Hi all,

So I decided to try ADFs again and after a few weeks, one of them seems to have become particularly large in the abdomen region. I am keeping 5 all together in a 10 gallon tank with a small mystery snail.

As far as water parameters go, ammonia has been an issue up until about a week ago, but after doing 20% water changes every day to every other day, I think its under control now. None of the frogs have been showing any signs of obvious stress.

All are fed exclusively on frozen blood worms. I've been trying frog pellets, but none of them seem to know how to eat the pellets (not for lack of trying, though). I also drop in part of an algae disk from time to time for the snail and have seen the frogs trying to eat at the algae disk! Is this unhealthy for them?

I've tried posting some pictures of the fat guy. What do you guys think? Is it bloat? Thanks!

It looks healthy to me. I don't see any swelling under the chin and the skin looks nice and rough.

That's a relief! I don't really know much about them and they were a lot skinnier when I got them, so I just wanted to be sure.

What do you think about the algae waffers? Is it bad for the frogs to be eating them? I hardly even see Gigantor (the snail) eating them...he tends to prefer the bloodworm leftovers :wacko:

Thank you for the input :happy:

The algae waffers are perfectly fine for them to nibble on.

    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
