I have a 10g aquarium, no trim, ADA looking sort of box. Considering a vivarium.............. would a small frog be too much for this? I wouldnt mine one if they arent a huge upkeep item and if they arent going to keep us up all night singing LOL

Advice appreciated.

Well, depending on your setup, Bombina orientalis work great in such a small space, along with fire belly newts too. Chubby frogs, tomato frogs, pixie frogs, and other relatively inactive frogs would also do well in there. The only thing I would really suggest against is keeping any tree frogs, as they need lots of space to be happy. Dependent upon your experience and willingess to put effort in, thumbnail dendrobatids would also make fascinating additions (for more information, visit Dendroboard - Your source for dart frog information..) Well, that should about cover it I think.

Take a look at the post from Nellis. The Dendrobates imitator is what he has. They are part of a group of Poison Dart Frogs known as "thumbnail frogs", because that's their size full grown!

Sorry, Just checking on the board this morning.

I work with a couple of types of D. imitator and would be happy to set you up with a couple.

Exo Terra's are nice tanks - but they're not "fly proof".

You really need to work them over to make them so fruit flies cannot as easily escape.

That said - a nice tank to start with. I really prefer front opening tanks.

Good luck with a nice viv. i'm having trouble finding a nice cork backdrop for mine.
