WTFs are very tough as amphibians go, I wouldn’t worry too much about humidity as long as you have a water bowl in there. I would suggest however that you get a full-spectrum fluorescent lamp because it helps stimulate the frogs’ activity and makes them look better... also it helps plants to grow... Time it to go on during the day and off at night. It is much better that incandescents because those give off too much heat.

Actually what I had in mind was a white fluorescent, the kind that simulates daylight, because that tyis best for helping plants to grow... don’t worry, if the frogs seem OK now then they will be fine, WTFs are very hardy.

Awesome... sounds like they are healthy then... but please consider using a full spectrum white fluorescent during the day, especially if you want to grow plants.
