At first disappearing fish all that you will notice... it's a good sign!

Since you have a communal tank, you will need to make sure everyone is eating. If this is a problem you'll need to seperate them. Don't rush into anything though, just be observant. They do really well, and periods without eating are not a problem as long as it does not indicate disease.

Other things to try are minnows and goldfish. Don't feed exclusively any one kind of fish to ensure a good nutritional spectrum. South american tetras are a little more expensive but I feed them occasionally. They are native to the same areas as the pipa toads, however I'm uncertain if they cohabit the same microhabitats. As I said earlier, I'll also occasionally feed mice. You'll have to wait until they are settled and feeding off of tongues for that though. I've never fed worms, but they should be great too.
