well i have had a QT tank set up just incase i ever had a sick frog. well i bought a group of varib. and sure enough one was looking bad :(



so i pulled him and put him in the tank that was seeded with trop springs a few months ago.
and a week later he is looking MUCH better! i figure another 2 weeks and i may pull, but we'll see.

good work! just out of curiosity - what will you do to get your QT tank ready for next time? it looks like maybe your frog was just malnourished and isn't actually sick so you won't have to worry about anything contagious. but shouldn't we throw out or sterilize any plants, leaf litter, and substrate after anything suspicious inhabits our QT tanks?

That looked like a frog suffering from lack of vitamins and calcium.

I would recommend supplements.

Repashy makes a great one

did you get a fecal done? Yeah, you'll need to toss everything in the tank unless the fecal comes back clean. and still... fungus or something else may not be caught in the fecal exam

yes i am aware of them, i use them, but this was the condition i got the frog in... so just bringing him back

no havent sent a fecal as the frog changed direction over night and i think that it was just a really hungry frog(like ReptilesEtcetera said), but will monitor.
