Reed frogs are small, brightly colored frogs native to west Africa and Madagascar, where they live among emergent vegetation along the edge of ponds and slow moving streams. Reed Frogs prey on insects, and are generally fed a diet of crickets, blue bottle flies, roaches, and sometimes hornworms, phoenix worms, and other nutritious feeder insects. To ensure your reed frogs are getting a nutritious and varied diet, check out our Tree Frog Feeder Bundle.
All feeder insects should be dusted with a quality vitamin/mineral supplement. We recommend rotating between Rep-Cal Calcium with D3, Rep-Cal Herptivite, and Repashy Calcium Plus as base suppmements, then subbing in Repashy Vitamin A Plus and Repashy SuperPig instead of Repashy Calcium Plus every other week. For example, if you feed your reed frogs on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, 4 weeks worth of supplementation would look like the following:
Week 1: Monday - Rep-Cal Calcium with D3, Wednesday - Rep-Cal Herptivite, Friday - Repashy Caclium Plus
Week 2: Monday - Rep-Cal Calcium with D3, Wednesday - Rep-Cal Herptivite, Friday - Repashy Vitamin A Plus
Week 3: Monday - Rep-Cal Calcium with D3, Wednesday - Rep-Cal Herptivite, Friday - Repashy Caclium Plus
Week 4: Monday - Rep-Cal Calcium with D3, Wednesday - Rep-Cal Herptivite, Friday - Repashy SuperPig

The Reed Frog Supplement Bundle contains:
1. Rep-Cal Calcium with D3
Rep-Cal Phosphorus-Free Calcium with Vitamin D3 Ultrafine powder is a staple in all of our captive bred animal diets. It is scientifically formulated from 100% natural oyster shell phosphorus-free calcium carbonate with added Vitamin D3 for normal absorption of calcium. The ultrafine grind allows an even coating on feeder insects, fruits, vegetables, and other foods. Rep-Cal packages their supplements in durable airtight containers for easy storage and use.
Rep-Cal Herptivite Multivitamin is a staple in all of our captive bred animal diets. It's formulation contains natural source ingredients with a base of sea vegetation, which is rich in essential trace elements and minerals. Herptivite contains proper levels of vitamins and minerals combine in perfect balance for many aspects of your reptile's bodily functions. It uses Beta Carotene rather than Vitamin A so there is no threat of Vitamin A toxicity. Beta Carotene is an anti-oxidant that is converted to Vitamin A after consumed. It's powder form allows for evenly coating on insects and foods and easy mixing. Rep-Cal packages their supplements in durable airtight containers for easy storage and use.
Calcium Plus was developed to increase the nutritional value of insects as they are fed to all insectivores, transforming insects into a food item that has an optimal calcium/phosphorus ratio, as well as balanced levels of vitamins, minerals, and trace elements.
Preformed Vitamin A, also known as Retinol, is a fat soluble vitamin that is vital to the well being of reptiles and amphibians. Availability of Vitamin A is vital for your pet's health, and it's ability to produce healthy offspring. Specifically with frogs, additional supplementation of Vitamin A has been shown to reduce incidents of spindly leg, short tongue syndrome, and what is commonly known as 'bad eggs' - eggs that fail to develop into healthy tadpoles. At Josh's Frogs, we supplement all of our breeder frogs with Repashy Vitamin A one to two times a month, with great results.
Repashy SuperPig is a Carotenoid Supplement designed to enhance the diet and appearance of Reptiles, Fish, Amphibians and Birds. Repashy SuperPig contains different carotenoids, which are organic pigments that cannot be formed by animals, and are generally produced by plants, algae, or fungi. Carotenoids act as antioxidants, can be converted into vitamins, and even absorb harmful light in the eye. Most notably of all, carotenoids are often absorbed into the body and increase the amount of visible red, orange, or yellow coloration in a variety of animals, reptiles and amphibians included. Carotenoids may not have visible effects in all species, but when used correctly, are beneficial to your pet's health. At the very least, carotenoids are a great source of antioxidants.
