Next step I did the same thing, but I'd curl my fingerd up and make a cup. When they were use to that I'd then slowly raise my hand to have a better angle to feed them.
This is where my two frogs differed, Sam realized that Hand=food and would swim over right away to investigate me. John Snow has always been more skittish, so it took a few extra weeks of me with a steady hand for him to be comfortable with the thought of me being able to move him. While he was being a big baby Sam would jump into my hand and beg for food... What a pig lol.
Now I can stick my hand in the tank and they swim over and I can drop pellets and worms and stuff right on their heads lol. Their comedy is so worth getting my hands wet for.

|DTDPlanted||Any experience keeping them in a fluval edge? there is about a 6" square opening to air at the top of the tank and the rest is sealed by glass, I COULD leave just a bit of air room but that kind of defeats the purpose of the nice clear view to the bottom the glass gives when its filled completely. Any thoughts on whether they would be smart enough to find that opening all the time? I don't want them to drown|

You should be fine as long as your properly filtered. Two frogs in a five gallon is plenty of room. You can add snails too, if you'd like. I doubt your frogs will care.

I just got a little 5 gal. What kind of space do two frogs need? I imagine they do better with a buddy so I don't want to isolate an animal. The tank came with a little hang on filter and I plan on aerating the water with surface agitation (saves me an outlet and I want a lower water level for the frogs anyway). I'll need a heater, of course. Is this an adequate setup?
Last, are snails compatible?

|pandamonium||I have these guys and one time they climbed out of the water and kinda just stuck onto the class like maybe spiderfrog hahaha. I guess as long as it is moist they can leave the water. I have read accounts of them climbing up onto floating driftwood or styrofoam and hanging out. Problem is some people have also said that if they forget to climb back in the water, they will die. Not sure how true it is, but mine have climbed out before and it's so funny.|

ADF are completely aquatic. They do not need any land areas. They will perch on something high up and stick their little heads out of the water or float at the top. Mine really seem to like to hang out in the floating plants in their tank.
I haven't ever tried to touch my ADF. I understand that they are pretty sensitive and absorb everything through the skin, so I really wouldn't want to chance it.
I have heard that they can escape the tank, but I have not experienced this myself. I have always kept them with apple snails though, so I generally leave 1-2 inches at the top of the tank with no water. (The snails need to crawl up the glass out of the water from time to time and will lay their eggs there.) I do keep a lid on the aquarium, but there is certainly enough of a gap for one to get out if he wanted to do so. I have not ever had a frog escape.
I have had a snail escape. I found him a good three feet from the tank on the bar. I suspect the cat may have helped him. I just plopped him back into the tank and he was fine.
I've never kept newts, so I can't say anything about those.

I have a few questions.
I Was thinking of getting those newt things (Black and orangeish), or maybe african dwarfs, but im a bit worried. If they manage to escape my mother *WILL* Kill me. Guaranteed she'll make me take down all of my tanks.
Are these africans escape artists? Do i need a secure top o_0? cause i have a broken door on one of the glass tops that it can get out of, plus the backs arent secure.
Also, do they require somewhere above land to chill at? Or are they alright with just water and the long leaves and stuff i have that reach the top of the tank and float on the top?
#1 concern would be of them getting away somehow. Honestly, i was never a fan of reptiles and snakes. They creep me out. I Used to collect frogs and turtles in buckets out of a stream in my old yard, though. So long as those dont touch me im alright. Dont think id be able to grab a normal frog.. but, i seem to be alright when they are IN THE WATER :P.. For example, when fishing i get iffy about touching my catch unless i have a towel or something, but i have no problem touching the fish in my tank as well as the snails and stuff.. doesnt bug me. Hell, ill stick my hand in my fish tank and then lick my hand Haha. Only thing i wouldnt get is an eel :Z
So, would they work for me or is it a no-go?
