    Frog-o-spheres are inhumane. They are too small, and the care instructions are wrong. These frogs need to be fed at daily, and thier water changed weekly. Frogs like these normally spend the majority of lives hiding amongst aquatic plants and so this constant visiblity is cruel and unnatural.

      Um, you're grossly misinformed. First, these frogs should NOT be fed daily, nor should the water be changed weekly The feeding and care instructions provided are correct. There has been zero evidence that this environment is harmful for the frogs, they do not exhibit behavior that is unnatural for this type of frog, and their life cycle is longer than those born in the wild. Further, these frogs were born and raised on a farm, not taken from the wild. Lastly, consider why an animal this small would hide. You make it sound like the frogs feel like they're being stalked by paparrazzi. Animals this size hide from predators. This environment is safe and protected. Please stop projecting your human fears onto these tiny creatures, and next time you criticize the care of animals, try to do your research and get your facts right first. If you dispute anything I've said, please provide a link to a credible authority on the topic that agrees with you. I don't think you can. If anyone wants to find out for themselves, look up the care of "African dwarf frogs" (not to be confused with similar species that are larger and have different needs). Please don't let misinformation and provocative language dissuade you from finding out if these African dwarf frogs are the pets for you. A little research on the topic will go a long way towards answering your questions.

      Nevally is right. We've had these frogs for 6 months with no problems. Now I can't find the food because activists like valeria have made Brookstone pull the frogs...and the food from their shelves. Many of these frogs will die a death of starvation because of these "well-meaning" activists.

      If you call a brookstone, they might still have the food. Mine still has it. we just keep it in the back. but if you ask we have no problem getting it for you.

      The water should be changed every 2 to 3 weeks. The frogs DO need more cover because they get stressed if they cannot hide. It does NOT matter if the were not born in the wild they still need places to seek some alone time. They need to be fed every other day. Also the tank is WAY too small because the ammonia and... er... waste builds up. They are WAY inhumane and i would go out and: 1) buy a 2.5 gal. tank 2) buy a heater and filter and some plastic plants 3) if the kit comes with snails buy some algea wafers for it to eat and only give it a fourth of a chip, let it eat that and give it more. It will clean up other things too. 4) buy some quality frog food. 5) set up the tank with heater, filter and plants. Don't forget gravel! 6) let the tank run for 24 hours 7) enjoy your happy and healthy and more active pets!
