The water dish should be changed weekly

You can keep the same water dish for many years. The water in the dish is best changed daily.

Don't blame the question when you're the stupid one.

unless you can find some CB spring peepers, those tiny frogs could beneficiate of an aestivation period of about 2 monthes at 54F, make sure you dont feed them anything 2 weeks before the aestivation period



I've had this spring peeper for over 4 years..!

FroGiZ:

You keep Spring Peepers year-round? What does your set-up look like? Do you get breeding and tadpoles? If so, what do you do with them?

Yeah I've caught 3 spring peepers summer 2007 or 2008.. don't even remember. I caught em via their croaking so all males sadly..
I've put em in aestivation every winter, only one remaining but he's damn fat and still croaking every now and then
I have them in 12x12x18 exo terra with water dish, bowl fed, roach and beans weevils, some FF but I haven't noticed if he actually get em.
frog room temp, 70-80% humidity id say.. no nozzle in his cage but cork bottom.. these guys are tough but water dish is a must
I have heavy foliage and he always wander around.
I can tell he likes the setup cause I NEVER see him on glass.
