I have been handfeeding both of them, and they got it down, but now Stumpy is refusing to eat.

Now is the time
To rise up

I'll try to offer suggestions until the more experienced members show up. If you're feeding them in the mornings, you could try switching to feeding Stumpy at night. Mine tend to eat better if I feed them just before I go to bed. Otherwise, he might be stressed if something has recently changed with the tank. Lights on too much, water too cold, something like that.

So I went in today planning to buy a couple ADF's but asked the girl who was helping me if they used the same net with all the frogs. She said yes, and I explained what the issue with that was, and she blew me off. I sent an e-mail to corporate as soon as I left the location. If someone is trying to help you learn what to do why won't you listen to their advice?! I can't believe it

So, does anyone know where I could order an ADF online since nobody around me carries them without screwing up how to take care of them?

Uh-oh! Poor little dude. . . hope he's okay! I agree with Watty - I feed mine in the evenings, too. Since it's naturally their most active time of day, they seem to like it best that way. If that doesn't work, try fasting them for 24 - 48 hours, and try it again. It's REALLY easy to overfeed ADF, and once they've reached around 9 months of age (from birth - including taddy stages!) they only NEED to be fed every other or every third day. Maybe he's just been getting too much and is simply not hungry? Keep us informed. . . hope all is well!

I'm sorry - I'm not really sure of any reputable sellers online for the froggies. $12 bucks is a LOT, woah! PetSmart also sells for around the $3 mark. . . of course, you'll be paying far more if you have to add a $50 shipping for overnight delivery, which you'd have to do with the temps dipping. The only other thing you can do is TRY to get the frogs from the shop and do a preemptive treatment for Chytrid or (what I would do) watch and see - just because they HAVE ACF doesn't mean that they're 100% SURE to be ill, you know? Of course you'd be supporting a shop that is doing things in a way that isn't exactly right, but. . . *shrugs*

Sorry! I'm mixing up two posters - I need a nap ;) Good luck to BOTH of you in finding your little froggies!
