:Hello all,
:I was wondering(Sorry I tried to find posts about this already).
:I hate cleaning so much yucky, water and such. Could I have an absolute, terrestrial environment being VERY moist. Setup ideas would be great. Could I use moss as an entire substrate, bed-a-beast? I hand feed my little guys, so crickets getting lost isn't a problem.

:Thanks all,
:Steven


Hey Steven,

Good question, but I say no. B. orientalis is native to rice paddies of Asia where it is semi-aquatic. Stick to the hlaf and half stuff. I may make a new fire-bellied toad tank with some of the water plant that black jungle sells and some cork curls. Should look nice.

Derek
