Fire belly toad problem

I have three FBT's in a 15 gallon tank. Have had them for about a year now. I just noticed that one of the toads seems to be having a problem on his little face. The skin on his muzzle if you will, has changed from the regular green/black to a slimy clear color. Is there anything I can do to help him? I highly doubt we have any vets in this area that deal with amphibians.

all i can say is put him in another tank to quarantine him just incase its contagious, keep an eye out for any signs of changes in his health, and behaviour.

sorry that I read it only now, put some peat in your tank; the acidity of the peat will more or less cure many of the known fungi which i suspect are bothering your pets.

Is it on the tip of his nose? If so, it might be caused by him bumping up against the sides of the tank often (does he do this?)---I had bought a couple of frogs who had this feature, and the problem was immediately solved when I bought a 20 gallon long tank for them (their original home was the size of a shoebox), and their noses healed within 2 weeks. But if there is any kind of "fuzz" on his nose, this is definitely a bacterial problem, which may be cured by anti-bacterial ointments/drops (take a look at this link: http://www.caudata.org/cc/articles/sores.shtml and look under "Antibiotics".

Keep posted on this, and good luck!!

    My axie is acting woerd he was a rescue as stated in a different post he got better and now seems to be deteriorating again...again all tank conditions are OK and as should be. He seems to have some black dapple like pattern under his bottom lip? Is that normal? And his two back feet have a little wierd growth? Almost? Tiny tiny tiny lump. His capillaries in his feathers also appear darker and more visible. Any help would be appreciated
