    Calling all White's Tree Frog Owners

    With the tree frog stock gone in just a few days , im sure there's alot of tree frogs owners here.

    come and share your setups guys. tips and tricks on taking care of this awesome critter is also appreciated! ( Feeding, supplements , maintenance etc )

    here's mine ..

    A home to a pair of young white's tree frog ( 4cm-5cm ).



    Just added the fake vine.. They loved it. and crickets hanging around the vine will never last long. makes hunting easier.





    Nothing much inside. Some wood , small exo terra water dish and plants that im not sure of. Can recommend some small and hardy ground plants?


    substrate is leca ( drainage purposes ) , sphagnum moss (retain moisture, humidity will be just nice and not too dry ) and top most layer is coco peat ( coco peat/fibers are the safest if accidentally ingested by the frogs, so lesser chance of impaction, which can cause death )



    The only supplement i have for them.. for now.. anyone knows where to find vitamins for them ? eg by zoomed etc



    them !




    Will upgrade to a bigger setup once they are full adults.


    cheers.

    Re: Calling all White's Tree Frog Owners

    good set up....... bro.... exo terra 30 by 30 by 45 huh.......
    hi there, me no expert, but for ground plants, for such set up, begonias, calathea, jewel orchids , setginella should be well suited. u can get this from nusery in singapore...cheap too.airplants should be good too, but dont place them too close direct light source. air plants must be constantly misted. not too much misting, if not the leaves will slowly die out, make sure no big drops of water stuck in between leaves. these plant do not need soil.

    How long u have been keeping them??

    Nice and freshing set up...
    If you giving them crickets, don't dump too many as the crickets will eat the nice plants you have.
    Just some experiences that I had faced, my Orchids plant and flowers in my viva setup been wiped out by the crickets after I dumped all in one sort cos I had 4 White Tree from that time.

    Re: Calling all White's Tree Frog Owners

    got a scare last 2 nights ago. Discovered this neon green spots.



    One forum says, its "neons spots of death" , spots indicating serious problem with tree frogs and death usually follows days after .

    The other forum however, says that it is nothing to worry about, maybe just some minor irritation of the skin .

    i observed it for days and.. it comes and goes.. My frog sleeps and gets awake at the right time , eats very well, active at hunting crickets etc..

    i think i will just keep on observing.. anyone with similar "neon green spots" can share your views here.

    *** hunting mode ****



    Anyone knows where to get vitamins/dewormers/calcium powders for frogs? accepts paypal and ships to Singapore at reasonable price? share!



    cheers

    Re: Calling all White's Tree Frog Owners

    One source of calcium powder which you can get easily is cuttle-fish bone available in bird-shop, ask for those for Parrots, Budgies and Parakeets, another is human supplements from Pharmacy which are more expensive.

    Nice set-up, can pm me where you bought your WTFs?
    ...I love rubies too ...

    Re: Calling all White's Tree Frog Owners

    well i came across calcium powder for reptiles, which i guess might be applicable to frogs too, at petmart - serangoon north ave 2 blk 151.10 dollars per small container. i guess can last a month depending on usage.

    As the Hagen exo terra products , just key in Hagen exo terra products in google.

    Yes. Pm me.

    Spots on White's Tree Frogs are nothing to worry about. Do note that Litoria caerulea are considered basking frogs and require more UVB than your usual frogs. You need lights that emit both UVA & UVB for optimal long term health. For recommendations just pm me.
