Hi all, I hope I'm not breaking any kind of forum ettiquette by posting this but I was hoping I could get some feedback on my new frog. My guy is a North American bullfrog. I wasn't planning on getting any new pets and I'm scrambling to learn what I can about proper husbandry. The internet has thoroughly confused me but a friend suggested I come here so please let me know how not to kill my frog.



This is the tank I've set up for him. It's a 40 gallon tank with a metal screen lid. The water is filtered and partially changed every couple of days. The land side has moistened ecofiber for substrate. I'm using a ceramic heater and a UVB bulb for light. The temperature is 80 degrees on the warm side and 70 in the water. It gets a little warmer on the rocks. The plants are fake but I put a little bit of java moss in the water to soak up nitrates.

He's eating well--mostly crickets and an occasional guppy. He completely ignores the earthworms and pinky mice I got for him. Does this look okay? Any advice for a beginner herper trying to house a not-so-beginner frog?
