You can't keep an adult White's tree frog in there, or red eyes I don't think. Some people would say one or two American green or grey tree frogs, but then others would disagree as they can jump that distance easily. Maybe reed frogs?

That is basically a 30cm cube, most tree frogs and geckos would be too large (except maybe the likes of Dwarf sand geckos). You might be able to use it for a young corn snake, however I'm not sure how escape-proof these vivariums are.

its not quite a cube its taller like in the pic, i dont fancy snakes as dont like feeding them mice etc. looking into a rough green snake for one of my bigger tanks.
think ill just set it up and have it as a nice little plant terrarium an have it as a posh temp tank for when other tanks need cleaning

Sell it and use the money to buy a home for an animal you really want rather than buying the animal to fit the enclosure.

dont want to be one of those idiots that sell every bit of crap they have in their house on ebay only to make about £5 quid because im too cheap to just give it to the charity shop.

besides i have loads of tanks for animals i want but thought i might find something new and interesting by asking.

Sorry I didn't read the original post correctly. You could try one of the smaller day gecko species such as Phelsuma laticauda.

im looking into getting some of those, think ill put them in a bigger tank though.
i like giving my animals much space as poss so recon ill leave this tank empty- used to keep beadlet anems in it but moved them into a diff smaller tank as they dont need the space
they have just had 7 babies. woo
