Red-eyed tree frogs seem to love sleeping while stuck on the glass of their tanks or terrariums. They are nocturnal creatures, like all frogs, so you won’t see them being active until the evening, night, and very early morning hours. Red-eyes tend to be a bit more high strung than White’s also. Handling is recommended at a minimum, so that the frog doesn’t get startled or scared. Frogs that are high strung can hurt themselves if they get too scared or excited; they can run into the sides of their cage and cause abrasions on their noses, or jump and fall on the hard floor, which can break bones.

Leaves are long and can vary from green in moderate light to a bright red in better light levels. Stems are yellow green to red. The plants can sometimes show a wide diversity of color on the same plant, particularly if it’s shading itself or is shaded by those plants around it. Emerged leaves are more rounded and can produce a violet flower if grown out of the aquarium. This plant is often mistaken for an Ammannia. To find out more, you can check out Genus Aquatic Plants.
