Default Azureus froglets and tank

Soo, this is the 10 gallon tank setup with 2 D. Azureus froglets.

They're getting big and are very pretty

Input appreciated

Beautiful frogs!

I'd put some leaf litter over that moss. The moss will get mucky after a bit.

Right.

I have an Oak tree outside. So I'd have to boil the leaves.

Advice on how to do this?

I just dump the leaves in a pot of water and let it boil for a few minutes. Then spread them out on something and let them dry out and cool down a bit. Then toss them in the tank.

Aha, sounds simple.

I'll boil some for 10mins, to be safe

Cool, my tank looks pretty similar...except that I don't have frogs. Is this a grow-out tank or their permanent home???

It looks like your water level may be a little high... which will decrease the life of your sphagnum. You dont want the water level to be touching the bottom of your substrate.

I just noticed the water. Yea you should let that down a bit. What I do for my rock ponds (do mine the same way as yours) is to scoop out the rocks a bit, so that the water will fill it but still be a bit below the substrate.

You could pull the rocks out where the pond is, mash the screen flat to the bottom of the tank, and put some rocks back on top. (that's how I've done it)

xshortstufx- This is a growout tank. Eventually, they will move into a 20L where they will live permantley (maybe, If I don't decide to get them a bigger tank) and depending upon the sex of each frog.

Carola1155 and Frogface- yes, i've noticed that. I will take care of that. Good advice

EDIT: As a side not, I don't remember one of the froglets eating for the past two days. And the other may be getting larger. I'm not sure if he's losing weight or not, but I'm going to keep an eye on him. And get some feeding stations set up

Okay, So I'm boiling leaves now.

Does it matter if they're dead(brown) or alive(green)?

I'm not sure of the reason behind it but 100% of the terrariums with leaves I've seen on this site use dead ones.
