I have 2 white's tree frogs. Just lately the biggest one is spending all his time in the water bowl, and I have read that is not natural. Am I doing something wrong? And the smallest one is eating but doesn't seem to be getting a fat belly on him. They will only eat crickets, I have tried worms but they don't seem to move fast enough to get the frogs to pay attention to them. I do dust them with cricket dust. I feed my crickets calcium plus for crickets. Along with carrots, orange, potatoe slices. I have a mixture of green moss & jungle bed in the terrarium. With some real plants and artifical. Here is a pick of my terrarium.
Thanks for any suggestions

I can't see your pictures. I use photobucket and I just copy and paste the URL. I don't know if it is the same with image shack or not.

I don't know anything about white's, but give a little bit more information. What temp and humidity is your tank, how long have you had them, and do you know if they were wild caught or not? I was worried one time when my tomato frog male kept sitting in the water a lot more than normal. Someone told me that a frog will do that if he has a hard time passing his poop. He didn't look sick in any other way or show any odd behavior other than that, so I just watched him. He stopped sitting in the water all the time after a few days. It is also something a frog will do if the humidity is too low, or if they have worms. How many crickets are you feeding, and is there a possibility that the crickets are too large for the frogs? I'm just throwing out ideas here.

wow, you gave me alot to think about. The temp is usually around 76 during the day at night its around 74. The humidity I'm not sure of. But I have read that white's can adapt easily to their enviro. I mist the terrarium 2 times a day. I have yet to see anyone say anything about how often to clean and change bedding. I saw him pass poo the other day, didn't look like he was having any problems.
you can see pics (I think) www.tagworld.com/whitie2

Okay, I was able to see the pics that time. Your set up looks good. Are the plants real or fake? Getting a humidity guage would be a good idea. the temps seem fine. How long have you had the frogs and do you know if they are wild caught? that would make a big difference. Also, the only other thing I can think of would be aggression between the two. There are people on this forum who keep White's I wish they would join in with some help. Have you tried doing a Google search for a care sheet?

yeah I have a care sheet and I think I have read everything on the internet about whites. I also got a book off line called white's and white-lipped treefrogs by r.d. Bartlett. If its about white's I read it. lol

sorry forgot to answer your questions. The top plants up in the corners are real the rest are artifical. I have had them appox. a month now. Got one from a pet store and one from a reptile show. They seem to like each other, some times they will sleep next to each other.
I just worry about all my pets to much. I drive my daughter nuts. I work nights so the first thing I do when I get home is ck on my frogs. Sometimes I'm lucky and can see them awake for alittle while.
I think my fish are jealous of the frogs now, cause I have to walk by the fish tank to get to the frogs and they know (before frogs) they would get fed first. lol
