Sounds like it... search for 'rain chamber' and it should tell you everything you need to know about breeding setups for tree frogs. Good luck!

Definately in amplexus...with all the crazy pressure changes down there lately you should get eggs. I loved major storms when I was breeding tree frogs.

When mine lay I place the leaf egg side up on a rack that I make out of 1/4 inch hardware cloth, this rack is an inch or two above frog safe water inside a shoebox or rubbermaid tote, kept with the lid on it so the humidity stays up. I keep in room with low 70's temps and they hatch in 7 to 10 days on avg, dropping in the water from the leaves. With this method I devised many years ago you never have to worry about eggs falling in the water.

In a pinch, I've used fruit fly cups. I take the cup place some water in the bottom and then punch a hole in the center of the cup. The stem of the leaf is then pushed up through the hole and secured with some duct tape. This then allows the eggs to have good humidity and air circulation.
