Hi ,I'm a new frog owner I've had these two milkys for about 8 months now I don't know they're exact age bit they have grown quite abit since getting them , the one I'm concerned about is the smaller of the 2 it hasn't been having a great appetite I believe due to too large food (I switched and it became more comfortable with eating ) though now its not eating every 6 days like normal at it took 2 weeks to feed last time. I'm concerned and now it has began to present blue gel like liquid on its back , its concerning so I used a clean damp cotton bud to remove the gel but I'm confused as to what it is and how to help , please reply with any information as I have searched all over the Internet for help and gotten no information as to what it is. I hope someone can help ,thank you <3

Answer all these questions as best you can (cut and paste -- please don't quote because that makes it hard to read the responses):

1. What species ? How long have you had the frog(s) and where did you acquire them ? Were they WC (wild collected) or CB (captive bred)?

2. What are your temperatures (day and night - highs and lows) and how do you measure those temperatures? Does the vivarium have any supplemental heating, and if so, what type?

3. What lighting is on the enclosure (brand, type, wattage) and does the lighting add heat to the vivarium?

4. What is the Humidity like (percentage or guesstimate)? What type of water are you using? What is your misting procedure (automated or hand mister, how long and how often)?

5. Describe your tank/enclosure and its lid or top, and give details about the ventilation (how many vents, where are they positioned, how large are they).

6. What kind of food are you providing, how much and are you dusting it? What superfine powdered supplements (brand and exact product name) are you using and are they fresh (i.e. how long has the container been open, and how is it stored)?

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

8. Any type of behavior you would consider 'odd' ?

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

10. Take pictures of EVERYTHING -- the frogs, the enclosure, the vents. Take numerous pics of everything - that will be of great help.
