I'm currently building a third tank. Its an old Oceanic Hex. I think maybe 35 gal. From what I've read the Ranitomeya seem more partial to using vertical space, would a pair of them be suitable for it?

The tank in question. I cut the glass myself after being unable to find a local shop that would do a custom mitre. Still need to replace some silicone and cut vents.

Nice! What are your ideas regarding the door? Are you installing a sliding type? What about vents? Where will you be placing them?

I love custom builds. I just wish I was more handy along these lines. I’m actually having a custom build done for me right now. It should be ready in the next week or two.

That looks like it could be really cool when finished. Are you considering doing one of those designs with a central "tree"? Something like that would look really awesome, and if carefully designed could provide a lot of vertical space for frogs to explore.

It’ll be hinged with a hasp opposite the hinge to keep it shut, bought them from josh’s frogs. Vents will be 2in mesh probably 2-4 just above the substrate line then high venting at the top, still planning out how the top will work. Might do less low vents and add a froskr fan as a supplement.

That is my idea, ive been looking at a manzanita piece, kind of a tripod that i could plant around and give them a little sanctuary then ghost wood fronds for their accessability, i haven’t planned too far ahead yet since i’m still building.

Cool. A fan would probably be a good idea. I had a friend who had a couple of these hex tanks for his pumilio and he ended up having to run fans for them because they got overly humid.

I think that would be fine for a pair or trio of ranitomeya.
