cocohut and petri dish (i use deli cup lids) you dont need the film cannisters. thats a pretty big viv. You don't need al the height but it will defiantly open up some planting options. You don't need to get crazy with waterfalls and foggers. You'll end up spending more time and effort on them and after 6 months you'll be telling yourself "should have listened to that guy on dendrobaord". But most new people feel the need and do it anyhow. I know I did and I think you'll find many veteran breeders here that will agree. If you want a breeding group focus on the things that will make the frogs happy. Leaf litter, hiding places, breeding places (with that tank I would set up 3-4 coco huts using the space i.e. high places low places they like choices).

Good luck

For me when I was breeding mine it seemed pretty simple. Just make sure they have a lot of cover, put the coco-huts where there is easy access for you. Because since you are new you are definitely gonna be checking it a lot ( I know I did) that way you wont have to disturb them too much. Mist them quite often, I did mine about 5 -7 times a day ( which some would probably say is overkill lol) and feed them everyday.

As far as finding a pair, I'd try contacting Patrick Nabors at Saurian Enterprises, Inc He really knows his stuff and is good at sexing the frogs. I bought a "proven pair" from someone in the fall, and I'm pretty sure they are 2 females. I contacted Patrick this April, he found a male for me, and now I have breeding. He has lots of stuff that isn't always listed on the website, so you can email him and see.
