I'm thinking one of my Leucs is underweight.
He looks like his sides where caved in a little.
I notice that he is feeding and toe tapping.
I use FF and Springtales.

Thoughts?
Thank you!!

The one does look to be a little lean. Keep an eye on it. If it doesn't turn around soon and gain some weight than I would separate it from the others.

It is thinner than the others. It could be from stress/parasites/both (or it's just thinner b/c it's male). I'd do some fecal tests right about now just for peace of mind.

He looks alot like mine did/does. Should be nothing to worry or lose sleep about if the leuc is not showing any odd behaviors. Fecal would not be a bad idea to give you peace of mind, but my honest opinion is that he looks fine.

In the pics he isnt sitting and being lazy like his friends, he is sprawled out. Mine go from having pot bellies, to looking thin just from changing their posture. Looks to be a good weight to me also :D

I wouldnt want to see it loose any weight but it has nice chubby hind legs and the tail bone is not protruding. Definatley get fecals done for peace of mind.

Thanks for the comments everyone.

I have not been able to find a local Vet to do fecals on Frogs, and there are none listed locally on the ARAV website. Is there a good place that people use here that you mail them the samples?

I am going to increase my Springtails in that tank and see if it helps to fatten that frog up a little.

I'd say he looks similar to other seemingly healthy male Leucs I've had in the past. If I were you, I'd keep an eye on his weight, but I wouldn't be too concerned.

Your Frog(s) looks skinny compared to the OP...
I am feeding both size ff and they are both eating, but I only got them 4 days ago...maybe they weren't being fed as much before I got them? They should put on weight if they are being fed daily and eating, yes?
