Frog question

curious if anyone knows how loud fire bellied toads get. I can't find anywhere online a simple "they will keep you up at night" or "don't keep in a room near your bedroom" or anything like that. same for african dwarf frogs. oh also will the dwarf frogs eat ghost shrimp even tho they are the same size?

adf's are too slow and lazy to make a noise or eat a shrimp lol. but make sure your adf's are in a shallow tank, they need to get up to the surface to breathe but have a hard time swimming straight up. i made the mistake of putting one in a 20g high and he couldn't make it to the top every time

Depends on the Toad some just seem to "want to be heard" and others are quiet.

I've got two fire bellied toads that call regularly(both males). One is a little louder than the other, but you have to be right next to the tank to hear them. It sounds like a very small dog barking about two houses down, definitely not loud enough to keep you up at night or anything like that.

I had two fire bellied toads a couple of years ago. They made noise occasionally, but not enough that it would keep you up at night Cool little toads, I liked them a lot.

sweet thanks guys. sounds good to me. I got another question tho!

with ADF I bought some dried bloodworms to feed them but the bloodworms don't sink and the frogs don't go to the top. how do I feed the damn things if they won't go to the food?!?!

You can try soaking them first to waterlog them. Or buy frozen bloodworms- these are actually more nutritious and easier to digest.
