Not a problem! We all start somewhere!

Here is an example of the sort of bulbs.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/ProRep-Spot-...6295264&sr=8-3

YOU MUST GET A GUARD FOR THIS! They are also sold on amazon.

If you need to, send me links to ones you are considering buying and I'll advise you on whether it is suitable.

Merry Christmas!

Andy

Substrate- Aspen most likely

2x Hides-moist and normal

Water dish-for water...

Thermometers-digital and stick on

Heat source- Bulb and Mat with guard (ProRep Red Spot Reptile Bulb 60W BC (Bayonet): Amazon.co.uk: Kitchen & Home)

Looks good!

One piece of advice - if your gonna get the bulb and guard don't bother with a heat mat too its one or the other or it gets too hot! Just go with the bulb and guard mate.

Other than that one point, your list is perfect!

I'm clueless when it comes to frogs though!

If you need anymore help at any time please feel free to message me, I'd be more than happy to help.

Not a problem!

I'll answer any questions you send me as soon as I can. Sometimes my phone doesn't show the notifications though so I may see it an hour later. Also being a teenager means I have lots of facebook alerts and texts so I might not see it if I get another notification at the same time!

Best of luck, will be good to hear from you in the future!

Andy
