Gray Tree frog does not need a light?

I was reading a forum on here where someone was saying gray tree frogs don't need a light? Care sheets I was reading said they need UVB and have been using a light. Just looking for some confirmation on this before I am committed. My light makes it a little too hot for a flightless fruit fly culture so not having the light would be great so my lil guy wouldn't only be eating crickets.

A light is unnecessary, although I bet it would do better with UVB. They do bask in the wild.

I just bought a uvb only light. Going to try that. I was using a spare uvb heat light I had extra from my turtles. I had moved the aquarium previously where i could position the light different and that helped. I think I will stick with the light, the new bulb won't put out any heat so I'm sure fruitflies will be happier. Til they get eaten. Turns out I didn't fry them after all.

He's so cute! Hopefully he's OK with you adding the light to his cage.

He's doing great and doesn't seem to mind the light at all. It's just uvb(has a blueish tint to the light), no heat and he's been eating every day. Moths and/or crickets, I never notice him eat the fruit flies but they are there.
