Kyle's right--smaller enclosures ensure constant contact with food. If you want to be able to show them off during that time, you can buy one of those critter keepers (or pet pals, whatever) and cover up the vents (to keept the ff's in and the humidity up).
In addition to ff's, I would strongly suggest getting a starter culture of springtails. It's good to have an alternate source of food for the frogs, and springtails are a real treat for my frogs. If you have any that are slow to eat at first, this may coax them into feeding. Confused flour beetle larvae are another good backup food source that require little care.
Other than that, the care is identical for froglets as it is for frogs. However, I would suggest feeding twice per day. It's fun to watch, and you ensure your froglets have a constant supply of food. It's absolutely incredible how much they eat, and how fast they grow when they are sufficiently fed.
Good luck, you're gonna love it!
:Hi, I'm in the middle of re-working my 35 gal setup, and creating a new 45 gal setup as well. FF cultures will be started next week, and I'll be ready to get some frogs in about 3 weeks or a month. I'm considering froglets because of their cheaper pricetag, and would like to know what I should expect as far as care requirements that are different than a juvenile, or adult frog- which I've already had. Should I set up a 10 gal. for them until they get a little bigger? any advice would be appreciated, let's get a discussion going! thanks in advance, jeff
