I've had this 20H tank set up for quite a while now and I have never put anything in it.

Here's the link to where I originally posted it: http://www.dendroboard.com/forum/members-frogs-vivariums/62667-my-first-viv-build.html

I have since planted it and added a log to the bottom. I'll post updated pics in a few weeks when I go home for the summer.

I was looking for suggestions for frogs for this tank. I am looking for something interesting and uncommon. I know leucs, tinc, etc will do fine in here, but I'm looking for something else. It doesn't have to be a dart (in fact, I welcome non-dart suggestions). I'm not sure when I'll be able to do something with this as of now, but I'm just looking for ideas.

Thanks!

Golden geckos are wonderful animals---I had one for years. I had a little harness for it and it would ride on my shoulder and was very tame. The only time it bit me was by accident when I was trying to hand-feed it a cricket. If you are really set on a frog, get a smaller one like a White's tree frog.

I have also read that many of the solid colored pumilio like to hang out and breed in leaf litter, so they may like your tank as well.

I have some begonias that would look nice in that sort of tank and do well with only moderately moist and light, airy substrate. They don't do so well in tanks with daily misting---they're sort of like succulents.

I never even thought of anything but frogs, but I could look into reptiles as well. I would love to keep pumilio, but I don't think I have the experince yet to feel comfortable with these. Would I be able to do something like red eyes, tiger legs, clowns, hourglass, or some other tree frogs? Maybe Phelsumas or pygmy chameleons on the reptile side? Or would all of these animals need a more vertical tank?

White's tree frogs are considered small?!? Maybe compared to a pixie or a pacman, but mine is approx the size of a medium sized apple, I wouldn't consider that small for a tree frog ;)

My White's is in a 33 gallon breeder, converted to be 33g H and she uses every inch of that space. I have heard of people using 10g converts for White's but just from personal experience with the size of a White's I would say a 20g, vertically oriented, would be the bare minimum.

I was thinking of the limbs when I said that---as in one that would stay fairly motionless and not hurt itself jumping around like a long-limbed Red-Eyed Tree Frog.
