How many Firebellied Toads in a 5.5 Gallon

I have one firebelly living in a 5.5 Gallon tank with 2/3 water, 1/3 land and I'm wondering if its too small for a second.

Have you checked with your petstore? I have 4 firebellied toads in a 10 gallon tank and they are doing great. Lots of room, they have plants, a couple of little ponds and a heat lamp. Can you send a picture of your setup?

Two is fine in a 5.5. I actually had two in a 5 for oh two years I think and they did great.

wow I had no idea you could keep that many in a 5 gallon I have one at my house and I have been looking for something to occupy the space just so the tank is doing nothing but lay around. I might look into getting some Fire Bellies now. Since I have been wanting to look into getting some some time soon anyway.
What kind of environment should I get up for the lil guys inside the tank?

You can do lots of things. You need some water for them no matter what. You can get something that holds a big pool of water and just set that in there with lots of gravel. I did that for a while but you need to clean it up more.

At one point I just filled the tank it self with water and stuck more gravel on one side. That is a little hard to clean and you have to do it a lot.


Right now I have a tank full of water with a submissable water filter. The water in the tank is half full with a thick layer of gravel on the bottom. I tossed in a few plants, like two and got a giant rock that sticks out of the water for them to sit on. I also have this giant plat form thing that has suction cups on it. That sticks above the water and I put there food there. I think its about four or five inches long. I would need to take pictures for you.

Here is a link to the plat form thing:

I think mines smaller than the one in that picture but its just to give you an idea.

And the filter
But that is really only if you want to do a complex one. I will have to say though the complex cleaning is easier. I just use a suction tube meant for fish tanks. It cleans out all the gunk and nasty water over time. Than I put fresh water in! If you have questions let me know.

Thanks for the advise that sound like great info to start off on...I will probably try to set up the tank for them before I get the lil guys. So I will probably try to get started on things ASAP. But if I have any questions I will make sure to ask em to ya!

Two in a 5.5 is okay? Really? I've heard that its 10g for the first two and 5g extra for each additional one. I had my two in a 6 g. and then moved them to a 10 and they seem happier.. They swim all over the place and are more active. I figured they felt cramped, and now they have more water as well as more land so theyre not all in each others faces all the time.
