi there! I have had my Whites Tree Frog for about 2 years now and since I got him when he was smaller - I have been upgrading his tank throughout the years and he is now in a 10 gallon tank. Currently he has a cave to hid in during the day and sit on the top of at night, a large enough water dish to relax in and a water drip system to keep it moist in there.
I have an empty 29 tall gallon tank that I would like to make his new home. Originally I wanted a half water/half land tank so that I can keep my two guppies in the water side, but also create a sloping terrain so that the frog could go into the water and soak. I am now thinking after more research that maybe that would be too much water for the frog - I have read that he may drown in water over 2-3 inches? Is that correct? I put him in the sink and fill it up and let him relax in there, especially when he is shedding, but I have never seen him in any deeper water than that so I am scared.
I have been researching for many days on how to create a better environment for him. I do want a small water area in addition to his water bowl that will be on the land side. I would prefer not to get plexiglass or anything cut to fit in the tank, I want to create a slope in the tank down to the water. So far looks like plastic egg crates will be a good option - but where do you get these? I have seen a few on ebay but when I google it I don't find what I need. Any help please?
