Most of my tanks are a work in progress, as not all the frogs have gotten their chytrid treatment yet, and I need to be able to rip them down when I'm ready to do that. These aren't all the tank, but most of them are here, so I hope you enjoy the pictures


This is a 15 gallon tank that I started on a while ago. It'll be for my male crestie soon.



This is my Budgett's Frog 36x18x18 Exoterra tank. It's a work in progress, but Bridget is happy with the improvements so far.



This is my African Fat Tail's 18" Cube Exoterra Terrarium. Her substrate is a mixture of sphagnum moss and coco-fiber. She has a 60w ceramic heat emitter and a 10.0 UVB that stands a few inches above the tank.
She is a rescue and has Fatty Liver Disease. I've had her for about 1-1/2 months now, and she has started eating Repta-Aid for me, and today was the first day she decided to explore her tank on her own.




This is my Red Eyed Tree Frog terrarium. It is a 40 gallon breeder tank that I got for free from the pet shop, because it had a smashed bottom. I removed the smashed bottom and had a second piece of glass cut not quite as wide and put screen along the side for ventilation. Just the one frog in here so far, but I plan on adding some more to it eventually.




This is my American Green Tree Frog terrarium. It is also a 40 gallon breeder tank. I really love the lock I bought for this tank. I picked up at Home Depot, it cost $20, but it was worth it.


This is my Crested Gecko Vert. It is also a 40 gallon breeder tank, that houses my female and male cresties. This male will be getting a 30 gallon eventually, my BF is borrowing it until our Arowanna gets a bit bigger.

The large branch in the tank is from a Manitoba Maple Tree (hardwood). It is attached with some GE Silicone II for Windows & Doors (Black) and Great Stuff (Black label can). Dry Coco-Fiber is packed around the black silicone.

This is my female Crestie. When I bought her I was told that she was a "Lavender Harlequin with Dalmatian Spots" morph. She was abandoned at the pet shop by her first owner. She is a very calm and sweet girl and she really loves crickets.



This is my adult Fire Belly Toad tank. It is a ExoTerra Terraium 36x18x18, half land and half water.

Land area with close up of the dirt layers.


This is my baby Fire Belly Toad tank, I have 1 baby FBT, he is about the size of my little finger nail. He lives in a 12"-Cube Exoterra.



This is my Green & Black Dart frog tank (auratus)
It is an Exoterra 36x24x18. There are 5 frogs in this tank.

This tank has a false bottom made with Egg crate.

Not the best picture of them, but it's an old one, I had to take them out of the tank for some reason



This is my Whites tree frog tank. It is currently housing two frogs, "Norbert" the big fat one, and "Carlbert" the littler guy. I'm pretty sure both are females. Norbert I got from petsmart and was badly infected with parasites. Calrbert I got while on holiday, we rescued him from a crappy little pet shop. He was kept on sphagnum moss & sand and was brown when I bought him. Not 10 minutes after bringing him home, he was bright green. Carlbert I find to be a bit moody, and his colours will change often from brown to green, but Norbert is a very happy little (fat) tree frog and is always bright green.

even though you have to touch bugs :P
The bug touching part does get easier I promise. All though, I am still phobic of spiders and my BF still has to "save me" from them.

Exoterras are my favourites. I want to turn all my tank into front opening enclosures. They are much more user friendly

Do the Darts require that much room or is it a personal preference?
Nice tanks! You have a bit of an investment there.
There are two 36x18x18 Exo Terras on CL I'm watching. I'm hoping for the price to keep dropping as I'm always looking for a bargin

Nope, their plants do though. The original owner of them had 7 in the Exoterra 18"cube. I started out with 6 and had them in a 20 gallon until I had enough saved up for the exo that they are in now. I just found out the other day that Exoterra has a 36"Lx36"Hx18W that should be available soon. So I will be buying that for them, the FBT will be getting the darts current tank, and I may put my snake in the FBT tank. Haven't decided yet.

How much are those exo's going for on CL? I paid $250 new for mine. Don't wait too long for them, someone else might scoop them!

I bought the 36x24x18 Exo Terra with the stand for $100.
The same guy had the 36x18x18 Exo Terra for !00 and I (sadly to say) passed on it.

well, that is still a good deal. It's a good size tank, and you can't beat the front opening doors

You are so right...especially as I "age".
I bought an Exo Terra 18x18x18 with the light hood for $30 on Sunday.
Sweet deal!
