Just set up a woodland terrarium (at least a 10-gallon size tank) with a moist soil substrate, some live plants for climbing, and a wide, shallow bowl of clean water for them to soak in. A full-spectrum fluorescent lamp, timed to go on during the day and off at night, will be helpful to grow the plants.
You will need plenty of small insects to feed them.

I agree with the last person that posted. I used moss or bark, shallow dish,plants to climb.when I first got him I had him in a plastic container (with vent holes) and a lid. It held heat well. Then switched to a ten gallon. Sqeekers, my peeper was one of my favorite pets:) . He would peep at every noise he heard. I do not suggest putting him outside though,tank temps can get too hot :( good luck with him
