    For the most part, I've found that pacman frogs are easy to care for if you follow the right advice. Check out the book "pacman frogs" on Amazon for advice. It's a pacman frog pet care guide that's a free ebook download. The book says to affix a reptile heating pad to the underside of the tank and leave it on 24 hours a day.

I now feel that I was misinformed at the pet store and should have bought a heat mat. Any help would be much appreciated since I am new at this and want to make sure my pacman frog is happy and healthy. Thank you.

    I'm curious as I am new on these forums, what ratio water: vinegar one would use to clean amphibian/reptile tanks? I have 2 pacmans (in separate housing) and a mating pair of crested geckos (I know, not frogs, but still)...

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Great pacman care sheet BTW!

    my frog wont eat anything but crickets, she's almost a year old now, and her bowel movements have changed and her eating habits, she still will eat but only every 3 days... i cant tell if she pooping or not, the side of her belly is soft, i been putting her in warm 80* water and she'll do a lil at a time, she's be active here lately moving around in tank, jumping here and there, this is the most i have ever seen her move, its funny in a way bc she digs holes and then gets in them and then moves, but if i come in and fill it in she gets out and remakes it... love it... any ideas?

    Looks like a standard, chubby, American toad. My toad Brownie looked pretty much just like that (albeit she had a heavily noticeable fat roll under her chin).

    Bdheimann18, supposedly mealworms have been known to cause stress to the frog from inside the stomach. Although I have never researched or found proof I tend to stick to the advice the people give on this forum sticking to crickets and night crawlers. If you decide to use mealworms I would suggest only feeding one at a time. Hope this helps

    Try mixing up the diet a little. It's great that he is eating crickets because it gives them something to hunt but I know especially for my pacman that he really looks forward to that pinky at the end of the month and the slimy night crawlers I give him every other week alternating with crickets. Keeping your pets enriched and active will ensure a long and healthy life for any animal.

    Excellent care sheet! I now know that I shouldn't be only feeding my pacman feeder goldfish. But, what if that is the only thing he has ever gone for? From time to time I will experiment with crickets and night crawlers but he seems to have an aversion to them. He's now about 5 years old, very plump and only will go after feeder fish.
