:your tank is too humid or too wet where the mushrooms bloomed. toads only need shallow water to sit in. don't mist the tank except to water the plants occasionally. how big is the tank anyway?

My plants are fake, so they don't really need to be watered at all. The tank is a ten gallon. We've got a fake bottom, and a tilt to try and create a gradient. I only douse the soil on the low side, and mist when it starts to look dry on the top soil. Other than that, they like to bathe in the water dish and make doodies in there (makes cleaning a breeze! Toilet trained toads!)Oh yeah, and there's a heating pad at one end. Most of the time there's a three to five degree difference between the ends, but I don't have any way to measure the humidity at this point.

The mushrooms are pretty cute, but they're already shriveling. If they're really big enough will the toads sit on them (ie use them as stools?)?
