    I'm even more primitive than that. I use folded up "fish towels" over the gaps in my lids. lol

    I would only go with about 4" of water. The volume should be low enough that if the frog can eat on it's own still it will find the food very easily.
    If you have to hand feed you basically put the food right in front of their face until they take it. I am not sure you can force feed them so if it will not eat it is done for.

    Just as an update, the frog is actually doing better! I am looking into setting the other frogs up in a larger tank together and I should have that set up soon. I will be looking for lots of advice.

    This is great news. Is the leg healing and is he on a better diet now and gaining muscle/weight?

    Post some pics of his recovery always nice to see a frog recover.
