    Default An Empty 12x12x12" Exoterra...

    Can I can keep anything in it? I love poison dart frogs, but from what I've read they need more space. I hate having an empty tank, and I'd love to find something to keep in it. My only idea so far is a mantis...but the hubbs doesn't like insects too much!

    Maybe if you show him pictures of an orchid mantis he'll change his mind. Those things are stunning!

    Orchid mantids are also pretty darned hard to keep as far as feeding and what not, unfortunately! I'd have dozens if not, they're so awesome.

    What about one E. agricolae?

    Beautiful yes, but definitely hard to keep from what I've read!

    I love E. Agricolae, but I can never seem to find one for sale (when I have gecko money, that is!) I guess I should just wait...it's not exactly shipping weather here anyway.

    Are there any amphibians that can live in a tank this size?

    Don't know about amphibians, but you could consider P. klemmeri, L. williamsi or mourning geckos.

    You'd be ok with bumblebee toad (melanophryniscus stelzneri) in there, especially if heavily planted.

    Thank you! I really wanted a frog or toad, but haven't had any luck finding one that can be kept in such a small enclosure. From what I just read about these guys, the little exoterra should be plenty of space for a pair. Now to set up the tank, and find a few for sale!

    I've got 3 in my tank, another 2 waiting to go in after quarantine. They really are fabulous little toads!
    Oh, and don't be surprised to see them climb to the top of the tank, they're quite adventurous!

    Mourning geckos can be kept in a colony in that size tank. They are quite communal and fun to watch. They are little escape artists though if all of the holes arn't sealed.
