As of today I noticed he had a bright green splotch on him that looked strange, should I be concerned? He eats food and turns brown when awake, he turned more brown and it's harder to see.. but I think some green is still present. He seemed active enough to run away from me and reposition himself 2 times too and climbed to the top of the enclosure to sleep this morning (he doesn't climb high usually only 1 foot up (1/2 the tank).
Thanks

1. What species ? How long have you had the frog(s) and where did you acquire them ?
Whites Tree Frogs from Josh's Frogs in Owosso MI they shipped overnight
2. What are your temperatures -day and night - highs and lows ? Are the enclosure lights too hot ?
Daytime is 85-73 from basking spot to furthest location from light, nighttime it is 68-75
3. What is the Humidity like ? - Percentage or guesstimate. What type of Water are you using? Describe your tank/enclosure and its lid or top.

Humidity is 40-60 I spray once or twice a day usually at nightfall but sometimes when they wake up and humidity spikes to 75-80 during the night but is usually 70 by morning dropping to 40 by the end of the day. 81x18x24 full screen top but w/a 2 24w lamp top above. Water I use in their bowl and to spray is tap water with Josh's frogs declorinator.

4. What kind of food are you providing, how much and are you dusting it ? What superfine powdered supplements are you using and are they fresh ?
I am providing 1/4 crickets, after transferring him to a isolation tank I saw him eat two they are dusted with 50% exoterra vitamin mix 50% calcium supplement, they are fairly dusted when they go into the enclosure looking pale.

5. Any other animals in the enclosure currently or recently ? Tankmates / other frogs ?
1 other whites tree frog gotten from the same supplier and had been part of the same group of froglets.

6. Any type of behaviour you would consider 'odd' ?
He was at the top of the tank this morning but usually stays around the bottom/middle height.

7. Have you handled or touched the frogs recently ? Any cleansers, paint, perfumes, bug sprays etc near the tank ?
I handled the frog after noticing thier discoloration and wanting to check on him I washed my hands and rinsed them for 40 seconds dried and sprayed hands with dechlorinated water b4 handling, their cage is only next to laundry but I handled them just on the edge of the terrarium.

I have cleaned the substrate from their enclosure it was damp and in a few locations I found some white fuzzy stuff growing under the coconut fiber and moss. None was on the surface but I think this may be the culprit.

I have a vet visit scheduled for Tuesday (4 days away) is this more urgent?

Frogs are 2 months old or so I've had them 2.5 weeks and are not sexable I have referred to Ba Sing Se as Him but do not know for certain.

That info helps.

Just FYI (this is not part of your current issue) the ExoTerra supplement is not a good one for dart frogs. It has no preformed Vit A (there is evidence that frogs cannot convert beta carotene, so they need preformed A) and has a very low level of D3 for animals that aren't receiving UVB. Repashy Calcium Plus would be a far better supplement. Again, this has nothing to do with your current concerns.

You've had them only a short time; have you contacted the seller? It may be worth getting their opinion.

A vet visit is never a bad idea, if it is a qualified exotics vet. A dog and cat vet can do more harm than good.

You can find a qualified exotics vet here:
