Biggest advice I can give with these guys is-- do not house them with other species. Even if it can't fit in their mouth, they will try to eat it. I once saw a situation where these toads were continuously housed with newts, and the newts were frequently missing limbs from the toads' attacks.

Additionally, they can excrete a toxin from their skin which can be harmful to other animals in their relatively small tank environment.

Keeping their tank clean can be a challenge because of the dry land and water mix they thrive in and from the waste they produce. But once you get the right set up and filtration it shouldn't be too bad. I do admire their beautiful coloring, but never enough to bother setting a tank up for them.
