I bought an Exo Terra Fogger, I don't know what kind of dish I can use to keep the water in that won't get used up very fast and that my frog won't go in to keep it safe from the heat. It says of course to use one of their water dishes, but anyone have any ideas on a less expensive way of doing it? If anyone does use on of these and possibly has pictures or anything of it that would be greatly appreciated because I also want to make sure I have it set up correctly.


Thank you to whoever replies to this!

Foggers have a bad habbit of electrocuting things... like frogs sitting in water. If you set this up, make sure that the frog has no access to the water whatsoever! Another thing is to, if possible, put it on a timer, so it's not running all day. If the dish runs out of water the device will burn out and you'll spend a ton of money replacing the parts or the product. I had one, but it really didn't do what I thought it would, and it used up water fast.

You can encase the water supply in something made of real small spaced wire caging material so the froggies won't get shocked. Also good idea on the timer..

Well the one I bought has a bar that gauges the water level and it shuts off when the water goes below this bar. thanks for the tip about the wiremesh encasing.

wouldn't that be good to heat water & make fog.
if it was encased & a powerhead to move the water so it doesn't get to hot in any one spot?
I was going to order one & I was told that was a good idea if there was plenty of water, but noone said anything about shocking anything. Ow...
