Plain white papertowels are good for flooring/substrate when you want to collect fecal samples.

You are going to want something to keep up the humidity and sphagnum is good.You can be judicious with it - doesn't have to be a layer or thick amount.

The other good addition to the Q-tine enclosure would be pothos -bare, cut stem no roots whatsoever. Pothos is a great plant for hides /security and keeping humidity up.

I'm glad you agree with the heart attack tub sound...

The heart attack tub is the best price at WallyWorld. If you shave off half of the snap tab it still closes tight but doesn't make the awful noise.

Make sure you have some decent ventilation in those tubs.

These are the heart attack tubs. Round and clear, sold primarily for Reptiles...

Ventilation is important for any quarantine or temporary container - Especially important due to stress and the possibility of lung problems due to overly high humid conditions.

Do not seal up your frogs in tight, tight containers.
