why do you want a treefrog? to watch during the day? to scare your family/friends? redeyes look cool?
redeyes are nocturnal and very secretive. not very hardy. slow movers. the setup is different. some people have success, but most don't. why risk an expensive frog for your first if you don't know if something is wrong. get a white's first. then after 6 months or so with no problems, setup another tanks for a redeye after doing your research. then buy a redeye.
