I recently found a spring peeper in my garbage, of all places. I decided to keep him and bought a ten gallon tank, as well as a large water dish and some fake plants and things for him to climb on and crawl under. He escaped the first night, but since then I've modified his tank and all seems to be well on that front. However, over the last couple of weeks, I've noticed a fine layer of white almost silky mold growing on and around the wood in his tank. I removed everything from the tank, scrubbed it all down with boiling hot water, changed out the Exo Terra and within a few days, the mold is making a reappearance. I'm sort of at a loss as to what to do about the situation. I'm pretty sure the mold won't actually harm my frog, but it probably isn't good for me... I've been reading about pill bugs and that sort of thing, and I think that might be the way to go, but will they actually get rid of the mold, or just keep it from growing in the first place? As you can probably tell, I'm new to the frog world, but I'm trying my best! Any help you could give me would be appreciated!


A wise frog once told me "It's not easy being green"...

It's nothing to worry about, happens all the time. Just mix up the coco with a fork a little. Allow the top layer to dry out keeping enough humidity of course.
If you can get your hands on methylene blue that'll get rid of it but no worries really. I have mushrooms growing in mine. Where there is UV there is growth.


Nature has no mercy, people have the option.
