Default My Tinc is sick

To begin sorry for my bad English

My tinc is sick
they were three but two were dead 2month ago
and last one was healthy but yesterday when i found him
he was on ground.
I think something wrong because he prefer high place and always sit on same place.
he looks like he can't climb wall. he is very powerless now.
he look smaller than when he was healthy. i can see his spine(?)

answer all these questions as best you can (cut and paste)

1. What species ? How long have you had the frog(s) and where did you acquire them ?

2. What are your Temperatures -Day and Night - Highs and lows ? Are the enclosure lights too hot ?

3. What is the Humidity like ? - Percentage or guesstimate. What type of Water are you using ? Describe your tank/enclosure and it's lid or top.

4. What kind of food are you providing, how much and are you dusting it ? What superfine powdered supplements are you using and are they fresh ?

5. Any other animals in the enclosure currently or recently ? Tankmates / other frogs ?

6. Any type of behaviour you would consider 'odd' ?

7. Have you handled or touched the frogs recently ? Any cleansers, paint, perfumes, bug sprays ect near the tank ?

8. Can you take pictures of EVERYTHING ? The frogs, the enclosure ? Take numerous pics of everything - that will be of great h

Nothing stands out.

Is there ventilation - some air movement?

Are there enough live plants and places to hide?

The light on top of the tank is not too hot?

Test it for parasites. If it does send the dead body to test it. I assume you are from Europe? Here in Europe the test are not that expensive.
