  1. General Health & Disease Treatment
    Hello everbody! I just made an account here after lurking for a longer time now since I'm having an emergency here. I have two tincs which have been getting along rather well so far. One of them is about a year old and is doing fine. The other, younger one is rather tiny and has been doing...

    I need some advice on taking care of froglet and sub adult ranitomeya frogs. Specifially I am having trouble with Southern veriabilis and benedicta. I had one healthy adult female southern in a 100 gallon tank full of plants. I added 4 sub adult southerns 6 weeks ago and 2 have died and one...

    Hi there. I think I posted my opening thread before but I'm back to do it again. My husband and I have three leucs which reside in a 36 x 18 exoterra tank. We mist 2-3 times a day to keep the humidity over 80% and have a ceramic heater hanging over one side of the tank to keep the temp around 76...

    I just got 3 new Benedicta froglets and two of them are doing great. They are plump and happy and I actively see them hunt and eat springtails. The third is always out hunting and staring at the springtails but never eats and he is withering away. He is so so scrawny I fear he will die any day...
  5. Member's Frogs & Vivariums
    Hi! I want to show an experience that I have, some days ago I got a froglet of D. auratus "Panam" that had 25 days of getting out of the water but it was very skinny. So I put it into a container and give some springtails (In Mexico we call them "Colembolos") and some larvae of melanogaster, so...

    Hi everyone. I have a leuc (Denny) that isn't holding itself up very well. His front legs are at 90 degree angles, rather than the obtuse angle (sorry, math teacher) that my healthier frog has. I've had him since last Christmas, and this is a recent thing. He gets FFF's dusted alternately...

    Hi! I am from Mexico and I have 1.0.1 R. Variabilis "southern" The female in my perception is a little skinny, what do you think? Also, if it is skinny which would be your recommendation? Thabks

    He (I think?) is far skinnier than the other two. He climbs and hops around constantly, and engages more than the other two with things moving (flies, follows my finger when I trace it on the outside of the tank). But he looks almost skeletal, while the others are plump. He eats as much as...

    Hi I have just joined and hope someone could help me out, I have a pair of acon hill Aruatus and one of them has gone rely skinny, I have seperated them but it is not putting weight on, there is nothing visible on the frog so thinking it parasitic, I have tried a few things but nothing seems to...

    Hello Everyone, I have three varaderos housed in a fairly new 29 gallon vert. Two of them appear to be getting skinnier and skinnier. I haven't noticed any aggression between the frogs. I feed melanogasters dusted with repashy calcium plus. I have noticed that the skinniest frog seems to...
  11. Food & Feeding
    I have a dart frog with STS who's completely emaciated. He's so skinny I can see his leg bones, he's listless, and he shows very little interest in the flies, since he can barely catch him. If he doesn't eat today, I'm certain he's going to starve to death. HELP! Is there any way I can entice...

    I have two tincs in a 36" square vivarium, both males, and I'm pretty sure one is going blind, if not blind already. He's always acting like he doesn't know where things are, and it takes him two or three tries to catch a fly, if he catches it at all. I think he might somehow be finding them by...

    I posted this on another forum yesterday, but have since found this forum which looks far more active. There is so much information here to learn, and for that I'm thankful. Unfortunately I need some advice quickly, so I will go ahead and repost this while I go reading other helpful threads...

    I have 4 Oyapock Tinc's about 4-5 months out of the water. They are all from the same clutch. I got them here local so no stress from shipping. I have them in a plastic shoebox container with plants, leaf litter, and a coco hut. Temps and humidity are all good. I feed them lightly twice a day...
