Default Finding frogs

Does anybody have a method when it comes to finding their frogs in their viv? My Leucs are almost always in the same spot when it comes to feeding and sleeping but sometimes I'll look in and one will be hiding so good I can't even find him. One was missing for a whole day (which is rare for my guys) and I found him underneath the water dish which is sitting on about 4 inches of gravel. I guess the gravel settled and there was a cave under there just big enough for him to fit in! It was too funny. Anybody else have any specific procedures when it comes to finding their darts or any other unusual hiding places?

This is a good trick. From now on, whenever you feed mist the cages first and then throw in the ff's. After a while, they will realize that mist=food, so you can mist and they come running to their feeding spot. It's worked well for me.

Put the plants in the back of the tank and leave the front part open. I have leucs and pumilio so I don't have to worry about this too much but I know it works (back when I had auratus). Mist and then feed them, but put most of the flies in the front. They come out to get them, realize that nothing is going to eat them, then stay there for a while. You can also have some standing water (in a small dish or something) in the front, which sometimes helps.
I'm probably working on some crazy project.
