our frogs arent eating

Postby kandk » Wed Nov 19, 2008 6:41 am

my girlfriend bought some green tree frogs about four months ago and they seemed very happy until we replaced their dirt with small rocks as a result of fruit flys. My girlfriend had placed a heat lamp inside the tank and coincidentaly two of the frogs were burned. they seem to have recovered but no longer croak and havent eaten more than three worms between the four of them for almost three to four weeks now. we have been using distilled water to spray them and use it also in their "pond". we replced the lamp with a heat blanket beneath the tank. is it normal for them to not be eating? Should we put dirt back in their tank? just a liittle advice would be appreciated. (we cant get them crikets as we live almost an hour from the nearest pet store that sells them) we feed them meal worms and seemed to eat them just fine at first. any help would be appreciated.

How badly burnt were they? The wounds could be infected and that may be affecting the frogs. Do you have any pictures of the frogs and their enclosure?
