Will my frogs starve?
#1
Has anyone ever had a frog die of starvation when not fed for a week or even a month or more with a microfauna population in the viv?

That said I have not.

Let me remind you some frogs like reticulata I never even offered FF until they were 3-4 months oow. There are many factors and reasons for not feeding but an esablished viv in this hobby without a micro fauna population there is no excuse for.

Even without a good microfauna population it should take well over a week for a healthy frog to starve, at least with the larger species. Thumbs may be a different case but I don't know enough to speculate on them. I have had a few big FF crashes and my frogs weathered the shortage without any issues until I had new ones producing.

Darts, even pums, can live weeks without any food. Amphibians put on and take off 'real' weight very slowly, as a whole, all things equal.

Darts with parasites are analogous to mixed tanks, there are no known benefits to the frogs with either.


If tone is more important to you than content, you are at the wrong place.
