I mourned for a week or so, then returned to the pet store to get new frogs.

Poison dart frogs are strictly insectivores, and will only eat small, live insects. Frogkeepers use a variety of insects, but the two most common types are flightless fruit flies and crickets. I strongly recommend flightless fruit flies as the primary food source for your poison dart frogs. Culturing them is fairly easy and should only require a few minutes of work every couple weeks. Supplies to culture your flies are fairly inexpensive. Crickets are also a good food source, but challenges can make them impractical. For example, very few pet stores carry crickets that are small enough for poison dart frogs. Crickets also grow rapidly, and thus quickly become too large for poison dart frogs. Whatever you feed your dart frogs, make sure to dust food items before every feeding with a high-quality calcium and vitamin supplement.

Before you run out to the nearest pet store or pond to find your new pet frog, there are several things you should consider. A frog can be a lot of work, and have very specific feeding needs. Frogs aren’t like goldfish either so you need to think about what you're going to do when you plan to go out-of-town for a week. Not too many people will be anxious to handle bugs at feeding time. I saw the cutest little frogs in the pet store called "Pixie frogs"- wow! They were these tiny little green things (almost an inch long in size) and even their name was cute....There are many species of frogs, and many of them have very individualized pet care needs. Some frogs need to hibernate during the winter, while others do not. Proper pet care needs will change from what you need as far as tank set-up to what type of food you will need. Another important thing to remember when choosing which species, is how large they will be when they reach their full grown size. Many frogs look cute in the pet store, and then you bring them home and in a few months they've grown in monstrous proportions and aren’t nearly as nice as you thought they were going to be. Frogs live for a very long time, so make sure you choose wisely.For the first frog encounter, I strongly recommend the . These guys are small, active, cute, and about as difficult to maintain as a tank of goldfish. You also don't have to deal with live bugs and they can be kept in the same conditions as goldfish for extended periods of time...(as long as there is a cover!) Dwarf frogs are very easy to take care of once they've become used to their new home. As with all fish, expect the first couple of weeks for adaptation time (many times pet stores will sell frogs that are already sick, or that are very very small and which may be a bit fragile in the first couple of weeks.) My sister had terrible luck with the baby frogs until she learned to wait for 2 weeks before she names her new pet (Usually, by then you can tell if the frogs will make the long haul) The best recommendation here is to get them at a decent size. Avoid really skinny ones or ones that are as small as your pinky-nail. In addition, if the frog doesn't give the pet shop owner a really hard time when the net goes into the tank, it may indicate some initial signs of being in less than perfect condition.
