Question Newbie to amphibians!!!! Questions.....

Hey Everyone! I was at the pet store yesterday getting feeder fish for my eels when I happened past the reptile/amphibian section. I saw that they had baby green tree frogs. How cute they are! I have an empty 10 gallon tank & am thinking about buying 1 or 2. I have no clue what they need or how to take care of them though. Can anyone tell me what I need to buy & how to set up a tank????

Thanks

I keep my pair of green trees in a 10 gallon with a large shallow water dish and lots of fake plants for hiding places. I use carpeting for substrate because things like mulch or bed-o-beast tend to stick badly to amphibians - plus I don't want them accidentally eating it while chasing crickets. I mist them down daily, it is important to make sure they don't dry out. Their diet is appropriately sized crickets. Frogs can usually eat anything that'll fit in their mouths but you don't want to go that big. Green trees are fun and very low maintenance. They are especially neat if you get a male that calls every night. Quack... quack... quack...

Becki, thanks for pulling that up. That picture is definitely cute. Rav is there anyway to know if you are getting a male?

They are not sexually dimorphic - at least I've never seen a difference between males and females, luck of the draw.
