Welcome to the Frog. First off that is way too many animals in an 8 gallon tank. ACF need a minimum of ten gallons per frog, and that is with no tank mates, which they WILL eat if they can get it in their mouth.

Also they are very good at escaping. You have to have a good lid or they will keep getting out.

Pellets are fine for babies, but pretty useless for adults, and definitely unwarranted after they start eating fish. Try feeding them nightcrawlers, roaches, crickets, etc. But first get a larger tank.

I had a breeding pair ACF's back in the day in a 40g breeder. ACF's are very mobile frogs that need a lot of room to move. The bigger, the better. The smaller the tank, the more they will try to migrate to a better pond (climb out of the tank).

ACF's all are indeed avid escape artists, they can climb well, and they will. They don't have the greatest vision, so they touch things. They are voracious eaters, cannibalistic, and will eat anything that touches their hands/nose, and they wont stop eating till the food's gone, or they literally cant fit anymore. I had one that ate all of my tiger barbs, till she was swimming around with half a fish sticking out of her mouth for the day.

I lost a lot of fish to them, on top of my fish fodder, I would feed them blood worms, and ghost shrimp, they would go on a feeding frenzy when the worms hit (if you use frozen worms, take a cup of water from the tank, and let the frozen block dissolve in it before adding it to the tank. Just works better that way).

I feed mostly live. Once in a while I feed krill or other dead shit, but they absolutely love eating live prey.

I have one trio that go ape shit when I walk in with a bowl of worms and food.

Watch how they react at first just from me bringing in the food bowl.
