Hello!

Your English seems perfectly fine to me.

Anyway, I have bred all of which you have listed in ten gallon vivaria. I would suggest more space though just so the animals aren't so cramped. I should add that I kept only pairs in these ten gals.

Definately decorate! Plants....Plants...Plants! And of course a coco-hut.

This also interests me. So is a 10 gallon set-up ok for breeding a pair? Could they live there long term? Could you use 10 gallon verts? Out of the frogs that she listed, which ones prefer a vertical orientation (maybe luecs)? Which would prefer a horizontal orientation (azureus)?

Thanks,

David

Where would be a good place to get glass and to have it cut? Aren't the edges sharp? Does anyone put something around the edges? If so, what?

TIA,

In my opinion, it would be a waste to put any of thoose frogs in a vert ten, as all thoose frogs prefer horizontal space more than vertical space.

That is the sort of thing that I am concerned about! Anyone else want to chime in? Space is also a consideration. Any suggestions on how to arrange about 4-6 10 gallon tanks that is both functional (easy access and space saving) and good for the frogs?

TIA,

yea homemade tops from the shop are the best...unless they sand the edges to where its too smalll and you dont notice it until you get home.....then its just a waste of money....but if its done right...worth every cent

Ok Ok...I admit it...I am just too lazy...so I am ordering 4 vertical custom 10 gallon inserts made of acrylic for $39.00 a pop. I know it's expensive, but they are really high quality.

hey david, where are you ordering the inserts from? I don't have a car at the moment, so driving around getting glass cut for me would be a major pain. thanks.

I use heavy duty 36" plastic racks (they were free, I got 20 levels that are 2 feet deep, and 8-10 that are 18" deep), I can fit 3 tens on each level, and for the amount of shelves I can fit in my frog room/shed I can have 36 tens, and still have room for flies, my other feeders, and bromeliads.

I would save the 10 gallon verts for thumbnails, like vents, imitators, retics and pumilios.

I would build 20 gallon verts for leucs, galacs, auratus, and dwarf tincs; maybe some young tincs and azureus.

The larger tincs and terribilis probably need more ground space, like 29 gallon.

Just a thought.
