What was it you could not keep alive the Dwarf frogs or the dwarf sirens?

I kept my dwarf aquatic frogs for few yrs , remember they loved blood/tubifex worms even the dry cubes but never kept dwarf sirens.

I know nothing about them but have read the northern dwarf (Pseudobranchus striatus) is difficult but the Florida dwarf (Pseudobranchus axanthus) has even been bred in captivity.

I looked up the scientific names as don't know it off hand lol.

I saw the Florida dwarfs in a pet store and they were neat .The guy had them for few months . I think it is illegal to sell native fauna in same state but than again this is Florida lol.
