Most pet shops do sell them' but they are asking to musch for them. I mean, they shouldnt really be sold for over $30. Marsh frogs are great frogs don't get me wrong, yep there are definately some more green looking ones that are all 'stereotypical' of a frog but one of the best species to keep.

They were my first species that i bought years ago and I still have the same one as he is very hardy :D

I think in Victoria you have to get them from a registered breeder. I can't help with recommending one though.

Hi, Pets Wonderland Aquarium in Chapel St Prahran often has young marshies. Coburg Aquarium has them sometimes too though not last weekend. I have some tads but they seem to be taking a very long time to morph. These are nice little frogs, my SBTFs are very placid and will tolerate light handling, the marshies get very excited and desperately try to avoid being picked up (so usually I leave them be).

Funnily enough the tads are the same, SBTFs just swim about going gloop gloop gloop and the marshie tads hide at the bottom of their tank and dash about in a frenzy if I peer over.
