Hello, and thank you in advance for any help!

This morning I noticed two of my vents (a male and female) hanging out by the pond in their tank. I came home just now approximately 12 hours later and the female was still in the same place I saw her last, next to the pond but not in it. The male is kinda hanging around and hasn't climbed up to his usual bedtime spot. The female looked like she was laying on her belly a bit, as opposed to being alert and sitting up. The temp and humidity were 78 degrees and 87% humidity. I gently misted the frog and she squirmed and moved around a little. Eventually a few minutes later she moved to the pond and sat there, then climbed out back to the same spot again and laid on her belly. A few minutes later she went back into the pond and then I noticed she made a weird jump and landed on her back in the pond! She looked passed out for about ten seconds! Then she magically came back to life and went back to sitting outside the pond. What is wrong? Is/was it a seizure?

I am feeding wingless ffs with Rephashy + calcium icb. I've had my trio of vents for over a year and a half and never had issues with any of them. What should I do? :(

Any pics of the tank would help. also I have seen my orange lamasi seizure when I first got it , but that was awhile ago. Haver you added any new plants or anything to the viv? Are you readings as far as temp takin inside the viv or on the outside? I usually have my room temp around 70. The lights raise the temps in my vivs about 3 between 5 degrees depending where they are located on my racks.

You might want to think about putting the frogs affected in QT. That is if they don't show any signs of improvement within the next day or 2.

Sam, thanks for your reply, though every case is unique I find comfort in your words. I don't have any pics of my setup at the moment. It is a ten gallon vertical converted tank, no new additions to speak of since I built it about a year and half ago. The temp and humidity is taken from inside the tank.

I'm happy to help and put your mind at ease. :) If your viv isn't seeded with springtails , it might be a good idea and try to feed them some of those instead of feeding ff. If I have a frog stressed and in QT I usually don't feeds as often or as much. Also, I try and feed in a location where the ff wont climb on the stressed frog.

Weeeeeellllll, today she is looking like nothing ever happened last night. She is back to her normal alert hoppity self. Should I dismiss it as a seizure? My repashy calcium icb is nearing its 6 month life so I should change that. I'll keep a close watch in any case.
