My 11 year old male White’s tree frog yoda started going downhill awhile back. I wasn’t sure what to do and unfortunately let him be for awhile. It wasn’t until he stopped eating that I got on top of my game. I switched him out of his old tank into a smaller, more sterile one. It’s around 6 gallons and it’s the only spare one I had. I cleaned it out really well with vinegar and hot water and I set it up with moist paper towel along the floor, a hiding cave, and a water bowl that is filled daily with treated water. It is right by a window so it receives lots of day light and it has a 40 watt bulb that is on one side of the tank that keeps it around 78-83 during the day and at night temperature does not get below 70 and hovers closer to 73. I thoroughly mist the tank when I wake up, before I go to school, I get my mom to mist it once while I’m at school, and then I mist it multiple times in the afternoon, so humidity is usually around 60%. He had gotten quite skinny and was not eating or pooping, so I eventually had to force food into him. After that he started getting better, I bought some butter worms from the store to fatten him and he really loves those, over the past 2 weeks he has eaten 8 as well as 3-4 crickets. Once the butter worms are gone I will switch him to mainly crickets. I am working on phasing him out of worms. Oh and I do have a calcium supplement to dust the bugs with. He has pooped but they are small poops. I gave him a honey bath today because I heard that that can help with pooping. He seemed to enjoy it and did not try to climb out, instead he kind of relaxed and fell asleep. He is pretty stationary during the day, like most frogs, but he is active at night, climbing on the walls, soaking in his water dish and walking around. In the morning I usually find him in his water dish, but by the time I leave for school he has transferred out of his dish and into his cave. He is on the skinny side but is getting fatter. His belly is white and he has a tinge of pink on his legs but he has always had that so I don’t think that it’s red leg disease. Anyways that’s just the background on him. My main concern is the ugly lime green blotches on him. He has always been brown although sometimes turns green when being handled so that makes me think that green is his stressed out colour rather than the other way around. But the green spots stand out quite a bit. I’ve done a lot of research on it but I can’t at all figure out what it is. Some people have said that it’s normal and others websites say that he’s due to keel over just about any second now. He has had them for awhile but definitely not forever which leads me to believe that they are not normal. So I am
Not at all sure how to treat it?? I know some sort of antibiotic bath but it needs to be something I can get over the counter. We have no exotic vets in my area and I can’t afford a checkup and also buy whatever medication unfortunately :(
Please help!! I will try my best to answer any questions and please let me know what I can do to help him!!

    It’s very dry in Colorado. I make sure to spritz every night so while I’m sleeping. I have a nifty hydrometer that I got from Walmart. It tells me blue, green, red; too little humid, good, too much respectively. It’s been helpful to me.

    I just looked it up to see if I can find it again. It’s actually a hyGROmeter and temperature. Which measures the dew point. Here is the difference between due point and humidity. https://www.weather.gov/arx/why_dewpoint_vs_humidityYou can calculate Th relative

    Hey y'all, recently my juvenile axolotl's tail has been floating and can swim down but his tail lifts to an angle and I believe that it is stressing him out. He gets in between his plants to balance himself and I am cleaning out the bottom of the tank with my baster. I believe I overfed him and he also may have eaten many air bubbles. He's been like this for nearly 1 1/2 days.
