I only have one...But every time I go to the petstore I always look at them. I really want more, but with still living at my parents house they would b@#%*! about it. But I will be moving out probably with in a year. Which means I can get more if I have the money too. I already warned my boyfriend that he has to put up with me and my ways with all my pets.

Ahah. My boyfriend and I are still in high school and I warned him about the same thing but he told me there's going to be a limit. Psh...little does he know :)

What about hand feeding?

I am not to sure. I dont see any harm in it. Probably use specialized tweezers so that it wont hurt the ADF's mouth when they grab the food.

Yeah I have a travel pair of eyebrow tweezers and as soon as the frog starts nipping I've been letting the food go and he eats it...they've only eaten once though. What if I scooped him up and just put some wet pellets on my hand in front of him. Think he'd eat it then?

Yeah right now I have 2 cats (that won't come with me whenever I move out because they're my grandmas too) and I have a 10 gallon divided betta tank. Eventually though I want a 10 gallon sorority, a hedgehog, dwarf hamsters, some long haired guinea pigs, 2 kittens and turtles XD

Well ADF's shouldn't be handled much or not at all. The best bet is to try the tweezers again or a food zone. I am not that educated on them since this is my first one, but he is still alive (4 months I think).

When I move out I want to get a dog after I get settled in and know I have the money for one. I have a family dog know but I want one when I get my own place, I feel alot safer with one. My boyfriend already said we can get a dog and it can be my choice. He wants to get a shiba inu and I want to get a APBT. Which he said it is fine. I feel so bad for the breed. I have owned one before so I know exactly truely what they are like.

Go to this link, I love making people who are against APBT. None of them can correctly label the APBT.

What my one ADF has been letting me do is sit on my hand in the water but near the surface...do you think this would be okay?

I guess it isn't a problem then. I think the main reason not to handle them is because they need to be submerged under water and they have a chance of carrying diseases which are spreadable to humans.
