Damn, that greedy tomato!!
He was by the water plate and I filled up the plate with some more water, but the splashes moved a bit of moss and the Tomato thought it was a cricket and...zap!! He ate it!
He did some strange faces and now he's in a strange position, like waiting for something.

Should I do anything? Is he just gonna throw up without any problems?

watch him close... that might cause an impaction, which is very bad news. bed a beast without the moss on top is a good idea for that very reason...

i just lost my guy yesterday after many problems from an impaction. just keep an eye on him and make sure it comes out the other end. i wouldnt use the moss but that is completely your choice.

I wouldn't use moss either, I saved one of my WTF from choking because he had moss in his mouth and started to choke. If I hadn't been watching him feed and saw that he was in trouble I wouldn't have him today.

I had a pacman in work before who mustve eaten some moss before he was sent to our store( i knew moss was a no-no) and when he um...went,, there was a long long string of moss hanging out his behind. At first i thought it was like his guts coming out(was all slimy) then i put him in a little water to swim so i could see what it really was( i know they cant swim well,but he floated nicely,and i got to see what it was-the moss) and i had to pull it out. God,could you imagine having your butt flossed?ick.

This morning my Tomato seemed fine.
I couldn't see how much he ate but if I remember correctly it's very very little.
And he's such a rock that I doubt this might bother him. hehehe

I'd LOVE to get rid of the moss, but I wanted to provide a natural place for him to hide. Any other solutions to this?

Well, Alechan. I use moss for my frogs, mainly becuase my Cuban and Squirrel tree frogs like to hide in it. My solution is to never feed them on the moss. I either put a separate container in their cage with crickets, or take them out of their cage into a smaller one where they feed, substrate-free.

unfortunately I cannot keep big tanks cos my apartment is already tiny. Me and my frogs have to adapt ourselves to Hong Kong: small and expensive homes. :\
I can transfer the frogs to a small eating tank though.

Anyway, u said Squirrel frog???

i do the same,and feed my frog sin a seperate container. tht way theres no lost icky bugs running around my tank,and i cant keep track on what they ate. My redeye baby doesnt like doing that,but hes in a holding tank for now,so thats his eating place as well. Maybe by the time i put him in his real home hell get used to the idea of eating in his holding tank.

Yeah, I do not feed my redeyes (nor my cuban) in a separate place. I put in a little cup with the dusted crix and they take them from there. However, it has worked best for my GTF and squirrel tree frogs to take them out. I don't have other tanks for this, though, I just use a small critter keeper. Actually, I started to use a disposable cup and it works much better for me. No room needed!

Those aren't squirrels, squirrels are very little and not so decorated. I love mine though.

Now I know that I have Hyla Chinensis. heehehe
Anyway the call is EXACTLY like the squirrel's one.
Do your squirrels croak a lot?
