    No. They have a piece of driftwood they can go under and a couple fake plants, one being very small. I guess they need more? Is Moss mounting Ziggy because they don't have any hiding places?

    Maybe they are both males and have just now matured and are kinda fighting for dominance? Just a guess........

    That's kinda what I think, because Ziggy did it first, but not to this extent! I just wasn't sure if male fire bellied toads did that. Mine never did in Canada. I thought they all lived together happily, lol. Is there a chance Moss could kill Ziggy, cause it really looks like Moss is trying to drown Ziggy! He dunks him underwater and keeps him there!

    Provide numerous hides. That allows one frog to "escape" form the other. It may be a dominance war and if so leaving the submissive in the open all the time will stress it, possibly to the point of death.

    Toss in 3-4 terra cotta pots (8cm pots should be big enough for red bellies). If you can place them such that they create a full hide, not just set on their side, open to the world. One good way is to knock a half dollar sized hole in the rim on one side and then place the pot in upside down.

    Thanks Pyro, I will do that today. I really think I have two males. Now Ziggy is always hiding in a corner I'll set up something for him so he can escape the mean Moss! Thanks
