i have one green tree frog and the crickets i get die too soon in a container... do you think i should just let them loose in the tank and let him eat as he pleases?

That's not a good idea especially if you don't leave food for the crickets in your tank, as they will begin to eat at your frog. They leave nasty little bites.

How many crickets are you getting at once?

What type of container are you keeping them in?

Are you feeding your crickets - using gut load and a water supplement.

yeah i do...i read to put one of those egg cartons, a little sponge, and poke holes in the top of the lid to keep them alive longer. i got some more today and im gonna try that out. do you know anything about having any kind of water system in the tank...like a quarter of my tank (probly not that much) is just the bedabeast with my waterbowls there and the other side i have a tree lookin thing with hollowed out inside and a two raised parts (the frog is on this alot after it eats) and then i have some fake jungle leaves (silk) that cover about half of that. what do you think...could i add a small VERY shallow water section with a waterfall to keep a constant humidity?

For sure you can do the waterfall. I have an exo-terra one in my tank. The pump gets clogged alot so that kinda sucks, however, I don't find that it keeps the humidity any higher. I mist the tank to control the humidity.

Make sure you are giving your crickets some type of food and nutrient as well. You can buy cricket quench and actual cricket food at the pet store. I use cricket quench, apple, lettuce and sometimes moistened cat food to feed my crickets. It'll give your frogs more nutrients and will help keep your crickets alive longer.

Also, depending on the age of your frog, make sure you are using a calcium dust on your cricket. Every feeding for a juvy and every 2nd or 3rd (I do every 3rd) for an adult.

Good Luck!

trying not to go off topic, but how do you put them in your frogs tank without letting all of the other ones out?
