Hey,

It's quite hard to find a detailed care sheet but I can advise you how I keep my pair.

Temps should be 20c at night and around 26c during the day.

Humidity is kept at around 70 - 75%.

Food can be any of these at the approprate size (depending on the age/size of your frogs): Locusts, Crickets, Fruit Flies, Been Weavils, Waxmoths....They'll take anything that other frogs can.

Peacock's are nocturnal but you should fnd them out and about in the morning and sometimes at night before the lights go out.

Everything I've read suggests they like to bury at times, mine have never done this and spend 75% up high.

Your habitat should include branches to climb and plants (fake or real) to hide in and feel secure. For substrate I have eco earth covered in leaf litter (stops them getting covered in eco earth).

Are you purchasing adults or youngsters?

Youngsters can go in a 30 x 30 x 45 adults in a 60 x45 x 60 Exo terra, or a tank of similar size.

I think that's pretty much everything.
