and we’re building her a tank that’s half land and half water.
She's adorable! I love whites tree frogs little smiles.
Paludarium? That's what Timtam has. I was intending to get Timtam some friends, but fell in love with the babies and obviously I can't put them in with her. I'm sure Timtam would enjoy herself but as for Oreo and Kitkat... well, maybe not.
Bioactive setups are amazing, my frogs have been so much more active since I set theirs up. Sadly, they're not to common in Australia.
Bioactive enclosures aren’t common in Australia? That’s strange. Every single set up we have is bioactive - whether it be our lay bins or even a pretzel container housing a mantis - they’re all bioactive. I couldn’t imagine having to clean our tanks every month with the amount that we have. And no, we’re not doing a paludarium. We scored a really old tank off of a friend of ours and it’s about 30/35 gallons; tall. So we’re just going to keep it layed down the way it was meant to because the tank thankfully has enough height for them. I would say a little under half of it will be water and the other half land. It’s going to take a little while to complete since we’re using this stuff called hydrolon to grow moss around all sides of the tank - which requires us siliconing all of the glass expect the front, super gluing the hydrolon to it, and then pressing in the moss seeds/spores and waiting for it to grow and establish.
Can you post more pictures of your paludarium? They’re amazing, I would love to do one of those one day but that’s further down the line when we get our reptile room completed and can comfortably add to our collection/breeding projects.
I'd love an aquatic frog tank! Unfortunately, there are no aquatic frogs available in AustraliaHere’s my African clawed frog tank (40 gal, five frogs):

They just had some babies and I wound up with two froglets. I’m still in the process of setting their tank up. It’s pretty much empty right now, aside from a few plants, but I’ll upload a pic when I get the decorations and stuff in!
All non-domestic animals that aren't native to Australia are illegal. Excepting fish, no non-native reptiles, amphibians etcetera. Which sucks. You need a license to own any wildlife too, so not many people keep reptiles or amphibians because of license costs.Aquilist are they illegal to keep there? I know they’re illegal in some states in the USA because they’re an invasive species (due to irresponsible pet owners who released them into the wild). Luckily I live up north and they’re allowed here! Or do they just not stock them in pet stores in Australia?
Your Axolotls are adorable! I love axolotls, definitely need to set up a tank at some stage, if my parents would allow another tank... probably notWell, my setups are a little bit different and new. I’ve got a 29 gallon and 37 gallon with axolotls. Both of them have the same layout/design. I’m going to add moss balls as soon as my LFS gets more in. The 29 gallon holds 2 4” lavender melanoid axolotls and the 37g holds 2 4” wild axolotls. My goal for today is to clear out and redo my 36g bowfront for my 3 new axolotls coming Wednesday. Those are a copper and 2 leucistic. The 36g is going to be my attempt at slightly more natural. I just need more plants.

I love it! What plants are in there? I personally dislike the bare-bottom look, but it does make cleaning easier.
