Another new 10 gallon firebelly toad vivarium set up =)
Wanted to make my 20 gallon back into a fish tank so I moved the 3 toads (oliver, cloe and bruce lol) to the 10 gallon. They seem a lot more come and not spooked as much. I think the height of the 20 gallon with no big plants and bright florescent light make them a little nervous. I still need to get a background and maybe the smallest coconut hut then ill be done. Well here it is =)
checking out his new ornament....

Thanks everybody! And Lainey yes i know what you mean, but really i don't even have to touch the crickets lol. I buy 2 dozen about twice a week usually, put some dust on them, dump them in the tank and put the screen back on and no cricket touching for me =) Alot of people say to remove the uneaten ones but I leave them in there and I see them finding one walking a few days later and they snatch it up so its all good, and I remove any that died in the water (after I watch them for 20 minutes getting out the first dumb ones that try to commit suicide by jumping in the water right away) haha!

He/she is gorgeous!

It makes me really want one but I know absolutely nothing about toads. Do you get to handle him? Or is he like fish - look only?

*edit* I see that there are two! I change my "he/she" to a "they" :)

Firebelly girrl 04-24-2007 07:54 PM

Lol there are actually 3 :D The girl was chilling on the land part the whole time I was taking pics! If you look you can see her chubby self :) The 2 in the water/ on the ornament are males (you can tell by their so cute chirping/mating call they do every night!!)
Nope their not handable, 1. The toxins on them make your hand itchy! 2.Stuff on OUR hands is not good for them either!
but their super easy to take care of as they don't require heat or humidity or anything, just a lot of clean water and some crickets to be happy :)
