Ive never really been into frogs(more of a snake guy) but my fiance decided she wanted a pair of big eyed tree frogs when we were at the show in westwego. I reluctantly bought them knowing that i dont know much about them. I cant seem to find much info online.
I have them in a 10 gallon aquarium with a screen top. Ive glued some clear plastic material on the top to help hold in humidity. Ive got them on shredded coconut husk, the kind you buy in a block and it expands. Theyve got some fake plants and we plan to provide some real ones in the near future. I keep the enclosure temp at about 75f. we spray it down at least twice a day. lighting has been just the light from the dining room. Its using pretty dark in there most of the day. Ive thrown some gut loaded crickets in there and also some meal worms but i cant get the little guys to eat. They just dont seem to be interested. We've had them for about a week now.


SO what am i doing wrong? Is it too early for them to eat as far as new enclosure or do they need some daylight or uvb? What can i do better for these frogs. I dont wanna see them die because i failed to do the right thing. Any help would be great. Thanks
