Really nice green skin on the treefrog in the front while the one in back isn't bad either. Really nice looking animals.

those frogs are really sweet!!! just a question though...i have the same green bowl as you do...i was wondering if yours smells weird. I clean mine everyday and it just has this nasty odour about it...not sure what its from....i clean it with surface disinfectant deodorizer from flukers that is designed for frogs. It says that it safely and effectively destroys odour-causing bacteria and eliminates mold, mildew, and fungus. So i am doubting that the bowl is dirty....just wondernig if its the bowl!

Go to the store and smell a new unused bowl for comparison. It's a very good chance that you are smelling the plastic.

The sterlite plastic containers smell for example. I'm use to most plastic smells and can deal with them, but not these.

Yes, the plastic and the manufacturing process used for "these" bowls are such that they can absorb.

I have some. I'll have to see (smell more correctly) if they have an odor, esp. mud.

I love how my frog picture thread turned into a conversation about plastic! Well, I have smelled mine on occasion and I would have to agree that its most akin to a mud flavor (er...scent) I have never cleaned mine with disenfectant, although i do have some of the flukers stuff too. I usually just dump the water into my plants and rinse with regular tap water, making sure to dry thouroughly before replacing. Works good so far. No wierd smells.

Yeah, it did go off on a tangent didn't it?!

I had meant (and thought I had) to say that I really liked the 1st picture. It really caught a moment that we see our frogs do in our tanks, but don't see as many pictures of.

The second picture is also nice. It is more typical, I think of images we see.

Absolutely wonderful! They are adorable!

i love the photos! ive been recently debating whether or not i wanted to put the flowers you pictured in my tank, (im drawing a complete blank on the name) and you just convinced me to do so!
and as i was reading this thread, i had this crazy mental picture of a group of frog lovers bombarding a petstore, smelling bowls.....i think we should try it sometime

If I'm not mistaken, utopia781, those flowers are from a bromeliad.

Yeah, they look fantastic, especially the contrast in colour between the bright red flowers and the bright greed frogs.

sorry i didnt respond before, i didnt see that anyone had replied to this thread in awhile! you're correct, its a bromeliad. the plant is doing fine but the flowers have since died and are drying up. i dont know enough about the plants to know if they will be flowering again or not, but my frogs still love to hang out on the leaves and tuck themselves in!

You better water the ground often to keep the plants well nutritioned; don't worry about making it too humid for the frogs. Green Tree Frogs are used to drastic changes in the climate, including temperature/humidity, since they do spand from Ontario all the way down to Florida, on the East Coast at least. If you want your plants to stay alive, keep the ground moist. I've had this problem with my frogs' setup in the past, which is why I forewarn!
