:NOW, here are the 2 options I have:
:- a 1/5 gallon hex with an underground filter
:- a 2 gallon rectangular tank

a 5 gallon tank would be better. but 2 gallon is fine for now i guess, i wouldnt add a filter, they don't like much current in their water

:Also, I've heard to fill the tank up with an inch of air at the top, OR fill only 3 inches with water, OR make a split land/water habitat.

Fill it to the top and make sure u have a tight lid

:Finally, I've been told to use gravel, OR sand, OR river rocks.
don't use sand, use gravel that the frog can't eat. and Add maybe 1 or 2 river rocks for hiding, and a plant, or a cave type thing, they need to hide.
