I forgot about the powder! Thanks for the reminder I will pick some up today to be ready.

I ended up leaving 1 cricket in the tank over night, figured 1 cricket wouldn't be too much of a mess to clean up. This morning, there it was... floating around in the water. I cleaned it up and will try again with the plastic container.

Stretch came out of hiding just before I went to bed last night and took a little midnight swim. That was the first time he/she has come out of hidding on his pwn since hitting land. I coaxed him/her out last night to try and eat, but that's been the only time I've disturbed him. Well see. I don't want the lil bugger gettin all skinny on me.


:maybe he is not ready yet. one of my green froglets took about 2 weeks before he would eat. then all of a sudden he snapped at a cricket and ate well. Two weeks into his froglet stage, I just left him in a deli cup with 2 small crix overnight, and they were gone in the AM. He is most likely not going to starve; as long as he's not skeletal. and once he does get choppin', make sure you use vitamin/calcium powder on every third feeding or so; if not, metabolic bone disease could result.!
