I’ve recently acquired two spring peepers and would like to get some experience owning them. Only problem is that there is so little care information on them. I was wonder if anyone has had them before and/or can give me some tips on their care and requirements. Any tips will be greatly appreciated!

I have a couple of spring peepers that I keep with my Smallmouth sallys to clean up any fruit flies or gnats. I've seen them eat small pillbugs and crickets too.

If your pet store offers pinhead crickets, they'll be great. You can also leave an open bag of iceberg lettuce mix or fruit around for several days in a beaker, and then tap the beaker in your tank for fruit flies.

They like to burrow, and are active at night. They're actually very pretty frogs.

I've kept them in the past. They do well in a planted vivarium, with a tight-fitting lid. I can't emphasize this enough- they can squeeze through a very tiny crack.
They should be kept relatively cool, and be given lots of plants and branches to climb on. They need humidity, and a small water dish should be provided.
For food, they will eat nearly any tiny, live insect that will fit in their mouths. Small crickets, isopods, dubia, bean beetles, and fruit flies are all easily obtainable.
They should not be handled except when necessary.

    My axie is acting woerd he was a rescue as stated in a different post he got better and now seems to be deteriorating again...again all tank conditions are OK and as should be. He seems to have some black dapple like pattern under his bottom lip? Is that normal? And his two back feet have a little wierd growth? Almost? Tiny tiny tiny lump. His capillaries in his feathers also appear darker and more visible. Any help would be appreciated
