like I said if this is your first frog, don't get a redeye. you won't get the viewing pleasure you think you will. the frog is not active when you are. all you will see is the frog folded up in the corner with his 'colors' hidden. for any pet the tank should be setup before you buy it. that is really just common sense. get the experimenting with temp/humidity/setup done before the frog is in the tank. why risk the animals health while you are messing around with stuff? if you have never kept a frog I strongly suggest you get a white's first. they are more active and tolerant anyway and more aggressive eaters too.
