As with anything else that involved animal welfare.. the individual's definition is not necessarily the accepted standard as the welfare of the animal is what needs to be considered optimal.

Define adequate size and on what standard and proof that the size is adequate?
Define proper substrate and on what standard and proof that the substrate is "proper".
Define well planted and define not overgrown.
Define proper humidity and on what standard and proof. Does the proper humidity apply to all species that could be housed in the enclosure?

As above, define all of these vague terms.

Define "plump" most of the frogs in enclosures are obese when compared to the wild counterparts. How do you determine if your plump is obese. Obesity could very be a sign of poor husbandry.

Define excessive aggression and how you reached that result.
