Default What can I add. . . .

Hi! I am new to this site and have found it a wealth of information already. My husband created me a 85 gallon octogonal viv about 4 months ago. He recently bought me a red eyed tree frog to put in it, and he seems to be thriving very well. What if anything can I mix with it to ensure that it all co-habitates well together? Any ideas? I am asking now, before I make any mistakes. . . . Thanks in advance for the advice. Oh, and if you only have info about Darts then let me know that also, and I can remove myself from this page. . . . . . . .

I think you will find better results in the other amphibians section, but my first post was accidentially in the classifieds section, so don't feel bad

I wouldn't trust the red eye with any darts, it would probably eat them. I don't know about geckos, but why don't you find him another red eye friend?

Here is a good place to start:

Basically mixing is frowned upon by the hobby due to the stress it can put on the animals. There is a write within the link above, and a number of topics on it here.

Default Thanks. . . .

Thanks for the replys. Guess "John Bob" it will be getting another red eyed tree frog then for a viv mate. . . . . . . .
The one I currently have is about 2" long, how many would you say would be safe is it 1 frog per 5 gallons across the board? And should I go with the 2 males to female ratio that seems pretty consistant? I would like to if I can, have about 6-8 frogs eventually if I can only have the one species, but if that will create stress in the viv then I will only do 2. Thanks again for the info.

An 85 gal. octagon!....if it's set up right with plenty of sturdy lrg leaved plants and cover you should be able to put a nice group of 4-6 adult red eyes in there. And if you play your cards right you should get plenty of breeding activity out of them.
