I have some very tiny Pseudacris. I think they are P. crucifer, Spring Peepers, but one or more may be Pseudacris triseriata, Western Chorus Frogs. I they were in coconut fiber or moss, they would probably never be seen again... well, maybe. How about paper towel in a large plastic covered container? Would that work until they are larger?

A damp paper towel set up is usually suggested until you get a frog to start eating.

If your suggesting fungus gnats im going to say that is one VERY bad idea. Not for the frogs but for you sanity. Have you ever had a fungus gnat infestation?
That is one thing you dont want to deal with. Trust me. It took me months to knock it down to tolerable when we moved into our new house. I literaly had thousands in my basement and they started getting into the upstairs. Made me consider getting rid of every last viv I had and saying screw it. Im done. I still have the little buggers but at least its tolerable. From what iv been told I will never be able to get rid of them 100%.

Stick to fruit flys

An email I just sent to a friend:

I saw something that looked just like this more than a month ago, hopping on the bottom of what was a pond bottom earlier this year in Grand Rapids' Millennium Park. It was very hot (probably over 90 degrees ), and the former pond bottom was dark, absorbing a lot of sunshine on sunny day - with little breeze. I assumed because temperature and the dry-ish looking gray color on the back that it was a Fowler's toad, and that the X on the back was coincidental. Today I saw this critter on my tank (from near my parents' cottage) that I know is a peeper... and am surprised that that was the species I saw, and nearly shocked that an early breeder like a peeper was hopping across the super-hot ground. Does the second of my statements surprise you?
