I have been thinking about getting some Pygmy chams. My biggest problem with them is I hate crickets.

Do anyone know of anyone that has successfully raised them on a different diet? Obviously fruit flies and bean beetles would be easiest due to culturing them for the frogs.

Any thoughts?

They can take larger FFs as a primary food source instead.

I have not personally kept them but my friend has a breeding pair... he feeds them small crickets (1/4 to 1/2 an inch) and they do fine with those. I'm no expert but I don't see why they couldn't be kept on hydei, bean beetles, and iso's... especially giant orange iso's.

Babies definitely need to be fed melo's though.

Thanks for the help guys.

I haven't had bean beetles for a few months due to a mite break out but ill have to get some going along with isos to get ready.

I've always wanted some of these guys but now I'm fully convinced I'm gonna get some

I will if you promise to not talk crap about the tank that has pygmy chams, azureus, bakhuis, Komodo dragons, and a t-Rex in it. :eek:
