    Hi, can someone tell me some reptiles and amphibians that don't need heating or lighting, are fairly inexpensive, and can live in a 10 gal. long tank.

    Thanks, MasterB758

    Not all lot, that is for sure. Maybe fire bellied toads. But they at least need a light for a day/night cycle.

    Ya, I know I'm not working with too much space but I know that there is a variety of creatures that are okay in here.
    I'm also a member of arachnoboards, but if I was to post this there, I'd get a lot of tarantula suggestions, and I don't like spiders, but if you know any arachnids I'd also be open to those suggestions, but mainly reptiles and amphibians.

    I don't know of any cold blooded animals that don't need heat. As far as I know, all reptiles and amphibians thermoregulate. Maybe if you explain your situation alittle more we can help you find a great animal, and a simple way to keep herps warm and comfortable?

    Well I'm honestly shocked, there are many reptiles and amphibians that do not need heating or lighting and do just fine in room temp.

    If anyone needs an example, something like a Crested gecko does fine in Southern California at room temp. without heating or lighting

    I understand the logic, but cresteds still need thermoregulation. Even if you provide the exact ideal temp, they need to be able to cool down or heat up beyond that. In the wild, a reptile will find a warm sunny spot to bask in when they need heat, or a shady moist area to cool off in. There's no way to provide that in a confined fish tank without atleast some supplemental heat.

    I understand that, and I do provide an area that is different from the over all temp. in the tank so it can do that thingy

    Any newts or small aquatics? Use a little filter. African dwarf frogs or African clawed frog or maybe firebellied newt with a little land mass. Not a mix. Some indirect light in a room could be fair for a clawed frog and youll have fun feedings. Possibly an inexpensive heater if you arnt in a temperate area. Not impossible. You can't be shy about water changes though. Regularly changing the water is important. Like at least each weekend.
