I bought an adult cobalt tinc from LLL Reptile and it was happy and healthy for the first couple weeks. I kept him in a Q tank for a while with spag moss, leaf litter, a hide, and a water bowl. I then tried introducing him to my other cobalt (female) but the female bullied him around so I separated them.
The new frog was eating very very well! He had a great appetite and was very active. Recently I built him a more permanent home with live plants and leaf litter and whatnot. A few weeks ago I noticed him being very unactive and not eating much. Now I am very concerned about him. He tends to just sit in one spot all day (sometimes sits in his water dish all day).
I haven't got any fecal exams done and I'm afraid I won't be able to (because he isn't eating, therefore not pooping).

I don't know what to do! This is only my second dart frog. My other one is still very happy and healthy.

Please any suggestions!

He needs to be quarantined and seen by an exotics vet asap. Some metronizadole may stimulate his appetite enough to get his strength back and get some fecals run asap, which is a definite need next. Any frogs sharing his tank will need the same treatment he gets---quarantining is always a must with frogs, esp. those which may be wild-caught imports. Good luck.
