Default Dendrobates leucomelas not eating

I got 3 bumble bee dart frogs 2 days ago and i have tried to feed them twice and they just dont seem to be eating many fruit flies, there is now quite a few flys in the enclosure (about 20) should i be worried?

I have seen one or two of the frogs eat a single fly but they just arent eating that much

Some frogs donít eat when recently moved. But if still not eating now try a small waxwork to coax them if not I would be talking to the breeder you brought off of. Most of our frogs ate day 1 of moving, our Benedicta didnít eat straight away. But everyone is different!

I also have bumble bee dart frogs 2 males
they have been in there enclosure for about two years now
they have never been a big eaters
at must I have seen then eat about five or six flies at a time at feeding time
and this as been the same since I got them
as long as they are eating some I would not worry to much but just keep a eye on them at feeding time
I would not put any more flies in at the moment
wait till you can not see any flies until you put any more in
and then see if they eat any more flies than they are now
good luck hope all turns out ok
