i have 2 african dwarf frogs in my 10 gal tank and i have decided that feeding them is too much work (the fish eat it, tangles in the plants) and so i am going to give them their very own tank (a currently out of use 5.5 gal) and i was wondering if they would try to eat ghost shrimp if i put som in with them?
N E comments will be greatly appriciated

Have you tried feeding them with tongs/tweezers? I feed mine using a pair of long plastic tongs, and it works pretty well. Even with such control over where their food goes, I still have to separate their betta tankmate as he is too fat and will consume every last bloodworm that he finds.

Try using a turkey baster! Suck up a lil water and a lil food and dispurse in front of frog. Mine will actually let me hand feed now!
