Substrate and Water Needs:

What should come from a bottle that has been out of the fridge for more then 24 hours. Fire belly toads need at lest 2 third water in there tank.

Lighting and UVB:

No lighting is really needed. They say natural light is better but light bulb don’t kill them, personally i don’t worry that much about it.

Temperatures and Humidity:

The water can be heated if you would like. I like to use the heater, i find they are more active then. Also heaters help with breeding. Some say that the tank should be misted, well if you have allot of water (like 2 thirds of the tank water) then misting is not needed.

Heating and Equipment:

This to adds should have a place to rest ( like land) hiding places etc.. Heating well like i said it s optional. but i do like to heat my tank.

You must remember that the cage you provided is their home! So make it good. Hiding places both land and water etc.. The limit is 5 gallon per toad. The toads are social and there for should be kept in pairs or more.

Carnivorous

Description of Diet:

This toads like crickets or an size, meal worms ( although they should only be a treat) and flyless fruit flies are good for younger toads.
This toads should be feed about 4 crickets ( or whatever) a day. also Babbie guppies can be feed too.

Supplements, Nutrition and Usage:

Special powder can be used, not daily but once a week, it’s not a must though.

Maintenance:

Tank should be cleaned every 3-6 month es, and water should be changed 25% a week,

Some Words on this Species:

Fire belly toads skin is toxic and there for should not be kept with any other animals. And always wash your hands!
fire belly toads will eat anything that can fit into there mouth so watch out with little toads. Fire belly toads are great and are a wise choose for beginners and hobbyists
