    Hi,
    You could probably get your pots at a nursery, but I suppose you tried that already.
    My sources would be online.
    Oh and I think a pacman would be ideal. They don't move around too much so they wont mush up your plants. I don't know what kind of substrate they like but I hope its compatible with whatever plants you plan on putting on the ground.

    Default FROGDOR!!

    So i got the frog. i cant set logs and foam in there until... i HAVE them, so im keeping the frog, and a few crudely mounted plants in there (2 flytraps, fern, 3 tillandsias) until i get everything settled for final build. here's the pics of FROGDOR (yes, thats like TROGDOR)

    sorry about the clarity on the third image - i couldnt think of a good way to get a good depth of field without the glare.

    Goldfish? Wow, I thought small frogs ate insects. So do you serve the fish dead or alive? Just drop it into the water? This is fascinating

    The pacman frog is nice to look at and it doesn't do alot. I get bored with these frogs so I preferred Epi. tricolor dart frogs. They are very active and the sound they make sounds like crickets singing only that it is very low and not annoying. Food for them is cheap considering you can raise wingless fruitflies in jars with mash potato soaked in malt vinegar with yeast sprinkle on top. Cricket cost alot of money over time and you have to make a trip to the pet shop to obtain crickets. You can't buy alot of crickets and not expect to go to the shop. Crickets have a tendency to eat each other like cannables.
