I recommend feeding small live damsels or chromis as these can usually be attained with relative ease and are usually affordable. In addition, as they are a marine fish they are nutritionally sound for your frogfishes' dietary needs. Another great food to fatten them up on is Peppermint Shrimp (). These guys can be had for fairly cheap and are entertaining to watch the Frogfish stalk them. If your frogfish is small, such as those we we see in the trade that are 1/2" or smaller I recommend molly fry or small mollies. Mollies make excellent food because they are livebearers (easy to breed), they readily adapt to saltwater, and they are very affordable. Painted Frogfish - by Bonar Sitohang #saltwater #ocean

The frog Fish. These saltwater fish have developed leg-like fins that they use to scurry across the bottom of the ocean floor. They can also change their colors to blend into coral reefs where they wait for prey to scurry by. If that wasn't strange enough, Frogfish have a worm like lure that comes right out of their heads to attract their dinner (see video below). Frogfish, true to their name can grow wart like appendages that only add to their unbelievable camouflage.There's osmosis. Well okay, water flows naturally from low salt concentration to a high concentration, causing a gold fish to die from shrinking of cells when placed in salt water and a clown fish to die from swelling cells in a fresh water environment. If frogs have the ability to suppress this osmosis thing, we can probably see adult frogs thriving in salt water. Upon searching the internet with the keywords "Salt Water Frog", I found links to Q&A sites. Most of these sites refer to two species: the Florida Leopard Frog and the Crab-Eating Frog.Painted Frogfish - by Yansu Junk #reef #coralreef #ocean #seahorse #copepods #aquarium #coral #reef #ocean #aquariums #saltwater #sealife #saltwaterfish #reeftank #sea #aquascape #fishtank #fishJuvenile frogfish will also readily feed on large amphipods at this size, so supplementing your tank with some macroalgae is a good way to introduce this natural fauna. Although I would not rely on amphipods alone to sustain a frogfish (they are quite voracious, especially when small). Live brine shrimp are also another alternative for the very smallest of anglers--just be sure to enrich them prior to feeding. If you cannot obtain small mollies or baby mollies, the next best bet is mosquito fish () which are readily available almost everywhere in the U.S. from Local Fish Stores, Pond Retailers, Mosquito Vector control, or even your local Department of Fish & Game. Gambusia will not survive long in saltwater but they are easy to obtain, fast to breed (you can throw about 20 in a 4 gallon tub with some plants and their population will quickly quadruple), and above all--cheap. Finally, if you cannot find Gambusia, you can always resort to guppies and guppy fry. Guppies tend to be a little bit more tolerant of the saltwater as well and you can acclimate them to saltwater conditions. Another live food one can readily find is Ghost Shrimp (most all Pet Smarts carry them if your local fish store doesn't) but they can be sensitive and are not terribly good nutritionally.Its common name in Australia is the Three-spined Frogfish. No one is quite sure how it received the common name of Freshwater Lionfish. They are not related to the saltwater Lionfish, sub-family Pteroinae, and fortunately they are not venomous like those saltwater Lionfish. Probably someone with an overactive imagination couldn’t pronounce "" and needed to call them something! They are members of the genus, which are non-venomous Toadfish.
