Hey just wondering which ones of the frogs you see listed below would eat guppies or goldfish? I am especially wondering about the red eyes, black eyes, and the big eyes. Has anybody ever fed fish to these guys? Also, a breeder told me about a fish that helps keep the water in the tank clean by eating the crickets that annoyingly jump into the water. does anyone know the name of the fish?

I wouldn't think that red eyes would, I've had fish in my tank and they never paid any attention to them. They just yucked up the water along with the crickets.

You can use some of the "cricket saver" fake plants for in the water, I use the fake duckweed and that seems to work well. I don't know about the fish that eats crickets but I did have a good snail that took care of things, I believe it was an apple snail.

Rich, you can also just put a small rock or stone in the water dish and that will keep the crickets from drowning.

killes fish! thats the one that mike novy told me aboout! Thanks memncoch. I do have a rick in the waterbowl but they still seem to drown. Its a pretty big water bowl that i made myself. The sides are too slipery for them to get out of and the rock gets some slime on it after being in the water for a couple of days. But i never tried putting a live plant in there. That i think would work great. Thanks for the tips guys. One more thing ragodoll, how much waste would the snail produce when you had him in your tank?

Generally, fish are not good feeders. I would recommend a good Bio filter and things the Crickets can crawl up on instead of Drowning...

I lost very few crickets when I had my rain chamber set up. I put lots of wood, and fake plants in to help them crawl out

I didn't really notice any waste, though I had a bio-wheel filtered setup.

The wood and plants in the water help a lot, though some of them just jump in and drown, while others will swim?
