Now I know that I have to limit my handling them, but do you think it would help any if I use my 10 gallon tank as a feeding tank? My husband is going to bring home a couple tiny crickets this evening on his way home from work.

I just want to make sure that my little froggie eats. It's so icky cleaning dead crickets out of the water. We had a Whites a couple years ago (Had to find him a new home because we were moving from CA to FL and couldn't bring him with us) and I remember how much crickets stunk.


:Hmm, good question. Once you find the frog in the substrate, I would get a plate, like a saucer, put it into the tank, and set the frog onto it. Then I would pour a few crix onto the plate, and the frog should have an easier time getting them. alot of my smaller frogs have difficulty feeding on the bedding, getting alot of it in their mouths, which is not good. Finding the frog in the substrate is quite difficult, I once thought a baby bullfrog of mine had escaped but he was merely buried. They will eventually eat, I know it can be frustrating but it'll happen :)
