I'm just thinking outloud here and pondering a couple of things

I got a breeder pair that should soon start doing the dirty deed and I got a good idea how I'm going to set up the tad pole tank but once they are past the tad stage do you guys house them individually in small containers or group them together in similar size etc..etc. I'm just trying to prepare for when this happens

190 oz containers like what you see at Joshsfrogs work nicely for new froglets. After that I move em to a bigger rubbermaid with a glass top, filled with spag and topped with leaf litter.

10 gallons.... hydroton, substrate, leaf litter, a few film canisters, & clay backgrounds for a little extra calcium, plus load of springs/isos. If I get too many froglets & fill all of those, 15 quart tubs for backup/overflow.

I have mine set up in several 10 gallon tanks. I like them much better than sterilite containers or totes because you can clearly see the froglets all the time.

Each one is fairly simple... false bottom, sphagnum & leaf litter for substrate, a ton of pothos covering about 1/3 of one side of the tank, and a single large rock.

They seem to like it just fine...they are always out and about and hunker down in the pothos area for naps/sleeping.

It's also simple to tear down once a group of froglets is gone. The sphagnum, leaf litter, and pothos get thrown away. Then just boil the rock and fill the tank containing the false bottom with bleach water and let it sit overnight. Easy-peasy!

This thread was actually perfect timing as it dawned on me that I wont be able to ship through winter. Since I have to add a second rack, I have room for 8 10's to use as growouts. I love the big sterilties but they take up too danged much space in our little place.

Thanks for making me spend more money Wendy !

Noob here, but I decided to use tiny 2 1/2 gallon glass tanks to individually house my first froglets when they first morph out. It's not the most economical option, and I know they will need bigger quarters when they get older, but I am hoping that the tiny tanks will offer a good first terrestrial environment because I can keep the humidity super high and the flies should be easy to catch.

I like that growout area Glenn. Nice and neat!

Just because I’m nosey I must ask, what’s in the tubs on the bottom and at the top? I’m always searching for different ways of making a better mousetrap. :)
