It's a hint that you should get a larger vivarium

Joking aside, I think having large broms suit the frogs better in that they have larger "pools" to utilise.

Ideally get down to the nearest garden centre for advice and you may see some that could be suitable even though small in size that have broad leaves say and deep areas where water collects.

my vivarium is 90x45x45cm
the bromeliads I have grow to big
I don't need a deep plants as all my frogs are males
also they have a large pool if the need to sit in water
it just that I would like to add more plants but the bromeliads I have take up to much room and I have only got two of them

Smaller Neoregelias, such as Fireball and Super Fireball, would suit smaller vivariums.
you can get some miniature guzmania and vriesea too

Look at any of the neoregelia most stay small. Wild tiger, mini skirt, any of the fireball varieties, domino, alley cat, Tunisia are all nice ones I have tried that donít get very big.
