Fire Belly Toads Haven't Eaten Since I Got Them!

    I got two FBT two days ago. They have a large tank, with water/land, it's humid and damp in there, and the temp is about 78 degrees. I've set it up exactly as it's been described and pictured on many websites. They haven't really moved since I put them in (one is under a plant, one is in the water) and crickets are hopping past them and they're not doing anything. The reptile store I got them from said they fed them once a day, 3-5 crickets each, but since I got them back they won't eat.

    They have natural daylight too.

    Why won't they eat? :( Are the crickets too big?

    If the crickets fit in there mouth (which they probably do) they can eat them, try hand feeding them with tweezers by either holding the cricket in front of the frog or constantly dropping the cricket in front of the frog to make sure that they see it.

    actually, the crickets should be smaller or the same size as the soace bewtween the frogs eyes to avoid choking and imapaction. Adjustment was probably the issue. The toads were not comfortable yet
