Dwarf frogs.
 
Hi,
In one 10 gallon tank i have 10 neon tetra's, 2 upsidedown catfish, 4 guppies, and 2 Barb fish, and i just recently got 2 dwarf frogs, about 3 or 4 days ago. I feed my fish frozen bloodworms, but my frogs do not eat.
is there a problem? should i wait for them to settle in, or should i try a different food?
Please help!
Thanks! :BIGgrin:

This is how i got mine to eat. Pinch some off in your fingers. Follow the frogs around and keep showing them the food. If they swim away follow them. They will eventually eat out of your fingers. Feed until their bellies are nice and round. Good luck. [/u]

My aquatic frogs eat off the ground. when i feed them blood worms they eat the stuff that has not been eaten and has fell to the ground. they are a brand of scavenger. they will not eat floating food.

Actually...Mine has learned to eat at the waterline with the fish. I just drop in his freeze dried blood worms and he eats them. It is probably a special talent for a frog and not all learn this but mine has.

I'm sure sinking pellets would work too?

My friend feeds her african dwarf frogs betta bits. She only has the frogs though, so they aren't competing with any fishies for their food.
