Tiger Leg Monkey Tree Frog
Tank Size- A tank size of about 10 gallons for one and 5 gallons for each additional frog is
good. So, 2 in a 15gallon , 3 in a 20 gallon, etc. The tank must be a tall or 'high' tank, because they are arboreal.
Food- They will eat half sized crickets, larger fruit flies, small wax worms, etc. The food should
be dusted with a mineral supplement about every 10 days.
Temperature and Lighting- The temperature should be kept around 77*F with a slight drop at night.
A regular bulb or heat buld can achieve those temperatures. The watt depends on the size of tank.
Humidity- Humidity should be kept around 70-80%, because they are form the South American rainforests.
Tank Decor- Bromeliads, pothos, and other plants are good for this species. Keep the tank
heavily planted. Branches are also a good investment for them, so they can climb on them and on the galss. A background in
needed on three sides of the tank. A good background is cork bark or aquarium paper background.A good bedding for all frogs
is bed-a-beast. I reccomend this, because it's inexpensive, pleasing to the eye, safe, and pothos can grow in it.
Breeding- Breeding takes place like that of red-eyes. They amplex while in a rain chamber and
eggs shortly follow.
Tadpoles- Tadpoles should be cared for like tropical fish. In 77*F water, fed on treopical fish
food, spirulina, algae pellets, etc.
