Hey, I am rather new to the PDF community. But, I created my tank over a month ago now and got 2 little leucs to go in it. I was going to create a blog on here but I already have it all blogged on a website for my family so I thought I would just share that instead. The first two posts are about the frogs and my tank set up, along with how I created my tank.

Don't quote me on this but I heard that plant on the right hand side of the viv my be bad for darts. I read that in another post. The Croton. It grows big too, just a heads up.
I believe the danger that was pointed out was the plant's toxicity when ingested. I'd wait for an expert opinion before you started ripping things apart.

Welcome, Allyse...you've got some great looking leucs there! :)

I just wanted to point something out... I may be wrong, but you can't always trust a hygrometer and in those pics with the leucs, your tank looks extremely dry. Are you getting humidity on the glass? If not, you may want to really increase your misting.

Wow that's reeeeeaaaaaalllly dry,order some magnolia leafs and put an inch layer,it gives the frogs a feeling of security,and will make them MUCH happier in they also if you haven't already put a glass lid on top,also take out the croton it's poisonous if ingested,seed the tank with springtails,and don't worry if the leafs get a little moldy,if they are covered in mold take them out btw your frogs are really cute!

yeah, I also thought it was a little dry compared to the other tanks that I have seen. So I did get some leaf litter and put that in there. But it was engulfed in mold in under a week. My fiance wasn't too fond of the mold so I had to take those out and I replaced them with moss instead. Will that help at all?

The frogs seem to like that more. Except I noticed that one of my frogs got thinner and seemed to be having a hard time finding food so I put a piece of banana in there and now he looks very happy.

Most new tanks will go through a mold phase, but that will go away eventually. If you seed your tank with springs they'll also help keep the mold in check. If it were me I'd put a few inches of leaf litter back in instead of the moss, it's much more natural.
