    Re: ‘worms’ in frog pool

    Could be nematodes which will require you to deworm your frog. Best to have a vet confirm and supply you with the necessary medication.

    Be aware that they could also be Fungus gnat maggots. They...

    You should try something other than roaches. They tend to not like the spikey legs they have and will sometimes refuse them. Try Earthworms or see if you can get Hornworms for her.

    Re: 3yo - Trixie not eating! Help

    You said she was eating on her own, but now you are saying that you have to force feed her again?

    You can offer her the roach nymphs rather than adults. Their Chitin is not quite as hard. Also you...

    You can use hissers but I wouldn't offer the adults because they are large and contain a lot of chitin. Not really a substitute for mice because they're not the same. It's always good to offer...

    Her skin looks fine.

    What is left in the water could be from her stomach. Since she is sitting on that portion of skin while shedding it may year and that is why she doesn't eat it. Next time she...

    Does she leave all her shed or is it only some small pieces?

    They typically eat the whole shed, but sometimes miss pieces because the shed gets stuck or tears during the process.

    If you would,...

    Sounds like poisoning. Do you use insecticide or chemical fertilizers in your garden? If so, that could be the problem.

    Check the frog's thumbs. There will be a dark spot on the side of the digit know as a nuptial pad if the frog is male. Females tend to be larger than males and mostly lack any identifying markers.

    Your frog is an adult.

    Your temperature range is fine. As for the humidity jumping to 90%, that is due to no light burning off the moisture in the air. It's a little high and you'll need to watch...

    You're welcome.

    If possible remove the small amount of formula from the substrate. You don't want it mixed in with it.

    It's probably unrelated.

    What you are using is fine for supplements. You will need to give less often because adults do not need supplements as often as growing frogs. Once per week is sufficient.

    They are not necessary but can be used if you like. The important part is not using a light source that interferes with the animals day night cycle.

    Sounds good.

    As for the force feeding. You'll probably have to pry his mouth open and you'll only want to feed him about 0.5 mL of the liquid food at a time until. They have not evolved to drink...

    I'd leave him be since you've force fed him. Messing with him a lot will increase stress. Force feeding even more so. That's why it is only used as a last resort.

    Bulb height is based on output....

    You can try that.

    Be careful with these critical care formulas. They are made to break down and become bioavailable rapidly and can grow bacteria very quickly if contaminated.
