    I keep my Plats in this, it has an inbuilt pond from when I used it for frog that I fill with damp spagnum moss for them to lay in if it gets too warm for them or for the girls to use as a lay box.
    This tank is only suitable for this species, if I kept any other leafies or if I lived further north I would use a screen mesh enclosure

    my leaftail enclosure i want something bigger as its only 40x40x80 all mesh enclosure great in summer but come winter i will put them back into a glass enclosure where i can regulate the temperature better. I use cork bark i bought from a orchid nursery online in NSW, they love to hide behind it. this pic taken just this morning .

    what type of leaftails are they Br3nton,they certainly dont seem to mind handling. Cant say the same for my salebrosus especially the female she likes to be left well alone, although she did just lay a week ago.

    they are gonna love that piece of wood xDragonx, did you build the mesh enclosure from scratch.

    Give em plenty of vertical structure to hide and hang about on. Either bark, cork tiles or sandstone sheets are good cheap ones.

    I keep afair few species of leaf tail, very simple to care for as long as they have a vertical branch/peice of bark they are happy... I use bark peices on a angle they will sit always face down hunting allnight, Paul I love thos enclosures very natural one day soon I want mine to look like that.
