whenever you get a new frog that's going to go into a tank that already has frogs, or a frog gets sick, you need to quarantine it. The little plastic "critter cages" that you can get at any petstore work great, or you can buy a little 7.5 or 10 gallon tank if you want. These should be set up really simply, with something like sphagnum on the bottom, a water dish, a hiding spot, and a plant. Actually, you don't even really need the sphagnum, it just helps keep things damp. Paper towels can work as well. The idea is so you can watch the animal closely and see if it devolps and sign of illness, you can moniter it's eating habits, it's, um, bowel movements, and any other signs or health or lack thereof.
