    Can you describe exactly the reason for why they the food can no longer roam free? The water should not be too deep.
    Fire bellies are not usually ones to enjoy hand feeding and if they didnt take food from the tongs they certainly won't take anything from your hand.

    the tank is too big the crickets can escape and there are so many places to hide

    Mine are very willing hand feeders, but I can't say it's ever something i set out to do. If your FBT can't be free fed, and is being stressed by the tongs, then I would suggest gently getting the toad into a tub with some crickets in, cover it up with a cloth or something so it is dark and leave the FBT to it for a good while. If you have a large tank there is no reason you can't leave it sitting in there. I found this was one of the only ways one of mine would eat when I first got it.
