They have to be kept in a well established tank with water parameters that do not fluctuate. In general, if you can get your ADFs to eat and survive the first week in its new home it should be fine. They are starved at the stores and food and pristine water conditions is a must.

I'm sorry for your loss but I hope you don't give up. They are really easy to care for and they are really cute and interesting to watch in your aquarium.

Good Luck

Got another albino and another brown.
They are tiny! Quarter of the size of my big brown girl.
They'll stay in their qt tank for 8 weeks then, if no probs, go in with the other 2 frogs.

Forgot to ask...what age do the males get their little bump behind each forearm?
(They are only the size of my pinky nail just now so I guess it will be a while)

I had good luck with feeding mine black worms and daphnia.  The black worms were inexpensive and you could keepthem alive in the fridge for an amazingly long time.  I try to put the food on a little white plate in there so I can tell whether they are eating.   Keep trying!

I'll admit, I watch them until I've seen them both eat, sometimes I just watch them  Smiley.
They are exceedingly cute just now, lunging at the food.
Daphnia and artemia seem to be the favourites.
They can't swallow the bloodworms yet, their mouths are to tiny just now. happy
Although they have grown noticably in the short amount of time I've had them.
If I had to guess, I'd say the brown one is female and the albino is male. Their tummys are different when viewed from above.

2 big ones are eating and swimming fine still.
