This is only temporary since i obviously need a bigger setup. If there are any problems let me know please. Also, i am going to be adding a big piece of grape vine and some more artificial pothos to cover the back pane, thats where he likes to sleep.

It looks like a good starter for them, but I would have a bigger water dish.

Also the lighting seems really bright, but maybe it's from the flash? They don't need any lighting so just if you need it for heat, otherwise I don't even light my tank.

Are your temps and humidity good? That's the biggest thing.

Here's a good caresheet. http://amphibiancare.com/frogs/caresheets/redeyedt reefrog.html

temps with the light on are in the high 70s to about 80. i think it was just glare, the pic was taken on a cell phone.. humidity stays around 60-65%, sometimes climbing a bit.. but according to you its ok. the water dish is big enought for the one frog that i have, but i will look into getting a bigger one. As soon as my girl gets her camera data cable ill be able to get better pics.

Good news is i think he finally ate a couple crickets. i could count at least 4 before i went to bed now there are only 2 i can count (i hope the rest are not hiding.) and also, i found a little slimy brown thing on a leave, which im certain is a frog turd!! YAY!! haha ill keep you posted. he was very active last night, from the time i went to bed until i woke up. im hoping he is getting used to it. thanks again for your help ragdoll, your a real blessing man.. thank you..

If you can root some more pothos and let it grow for a few weeks outside with good lighting, you can replace the fake in the back with live. More live plants will help keep your humidity where it's at and you'll only have to mist every couple days or so.

If you want to be able to keep track of the crickets a little more easily, put a chunk of potato in the corner of the tank for the crickets to nibble on. Available food tends to keep them from hiding quite so much too and out in the open for lil frog to find. The brown slimy thing is exactly what you think... always good to find suring that settling in process. Good sign that they are eating and getting a bit more comfortable.

I hope that all continues to progress well for you.

On a side note... try to keep all your questions and such concerning this frog, in one thread. It just makes it easier for everyone answering your questions, if all the information is in one place
