Frogspawn Trouble

Hey I have a frog with about 6-7 heads and I was wondering how and what to feed. I feed some phyto and it is up high in the tank near the light. Wondering if you can feed it solid foods like blastos and candy cane corals?

Phyto is pretty much worthless for a frogspawn. It is photosynthetic and does not requie food but spot feeding of cyclopeeze and mysis will premote a faster growth rate along with ideal water and lighting conditions.

I have 2 frogs in my 12 with about 8wpg pc lights. I spot feed mysis and brine every other day and have seen them grow 4 new heads each in about a month. The growth is amazing with spot feeding.

where do you spot feed the food, the tentacles pretty much cover up their mouths so i cant really get to them.

I have had my frogspawn far over 5 years and I have never spot fed them. They grow fast and I fragged them numerous times.
