Red face Newbie

Hi you guys!
Here for help, finally got a pair of Albino Auratus and just need some help from time to time, so far this site has helped me find out the little guys were shedding and not choking, and some good tips for the decor of the tank.
My burning question is why do my frogs like to sit on the top of the foam back of the tank, is it because they like the height, is it because it is cooler, should i be getting more high decor items for them to be up high? anyone know, thanks

How large is the viv? What is the temp on the bottom, and top, of the viv? What is the ventilation? What decor is in the viv (load pic of viv to image sharing site, link here)?

Its 45x45x30 i dont know about the temp on the bottom and the top but my thermometer is usually between 70-80 depending on the time of the day. My reptile store told me to put a heat mat on the side of the tank (outside) and put the sensor between the tank and the mat. there is a large cork bark thing that is the height of the tank some artificial plants and leaf litter

An inexpensive heat gun is imperative if a keeper wants information useful in diagnosing any issues. Any IR heat gun will work.

If you link to pics, people can give more useful comments, too. Sorry I can't be more helpful without additional details.

How old are they? Tank pic will help too.

When mine were young, I had one that would constantly try to get to the top of the tank in the back where my ventilation (and fan was blowing) was. I was curious if that one wanted dryer air for some reason, or if it was an urge to travel at a young age. To be totally honest, I don't think it was for dryer air as the air it wanted to be in was VERY dry. As in shrivel up a frog dry. I modified the tank so it couldn't access the air directly and kill itself, and it eventually grew out of it. Now they spend most of their time (almost) on the floor, and I changed their tank to accommodate more floor space.
