We (my son and I) called them Jumpers, and they were the best little pets. I kept them on the kitchen table and we loved watching them while eating. They were fun to just sit and watch. They are tiny and fragile, so no cats in the house would be good. Cats will find them and get very interested in them. I did not care for those little boxes that the stores sell them in, even though that is a good little habitat for them. I had mine in a fish bowl medium size. They need some sort of plant, fake or real to hide in. The water should not be more than 10 inches deep. These little guys do breath air and come up for air. They won't do good in a deep aquarium. Make sure the plant does not hang out of the bowl. They can climb and jump. When you change their water, once every couple weeks, use spring water from the store like bottled water, not from the tap ever. I would catch mine with a fish net very gently. (take the plant out so they can't hide and very gently get them in the net) I would have some water in a tupperware dish and put them in there with the lid on while I cleaned out there habitat. Make sure the water is room temperature, the same as their water. Keep them in a warm place in the house, not under a air condition vent or window. They don't need a heater, just judge on if you are cold in the room or space, then it is not good for them. You will enjoy these frogs. Very low maintenance. You can go out of town days at a time, just leave some extra food for them. The don't eat that much. I gave mine a couple nibbles of their food a day, but you can do it every other day. The pet store sells frog food, but they also will eat beta food and goldfish food. Awesome little frogs!
