View Full Version : Violet died...
10-19-2007, 09:45 PM
I noticed yesterday when I fed her that she'd started peeling and seemed to be having buoyancy issues. She disappeared into the driftwood after she ate (and she did eat, which made me a bit relieved) and I didn't see her again until I checked on her at bedtime. She was floating on one of the val leaves at the surface and didn't swim away when I opened the lid (like she normall would've). I knew she wasn't likely going to make it through the night. I found her dead this morning. :ssad:
The thing that troubles me the most is I'm still not 100% completely sure if they're getting it from Petcetera or the wild driftwood I put in the tank (though I did boil it for 2-3 hours first).
All the same, I won't be keeping any more frogs until I nuke their tank and start fresh.
Sorry to hear about your froggie Rue...............

Turns out she wasn't lucky #4... :ssad:
I'm heading over to Petcetera later this afternoon (once hubby gets home) and I'm going to have a chat with them to see if they know what's going on (I doubt it, but they WILL once I'm gone! :ezpi_wink1: ) and to see if they're having similar experiences with their frogs.
I really want to rule out whether it's them or my driftwood. (I'm thinking them. I boiled the snot outta that wood!)

Awe i'm sorry to hear that :(
Its probably them, but I doubt they'll admit it.

CAF, you're probably right. But I can't conscientiously let it go. I'm shocked, as it is, so few people seem to know about this stuff!

So, I went over to Petcetera and told them about the Chytrid fungus, but they didn't really seem to know what I was talking about, nor seemed to care.
I won't be buying any frogs from them every again. THAT'S for sure!
