Sounds like you have a cool setup coming your way. You probably don't have to worry so much about water area. Seems that these guys don't spend much time in it except to wade in it at night.

Check out this one... I think it looks great
http://talkto.thefrog.org/index.php?action=vthread&forum=7&topic=289

It's a 30 gallon tank... but looks like 15 of it is allocated to just the substate alone.

This is one of my personal favorites

I've never had a vivarium, but I have read about them many times in the past. If you have time to invest into one, then totally do it! They look rad. But from what I read, the average Joe doesn't like to maintain it after awhile. The guys who do love them, have Fire Bellied Toads.

:Hi all! I'm new to this forum, I usually browse the field herping forum and post on the Canadian forums, but this is my first time coming here. You will probably hear a lot from me from now on though, lol.

:Anyway, I've been contacted by someone who has a pair of White's tree frogs that she doesn't have space for anymore, and she just had a baby, so she can't really care for them right now. She called me the other night, and it seems she wants to get rid of the little guys ASAP. So...I am going to pick them up tomorrow! I'm really excited, but I've never had experience keeping frogs before. I have been researching these awesome guys like crazy the past few days, so I think I am prepared. She is giving me the tank and everything too, but I am thinking of setting up one of my old 30 (or so) gallon tanks for them. I was thinking of two inches of gravel filled one inch with water, then a couple of inches of bed-a-beast substrate over top of it. I was going to glue some cork bark to the back wall (what glue would be safe?) and then have pothos growing out of the ground, with sticks and fake vines all over.

:Now for the part I am most curious about; I have a small fountain, that would look awesome in a vivarium and it has a fair sized basin at the bottom. I was thinking I could bury this down into the substrate until the 'pond' part is just above the top of the substrate, then run the (insulated!!!) cord out along the back corner and wrap some plastic ivy around it to conceal it. Would this be safe?

:Can you guys please post pics of your set-ups?

:Thanks!
:James
:PS Can anyone recommend any websites on the care of these frogs? I've been reading a lot, but I want to be as prepared as possible.
