 How about a firebelly toad

Can I fit 1 in a 5 gallon enclosure or should it be 10 gallons. I know it’s 4 gallons per toad but I was wondering if you have to have at least a ten gallon.

Firebellies are social creatures so I recommend keeping at least 2 (a pair if possible is the best, but it can be dificult to sex them). These should be provided with a 10 gallon tank at the minimum, but the larger the tank the better, because they are active creatures.

Sorry for the delay, I have been off the forum for a little while, but am always anxious to help. :-)

I wouldn’t recommend it because they are champion escape artists. Even though they lack toe pads, they are able to flatten their wet bellies against a glass wall and scale it with remarkable ease... so your best bet is a glass terrarium with a tight-fitting screen lid. Incidentally, they are semi-aquatic and like to divide their time between land and water, so I recommend a setup with a glasds divider (sanded smooth along the edges and set in with silicone sealant) like this one that I used for some newts:

Cool I’ve been thinking about getting a frog whether it be a tree frog or some species of toad. Since my mom won’t let me get a snake I want a leopard gecko, crested gecko, or some type of frog or toad. In your opinion which is the best?

Well, I’ve heard that leopard geckos are very easy to care for and are one of the few types of lizards that actually don’t mind being handled (but be careful not to grab them by the tail or it could break off). They now come in many different color varieties (albino, amelanistic, high orange, etc.) and need only a desert terrarium with some flat rocks or caves to hide in and a shallow bowl of clean water to drink... I’ve been thinking of getting one or two of them myself. They look to me like a very interesting type of animal that is also easy to keep.

Can 3 firebellys do well in a 10 gallon tank?

I guess so, but that they can be active, so would be the maximum number I would put in to avoid overcrowding them. Remember though, they are semiaquatic so the tank will have to include a water area; also it should be covered at all times to prevent escapes.

Would it be OK if I just caught bugs outside or do I have to buy crickets?

 Help with pricing and other stuff?!

I’m very interested in frogs and would love to start raising them, the only thing is.. I don’t know what kind of things to get for my fire belly toad that I am getting. So far I have a half and half tank.. Filter and some land. I don’t have a top yet.. Or any lighting fixtures or heat lights.. I’m trying to get the aquaterrium as good as possible at a low price as my dad doesn’t like spending lots of money on pets, because this was supposed to be a project that I promised to be cheap. Now, all I need to find out is how many watts the lighting fixtures should be and what kind of top to put on the top of the tank. Thanks :)

Lighting fixture should be a full-spectrum fluorescent (not incandescent, that’s too hot for them) to simulate daylight, set on a timer to go on in the morning, off at night. They like to bask under it.

Its not adviseable to catch them outside cause fbt are very sensitive to poisins and insectsides. And honestly a 10 gallon would work fine for 3 fbt but it would be pretty cramped.
