This is an interesting insight. I don't think I have seen people push back against feeding stations on this board, per se. The thing I have seen is people saying that using a feeding station more than temporarily may be depriving frogs of the activity and stimulation associated with foraging behavior. This is pretty funny to me, though, because I am guessing that any of us that have a lot of tanks probably fall into the habit of feeding in the same place most times (for me, it's just to limit where the powder residue goes) which is essentially a de facto feeding station anyway Regardless, I think your suggestion for using them for this situation is spot on.Feeding Station. Increases fly consumption. I think some 'places' have promoted feeding stations and because of it, people dont want to use them, like a guilt by association peer group phenomenon.
Agree. It's a cool phenomenon to see our subconscious pattern recognition skills at work.An experienced person can often even tell if a specimen is going to have problems - even if it isnt presenting yet.
I've had experience with frogs that fit Kmc's description- where something just ain't right. I've also had a frog that was very much stunted from lack of food/supplementation. That individual is less than 2 years old, but it is now full size. It will be interesting to see how well it does long term.I received a 'stunted' Terribilis years ago with a group that I had ordered. The other four frogs grew and developed normally, but the little guy remained stunted...he only reached about half the normal size. There didn't appear to be any other complications, aside from his size, but he expired after a couple of years.
