In Reply to: White's question? posted by hardmetalnc on April 20, 2003 at 16:08:40:

Hey dude,

I just got WTFs on Monday. 2 of them.
My background comes from Salt Water Reef tank, and a turtle tank.
I find that the maintenance on these frogs is a piece of cake compared to what I have to do with my other tanks. My guys are about 1 inch a piece in a 20 gallon tall setup.

The only daily thing I have to do right now is pick up the waste with some tweezers, and change out the water bowl.

The water does need to be treated/de-chlorinated. I boiled a few liters of water, then de-chlorinated. And I use those to re-fill the water once they're ready to go.

I toss in 5-8 cricketts every couple of days which are "shake-n-baked" with calcium powder. And I have a timer on the lighting.

:My girlfriend wants a frog. she has seen the white's and really likes them. I am a reptile person and know very little about keeping amphibians. I guess what i am asking is what do i need to know about keeping a white's? Maybe a web site with info on setting up a vivarium for them. I dont want to buy an animal and have it die because we dont know what we are doing. Thanks in advance for any help you guys can provide me with.

I recently met a couple of chicks who have these guys. They love them to death because of their "cute" factor. They've never had pets, and so far they've had them for a few years, and don't do much to the tank. They do a complete change of substrate every 8-12 weeks I think.

The only problem I have right now is ants eating leftover legs in the substrate from the cricketts I might not have seen, and wiping down the glass. When I wake up, I can see dragged bed-a-beast and frog tracks all over the glass :)

Fun guys to watch at night though.
