Re: Cohabitation (is it possible?)
I don't reflexively oppose this so much as I am cautious about a paludarium. Can we see it? How big? Neither of these are pond or stream-side frogs.
It can work:
--In a huge enclosure with a vented side;
--%@*#! pretty--you need some broader leaved aroids for these guys to sit on;
--stratify the enclosure with different plants, branches, etc.
So in other words, your tank should look more like a set up for arboreal lizards than PDFs--can ya dig it?
See the pic in D. Edmonds Tree Frogs, p. 76 That is how it's done.
Compare it to the pic on p. 46; definitely cool, but that is a rain chamber not suitable for these guys long term. (This set up, with it more ventilation, works for other tree frogs--green TFs, reed frogs, Theloderma sp., etc. )
Hope this helps.
