Tree frogs can make great pets if you have a nice place to keep them. You should observe the environment you caught your frog in and duplicate it as closely as you can. Ideal would be a big glass aquarium. It should be filled 1/2 or 3/4 inches with water. It cannot be filled with tap or chlorinated water. This is because frogs breathe through their skin so any contaminants in the water will kill your frogs quickly. It's best if it is the water you caught your frog in or at least make sure its unchlorinated. Half of the aqarium should be filled 2 or 3 inches with grass. This will be like a jungle-gym to them. You may want to put a few water plants in. The plants should be from where you caught your new pet. This will make him feel at home.
