Feeding daily or every other day?
#1
I've gotten into a bit of a routine where the day after I feed, if I can see all three frogs moving all around the vivarium hunting, I don't feed that day. I never go more than a day off except if the viv is really overrun by flies, and that's only happened once or twice. The froglets are about 7 months old now.

To my mind, it seems better for them to hop around and climb and get their exercise rather than just suck up the flies I dump in every single day. Especially when the sun's warmed the viv a bit, I see all three roaming all over, which doesn't always happen when I feed even though I sprinkle the flies everywhere. (Everyone seems to have their favorite feeding spot, even though I don't have a feeding station.)

Am I on the right track with this? All three are active and growing and there are rather impressive poops everywhere, but as always I like having the experts weigh in. Smile

no feed for even 3 days in a row for adults is fine.

Aren't they still froglets at seven months?

debatable, but I just basically wanted to say that at ANY age, there can be 1-2 or more, day 'fasts'.

There are a lot of obese frogs in the hobby.

I feed every 3 days usually. Sometimes every other, but lately it's every 3rd day. I suppose it's all relative how many flies you are dropping in too.

Great, thanks for the input. Yeah, I'm trying to avoid obese frogs but I'm still not great at figuring out the ideal number of flies to feed. Skipping one or two days has slimmed down one porker a bit so I'll keep on keeping on.
