Presumably, you're talking about Phrynomantis bifasciatus or P.microps. If that's so, I would say that you've been provided with information which is questionable at best. You'll get more complete information by way of the scientific name and your favorite search engine. That will also be quicker than me going to the bookshelves, and supplementing from memory.

I'm just wondering if anyone has any experience with these frogs in captivity. Lots of info on natural habitats etc but no one seems to have kept them just want to pick brains that's all

I have kept both P.bifasciatus and P.microps. They like it warmer than most caudates, should be kept reasonably moist, are generally shy, and tend to hide in cracks and crevices. They are also quite toxic, and shouldn't be in close company of other amphibians - same cage may be okay, so long as everybody can avoid prolonged close contact.

    @Jokerjay, as in water dogs do you mean axolotls? i suggest very heavy research and a fully cycled tank before even considering purchasing one

    Axolotls are amazing until they get sick and then they’re a pain in the backside to treat - I recently lost two axolotls due to unknown causes
