Got a new little/big buddy tonight and i wanna build a really nice enclosure for him for a display in the living room. I was thinking about going some what semi aquatic (I know they don;t swim). or just doing a nice damp set up with a fogger or mister. Any advice? also what all bedding can i use? I know eco earth but is there anything else out there to make the display look better? wanna get some live plants for it and things.just want it to look really nice and for him to enjoy it

Coco Husk Fiber works really well. (Eco Earth, Bed a beast etc). Some Moss would work nicely as well with the Eco Earth and live plants will bring everything out.

As far as foggers go you can always convert a cool mist humidifier.

The pacman will uproot and destroy plants. Loose sphagnum works as well as sheet moss. I used coco fiber and sheets of cork bark too.

Be careful if you're going to use spaghnum moss as it posses a impaction hazard if ingested.

well, i HAD a pacman frog. It fed well on dubias, crickets and mouse pinkies, needless to say that he grew well. The temperature was set right and it sure had enough bedding to dig in. The only reason possible, as far as my knowledge goes, could be that the water was not dechlorinated. I must have missed that memo and didn't pay attention to it..

That's why i think he died..

I by the way had eco earth mixed up with moss which kept the humidity in very well.
