:hi Guys !! Im new to frogs. Im currently thinking of buying 2 tree frogs as pets, most likely to be either GTF or WTF. A few questions i'll like to ask ... 1) Is it allright to keep tree frogs together in an enclosure?(can i place GTF and WTF in the same enclosure?) 2) What do they usually feed on? what should i let them eat? Their main food? will Earthworm be fine? Crickets? etc 3) what substrate to use? normal potting soil? peat moss? sand? 4) Is a reptile light needed ?? Basking light etc. Thanks alot in advance


Hello. You can't keep gtf and wtf together. Get one or the other. I personally like Whites. Just get one, he doesn't need a "buddy" At LEAST a 20 high, though a 29 would be better, and bigger than that would be great! If you plan on using real plants (pothos, snake plant, peperomia, dracaena) use organic soil with NO pesticides or fertilizers, and none of those tiny styrofoam bits. Mix that with Bed a Beast, or Eco Earth. You can use a layer of gravel on bottom of tank, covered by a piece of screen (this will help if your prone to over watering, which most people are) Have some large climbing braches and a large, but shallow water dish. Set everything up first so you can monitor temperature and humidity levels before you get frog. That will all depend also on what you get. Main food is crickets, lightly dusted 1-2xs a week with calcium. I suggest you search lots of care sheets also. Good luck!
