Got 2 new African dwarf frogs!
When I was in Bismarck I bought 2 ADFs at PetSmart because we don't have anyone here in town who sells them.
I obviously read up on them beforehand, discovering all about their poor eyesight, the need to feed them on more of a "personal" basis to make sure they get food before anything else in the tank does, and the fact that they will usually only eat live or frozen food.
I was told by one of the staff at PetSmart that they feed their ADFs with a turkey baster and eventually the frogs learn that when they see the end of the baster food is coming. In doing so myself, it seems that one of the frogs is already starting to figure this out but the other one really hasn't yet, so what I've also been doing is leaving a little bit of food on the gravel right beside whereever they happen to be in the tank at feeding time so they can smell it.
Anyone else with ADF frogs and how easy/difficult have you found feeding?
Also, I'm wondering if they really aren't supposed to be the most exciting little creatures or if mine are just dull. They don't seem to move a whole lot, actually standing in the same position for almost an hour at time sometimes. At one point I was worried that they were getting caught up in some of the decor/plants of the tank so I actually thinned it out a little, removing the plants that were thicker and more spindly and leaving the plants that provided protection from the light and hiding places but were thinner and easier to get through.
Any other tips on keeping ADFs?
