    Exclamation What kind of frogs is easy to keep? Thanks!

    Hello Folks,
    I need some advice on what kind of frogs is easy to keep?
    currently i only keep fire belly toads and they are doing well for over a year. they eat almost any insects i throw in. Easy!

    I am looking at a few species below and hope to get some advice?
    Well i like RED color frogs mostly as below:
    1) Phrynomantis bifasciatus - Banded rubber frog - i read they are fussy eaters like dart frogs eats very small insects only
    2) Phrynomantis microps - West african rubber frog - i read they are fussy eaters like dart frogs eats very small insects only
    3) Dendropsophus leucophyllatus - Clown tree frog - i read they can take slightly larger insects, example crickets, roaches nymphs etc

    Not RED Colors frogs below but still quite attractive
    4) Kassina maculata - Red leg running frog - i read they can eat any larger insects and easy to feed
    5) Trachycephalus resinifictrix - Amazon milk frogs - i read they can eat any larger insects and easy to feed

    finally i thought of RED Tomato frogs Dyscophus guineti but i didn't like their looks very much

    Please advice me
    Thanks

    You may want to try Litorea caerulea (whites treefrog). Although they are not red they are a good beginner species.

    Hello Dan and folks,

    Nice to meet you here! and thanks for kind advice.
    Well actually i am looking for "less arboreal frogs" which can be housed in lower profile tanks
    i do know Trachycephalus resinifictrix is highly arboreal but they look so colorful and cute face and i included them on my "wish list"

    1) i read up alot of those frogs in my "wish list" and it seems
    Kassina maculata or the Kassina family frogs are less arboreal and easy to keep as they eat larger insects?
    2) i am also reading up
    Madagascar Reeds Frogs Heterixalus alboguttatus which can eat larger insects too. but it seems their average span is very short only 2-3 years?
    3) and for Clown tree frog Dendropsophus leucophyllatus i am not very sure if they can eat larger insects and whats their average life span? they look very small in size like dart and reed frogs
    if there are other better choices please feel free to advice

    Thanks and have a nice day

    You are welcome. I only offer advice on species that I have personally kept so I can’t comment on most of the species you listed. Unfortunately red is a relatively uncommon color when it comes to terrestrial frogs outside of the dendrobatidae family.
