Hi Aunt Kymmie.

Thanks for confirming my suspicions. I guess I will just have to be patient and "pamper" them for a while. They do seem to go for the food Badxgillen recommended so maybe the struggle is half over.

My 9 year old brought them home from school. It seems that each year the science teacher brings some into the classroom for educational purposes and then gives them away to students who have the desire and means to keep them as pets. I just wasn't quite prepared mentally for raising babies and didn't know that is what he would be getting.

Follow up

Just so anyone doing research happens to land on this thread:

The frogs are doing great on the frog and tadpole bites badxgillen recommended. They are now gaining weight and are becoming more active. It is a lot less trouble keeping the tank clean now that the food gets eaten. It does take them a while, but they do manage to find and eat just about all of it. I think I will hang on to these for a while now.

Thanks again, badxgillen! It is great to have the help of others on this forum.
