I have a frogfish and it took me a year to get him to eat frozen mysis and he takes it right out of the turkey baster. Mine is in my 90 and I would put live brine in a turkey baster let him see its food coming out, once I got him used to that i put frozen brine in the baster than put the mysis. It took me a year of patience.....lol
I also fed baby guppies in the mean time, he has never touched any snails or hermits or any of the fish for that matter.

I have a bunch of snails/hermits as well, think there is a mantis in the LR but I can't ever seem to find him

I’ve had a frog for about 4 months, got him to take frozen silversides after only a few weeks using the same method that jamal used. He was in my 150, but got very stressed when I was battling cyano so I moved him to my 20. I'll move him back to the 150 eventually, but he seems very content hiding in the hole in the rock that he adopted as his home. Mines about 3" long and if memory serves he was only about $25. He’s probably grown at least an inch in the 4 months I’ve had him.

Most visitors to my tanks go directly to the 20 to try and find the frogfish. Great conversation piece, and really cool fish.

I actually moved him back to the 150. Thats a volitan lion behind him, fairly large fella too.

I did have him in the 20 with a antanata lion for a while, I know that too much bioload for the 20, but didnt have much of a choice at the time.

Some keep frogfish in reef systems of course no shrimp or it's time for some cocktail sauce. I think hermits would be fine with some live rock.

I have heard that feeding them guppies ghost shrimp and even mollies is best using a small net and moving the net towards the frogfish.

You can trick the fish into eating frozen shrimp thawed and skewered on a stick and wiggle it in front of them. They take their time and are very methodical when it comes time to hunt.

They digest their food slowly and eat about twice a week. Be careful over feeding that seems to be what kills most of them in the wild and home aquarium...gluttony..If a fish eats too much it won't digest fast enough and gasses will make the fish float and death will occur.

This is all out of Marine Fish and Reef 2003 Annual..Special 5th anniversary
