2nd Attemp at a Terrium

I had to minimize sense I will be in this 1 bedroom appnt for a year then moving to Arizona. Anyways I got a 55 so I had to mix two tanks into one Larger one Hopefully they will survive and everything will be ok.

I have 4 Green Anoles, 2 Reed Frogs, and 1 Bumblebee walking Toad.

None are Poisonous due to no longer eating the food that was in their natural habitat which aloud them to be toxic.

In the tank I did use Fake plants that are hanging in order to add more of a natural look. I try not using fake plants but these ones worked out really well and the anole love resting on them.

I then have 1 tropical plant and two Bamboos. I will add more live plants.

There is two kinds of Frog moss, then I have drift wood, and sanded Vine wood, also a Jungle Gym wood set, a coconut bowl to put the food in, and a coconut shell to act as shaded shelter. A Bathing Bowl and a small drinking Bowl. Then I use Tropical Soil and I have one large rock which could act as a cooling spot.


I plan to add A fogger to keep moisture.

There is a 20-30 stick on heater at the top right corner, and I use Life glow Light Bulb.

I may add a long tail Anole

Then more Bumblebee Toads and Reed Frogs.

So far everyone is being fed equally. I woke up and the one reed frog that I can always find and my bumblebee toad had full bellies. I put dusted pin head crickets in there. About 40. I will get a fruit fly colony.

As for the Anoles they get medium dusted and gut loaded crickets and wax worms which they love.

I like the look of your terrarium. Your critters should be happy.

If you want to get rid of the fake plants, you could try a small potted philodendron. It would probably do well in there, and would like climbing on the branches.
