thanks for the reply. I was thinking maybe a few cichlids,and a plecostomus. would that work? Also, should i be worried about the frog polluting the water?This is gonna be tricky because having two budgett's frogs together means one will try to eat the other but if that's the case you'd need a fish just as large even larger than the frog is when hes an adult (4-5 inches), and for one fish that size you'd need upwards of a 30-ish gallon tank if you can get your hands on it
I suppose your right. Cichlids would be a bad idea if they would stress out the frog, and vise versa.I wouldn't do it. Is it really worth stressing out both animals? Frogs are always hungry and cichlids can get pretty territorial. The frog will produce about as much waste as a small goldfish. You should also research whether or not this frog requires a brumation period.
The environmental triggers wouldn't work so close to a body of water. I'd ditch the whole idea.
A 10gal filled roughly halfway with a floating turtle dock is fine for them. But I'd you want them to live a healthy and long life you have to brumate them. You can't skimp out on that. I'd you can't provide the proper care in that regard, don't get the animal. A tubberware bin should be fine for brumation (filled with clean dirt of course).Darn I'm trying to see how he can keep the budgets frog (if he doesn't have it already)
before we call it quits just yet could a 7.5g water and 5g dry tank work?
