"I have two male white lipped tree frogs who are approx 10 months old. I have them in an aquarium with a UV light and 100W heat lamp it is also set up with branches, ledges and foliage. The base of the aquarium is gravel and heated water as we have 3 tiny fish. I feed the boys gut loaded crickets every two to three days. They seem to be very healthy and range from brown to a dark purplish colour. One of the boys is very much the "alpha male" and can be a little aggressive with the littler boy, knocks him of his perch and into the water. The little one seems to cope well and just goes about his business. In the last couple of weeks they alpha male has started to croak excessively. He starts to croak continuously around 2:00 clock in the afternoon and doesn't stop until around 3.30am - he wakes the entire family up (including 2 children who sleep very soundly). We can not talk on the telephone unless we go into another room or outside and we have to turn the TV up really loud. The past two nights I have made a smaller enclosure for the boys in our garage, just so we can get some sleep. The enclosure is heated with a mat rather than a lamp and has a small container of water and some branches and foliage. They either do not croak or we can not hear them. When I put them back in their normal aquarium around 6.30am in the morning they are cool to the touch and bright green. I am not sure what to do to stop the constant croaking as I don't think it is good for the frogs to be moved every day. Should I drop the temperature in the aquarium - remove the heat lamp (this goes against everything I have been told to do to look after them). Please help - they are driving us mad! "
