    When I got my frogs they were skinny. They've been eating well, even living with a betta :D
    They also seem to like NLS Cichlid pellets more than frog pellets.

    Mine have come a long way since I first got them. I'm sure they'll get bigger :D You're gonna have frog babies?! That will be cool.

    I don't have the time for frog babies LOL However, I did leave the tank they were in back home full of water because I thought I saw some eggs in the bottom :;nin2 Whats realy funny is that my mom is scared of frogs :;laughing I could just see her walking out to my room, and the supposedly empty tank as little tadpoles swimming around in it :;laughing

    How could anybody be afraid of some of the cutest little buggers on the planet?

    My frogs seem to really like NLS Cichlid pellets. I wonder if they want to be fish...

    "LET ME IN, THERES A FROG!!!!!"
    *opens door* "Thats not a frog. Its a toad!"
    "LET ME IN!!!!"
    :;laughing

    I'm not saying your frog is fat, I think she looks fine and healthy and very cute :), but ADF's can get obese if they are overfed.
    Usually the female ends up fatter than the males. My female is a much better hunter and just loves to eat. I hand feed them, but she manages to find all the food that gets away. She not fat but I do know she is going to hunt around so I give her slightly less when hand feeding than the males.

    Just to be on the safe side, if you think she is getting a little to chubby, you could fast the frogs a couple of times a week or feed every other day.

    Yes, strange how it's always the females that become obese. I've seen plenty of overweight males, but none that could be considered to be severely obese, like this poor female. - frogbreeder

    When I had Ventress in with the frogs, she tried to take some food from them. The frog bit her and then stood up and stretched out it's flippers like it was ready to box. I <3 ADF's
