    I'm not a frog expert and I'm sure you'll hear from some soon, but here are a few things to consider:
    Do you have a planted tank? Are you sure that what was eating the dead crickets before was mites or was it springtails which are scavenger bugs and supposed to eat the crickets?
    Do red eye tree frogs do well individually? I had been under the impression that they do best in small groups but, as I said, I'm no expert.
    I have a trio or RETF. I have never seen them eat, but the cricket population in the enclosure seems low, I see poop, and after nearly a year, they're all doing OK.

    Hi Lucca

    You really shouldn't take it out to feed, it will stress the frog out. Instead try not too put too many crickets in, monitor how much the frog actually eats. If you still see crickets roaming about the next day, you're feeding too much or too often.
