pretty much every specimen in captivity now is wild caught or farm raised and is guareented to have internal parasites. i lost the first two i had very quickly, before i was finished with treatment. if is best to treat them, even if they are not showing any signs of problems. you can use store products like tetracycline, or consult an exotics vet. once mine started showing lesions, i got gentamicin for them, which is a very powerful perscription antibiotic, and it still wasn't enough. they are beautiful frogs and need a lot of room, minimum of a 75 gal for two adults. supply a deep and large water bowl and change water daily. adults can easily eat 12 large crickets a day, but they also love f/t mice, nightcrawlers, hornworms and the occasional goldfish. they are primarily nocturnal, so provide good hiding spots with rock or wood caves, live plants, and moss. they alos like to burrow, so 3-8" of soil substrate is a good idea. keep the tank warm and humid and the soil moist, they don't like getting dry.
