How do I set up a 20G frog vivarium
Hey everyone. I have been toying with the idea of setting up a 20 Gallon vivarium for frogs. I don't know what kind of frog, but I was thinking something small enough that I can have 4 or more frogs in the tank, and something decently easy to care for and cheap to buy.
I want to have live plants in the tank, and try to make it like a natural little piece of jungle for the frogs. I have been doing some research, but I wanted to hear from some people with hands-on experience about what I need for my tank.
So far I think I need a heavy screen for the top (but I am worried the humidity in the tank would not be high enough if I did this), and then I was thinking of have a layer of drainage gravel, then a layer of soil, then a layer of some natural substrate made for reptiles and for plants... Then for lighting I don't know what I need- something to grow plants and frogs :p. I was going to use black bristol board for a background and on the sides probably, and just have one viewing face to keep the stress a little lower for the frogs.
How does this sound? Any input or ideas or flaws or anything?
