I recently got a Marine-Land 30G Half Moon (27l x 27h x 18d) and have been trying to decide how I want to design it and that requires knowing what frogs I'm going to be putting in there. I've mainly been looking at tree frogs so far but want to consider dart frogs. I am looking for any suggestions on the species I should consider whether its tree frogs or dart frogs and also looking for ideas regarding the design of the tank. If anyone has, or can link me too, a vivarium in a similar sized and shaped enclosure for inspiration that would be greatly appreciated. I've been trying to find images of half moon vivariums and haven't had much luck.
If you added some ventilation to the top, perhaps if you put ventilation in the back, still I don't think this is a good tank for darts, I feel as though if you added some ventilation mossy frogs would be fine in it. Do ye research. Also can you even drill acrylic? I've never tried. Also yeah top only opening tanks make me want to cry too.

I fully intend to do all my research before potentially getting any frogs. Any time I get new pets its always months of research and planning.



I am curious as to the reasons why the bow front isn't ideal. Is it due to the lack of air circulation? Or potentially that the bow makes it more exposed so harder for frogs to feel secure?

I had been thinking about getting frogs for a couple of weeks and then I was able to get this tank for free. My thinking was that since it is a tank with more vertical space rather than floor space it would be a more suited towards tree frogs. The other alternative for this tank is to become a terrarium/greenhouse for some of my houseplants.
Darts do poorly in stagnant air (so I've been told) And the lack of a front opening door makes maintenance hard, but if you wanted to do mossy frogs "the only frogs I keep" I feel that they would do fine as long as you added a little extra ventilation to the top. Mossy frogs means having water in the bottom and climbing surfaces ect.
