Any experience with Kassina maculata?

I am really taken by these frogs as they are very pretty and exhibit some interesting behavior? Has anyone here kept them and have any advice on captive conditions? Have they been bred in captivity and are they easy to induce breeding?

Has anyone noticed color changing in these frogs? We once surprised one our specimens by turning on the lights at night and he was nearly white. He quickly turned to his normal darker coloration. Has anyone else seen this? Is it normal?

Thanks!

Yes, I'm familiar with that piece of information. I have gleaned what little information is found on these animals on the web and I was wondering if anyone here has personal experience with these frogs.

Thanks for your help but I was looking for more specific natural history information or anecdotal evidence of captive care.

    Is it fine to feed adult marbled newts once every 10-15 days?

    they get fat after eating their worm pieces and it takes a long time to look as thin as they do in wild life pictures. there are no other prey items available around here.

    So, how often do I have to change the soil in my yellow spotteds terrarium? The soil looks fine, he stays under his rock all the time, so should I maybe only change put the soil from udner the rock? Or do I change it all out cuz its all stayed moist and I dont wnat it it mold kinda deal? Its been around 40 days with the same soil. It looks and smells completely fine though. I dont know what salamander poop even looks like, but Im not even finding any. I put pill bugs in his cage for him and they disappear, theyre not burrowing, so he MUST be eating them. What am I looking out for when the soil needs to be changed? Clearly the people whos aid they were coming to seize my salamander have forgotten and arent coming back.
