Heterixalus spp., Reed frog
Minimum tank size of 12x12x18 front opening tank or 10 gallon aquarium, but larger groups will need more space. These frogs need a large water feature in their enclosure in order to breed, though a small water dish will suffice if that is not something that you want to pursue. Provide either live plants such as pothos or spathiphyllum or fake plants.
Reed Frogs are about 1” in length as adults.
Reed Frogs can live up to 5 years in captivity, and may live longer with ideal care.
Male Reed Frogs have yellowing on their throats. Females are more rotund.
Reed Frogs do well in groups; they may become aggressive when mating.
Male Reed frogs will emit a series of quick clicks to attract females for amplexus. The pair will lay eggs on emergent vegetation over temporary pools or in marshes.
Eggs hatch over the course of about 5 days and fall into the water.
