    Default HELP Sick African Dwarf Frog

    Hi. Yesterday I noticed my frog was laying upside down and had reddening all over it's body, particularly arms and legs. I've had him about 4 years, he shares the tank with one other frog who is healthy and a bunch of passive community fish, also healthy. The tank is well established. Ammonia and nitrite 0. Nitrate is 40ppm which is unavoidable as that is my tap water reading down here. He's always been healthy in the past though he is much more skittish and doesn't assert himself at meal times compared to my other frog. He's been that way since I got him.

    Any advice. The only thing I have in the house treatment wise is fungus and fin medicine which is meant for fish, I don't think it would help and might even be toxic for frogs. Any advice? He's currently resting in a little fry box so that he can be closer the surface since he's too weak to go up for air.

    Thanks very much. I've included a picture for anyone that knows their stuff.

    I would remove him from the tank immediately and place him in a hospital tank, away from the other frog. Here is a link to someone who knows way more about frog diseases than I do.
    And if you could tell me, what size tank is he in, what do you feed him, what are the other fish in the tank? I hope everything turns out alright for your little.
