I've heard it's hard to feed ADF's. Is that true?

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

I never had a problem with him. Since you said that your fish are messy eaters, leaving behind a mess, the ADF can find food. In case, you can always getting him some type of sinking foods - but I'm not sure what. I usually soaked a pellet or flake, and with a baster stuck it down, next to him and pushed the food to him and he'd eat it.

I'll consider the ADF's! I'd probably feed them while the guppies are eating their flakes. It's like a frenzy feeding them, they are such pigs. xD

So, just soak a few tropical flakes, stick em in the baster, and squeeze in front of the frog? Is there any brands that are good? At the moment I'm using these:

How long do they live?

Tetramin should work for guppies, and I do not think the ADF will mind.. You can also see if you can find frozen/live/freeze dried bloodworms... they'll LOVE those (and so will your fish :o) Oh and I looked it up and I guess they do make "frog and tadpole bites" o.o
I've never found them.

The average life of a ADF, is approximately 5 years but some live longer..
