Hi,

Just came home with an awesome little frog from the pet store. I am a seasoned aquarium keeper but this is my first frog.

The pet store person set me up by telling me all I needed for care was a 2 and 1/2 gallon tank with a few inches of dechlor water and some plastic plants if desired.

Feeding: She said 3-4 earthworms or waxworms a day.

Maint: Change water once a week.

Now, with my experience at fishkeeping I am LOATHE to trust a pet shop clerk, but she said that she has her own healthy Budgett's that she's had for years and this is how she keeps it.


Any thoughts? It seems to good to be true. I've been reading on the web since I've gotten home and there doesn't seem to be much consistant care information out there.

Please help!
Thanks!
