I have recently acquired a few juvenile Hyla arborea, which I am going to keep in my shed. These are something I had toyed with for a while... I weakened and the fun begins. I found information about these rather lacking, so following one of the breeders advice I provided ( in my opinion) a lovely secure tank with moss, leaves and bark. All was well until I added a second group.:eek:

I had placed them all in a tank, with a top opening lid. I had not appreciated that they where expert climbers, they moved very fast as soon as they lid was touched they could jump in all sorts of interesting directions..... Providing them food became very traumatic for me. I feared a mass escape.

I then ordered a terrarium, with a lovely front opening door. After a few hours putting it together I discovered the lock was missing and that it was far bigger than I expected. Today I finished it off ( the lock had arrived) with a lovely branch, ivy, moss , a small fern and ' Mind your own business' ( Soleirolia). The frogs where then transferred with minimal distress to me and them :D

They are so far being fed fruit fly, woodlice, white worm and small earthworm

If I remember, a blue frog is typically caused by lack of yellow pigment in the skin, making them blue. Same thing with the White's tree-frog

Yep, a lovely bright blue. I don't know why they go this colour (though it's genetic rather than a lack of carotenes in their diet) but they do stay that colour throughout their life.

    Hey y'all, recently my juvenile axolotl's tail has been floating and can swim down but his tail lifts to an angle and I believe that it is stressing him out. He gets in between his plants to balance himself and I am cleaning out the bottom of the tank with my baster. I believe I overfed him and he also may have eaten many air bubbles. He's been like this for nearly 1 1/2 days.

  • MVM1991:
    Should be. Hot glue is good when dry I believe, just don't let it get too hot and you should be good. Most super glues are good as well just watch out for flume warnings

    hello, I am currently tubbing my axolotl due to cycling the tank. I have read different answers on how many times to do a 100% water change a day when tubbing. Some say once and some say twice. I just want to actually ask and get answers for myself. Thank

  • Murk:
    As often as you need to keep the water clean! Since you´re cycling, I assume you have a test kit. Just test a few times to see how long it takes for your ammonia to go up, and as soon as it does, change the water.

  • Kwags:
    Yes,I have the master test kit. Thank you! So just test the water in the tub that my axolotl is in now to gauge off of for changing?

    That´s the most accurate. Depends on the size of the tub etc. - you just want to make sure the water is always clean
