I have recently been given a White's Tree Frog, which I am keeping in a well-planted 30 gallon terrarium. I have a couple of questions.
1) For bedding I am using a layer of topsoil, covered with dried green moss. I read that topsoil should only be used if it doesn't contain perlite or vermiculite (the soil I use has vermiculite). What is the reason for avoiding this substance? Is there a danger to the frog involved?
2) How moist should the terrarium be kept? It is screened on top, and allows for excellent ventilation... Should I mist daily? Currently I have just been keeping the moss damp.
3) Given that the topsoil is covered with a thick layer of moss, will I be able to normally clean the terrarium by replacing the moss, or will it be necessary to regularly replace the soil also? How frequently should the soil be replaced?
Any information on these items (or any general advice on White's Tree Frogs) would be greatly appreciated. The animal was given to me by a friend who didn't want it anymore, so I kind of went into the situation blind.
