Default Lost my first frog :/ 1 yo leuc

Well today I opened up my 20g leuc tank to mist and feed... I saw their were pleanty of left over flies so I didn't need to feed and started whatching the two fatter leucs jumping around hunting as the lights went on... The little leuc I've been paying attention to wasn't with them- but he usually wasn't so I looked at his favorite little hiding spot and saw him lying upside down dead

I think his death was a mixture of things... while I never saw the other two bully him I always thought that they might be because of the size difference when I wasn't watching- and I think the little leuc didn't have the greatest eyesight 'cause when I would feed them it would take him quite a while to find the flies/catch them and he would repeatedly miss while trying to catch them... I always made sure he got flies but I started to seperate the leucs at feeding time hoping that it would help...

Anyways what should I have done differently? :/

First are you sure he's dead? That's the "seizure" position also......

Sorry for your loss.
I think you should've seperated the little one the second you noticed the other two were getting larger and the little one was not keeping up with the size of the others. That may have led to it's death, but it's difficult to say for 100% sure.
