Hey everyone, I decided to move my jumpers (male and female) out of their habitat, (which was a 6.5' tall jar) into a 2.5 gallon aquarium. I've coverd all exits (except for a feeding flap) with mesh to insure that there are no escapees. It's kind of bland for now, with just some plants and a feeding area, but I hope to expand, make it better and decorate, any advice from you guys/gals?

Wow, they'll have quite the palace in there! Hope they really enjoy it. You'll want to make sure there are plenty of separate hiding spaces so they don't come across each other, otherwise you may only have one jumper in that enclosure.

Yeah, I know. Even when they've came across eachother, there have not been any aggression towards one another which is pretty cool imo. There's two males and two females in together, so I'm suprised about the no aggression.

Much better digs than most jumpers get to enjoy in captivity! Nicely done :) I'm sure they appreciate your effort!

That's one cool enclosure man ! But isn't that a problem that they can slip under the tissue or is that for a reason ?

Thank you! And yes, that paper towel is there because 1. They're an arboreal species, and 2. because they can get moisture ffom it
