:I wish to own a breeding colony of Red Eye Teee Frogs.

:I was thinking of 4 females and 8 males to keep the ratio of 2 males for ea. female. The b*tches are picky. I was wondering if a room that is 11 ft. by 12 ft. by 10 ft. high would be big enough for 12 RETF's??

:Also, I plan to use an ultrasonic humidifier.

:Does anybody now what I would cover the walls / floor / ceiling with so that the humidity won't ruin the room? Plastic maybe?
:
:How will I open the door with out squashing my frogs?

:Will it be hard to find the eggs?

:How will the frogs find the crickets/ maybe i'll hand feed them?

:Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!


Hmm......I personally think it's too big. Feeding would be a huge proble. They wouldn't be able to find it, even if you used bowls. And, if you use Amy's idea, make your ratio more like 3 males to one female. More competition is better.
