  1. Unhappy mpacted African Dwarf Frog - Help needed, pretty please :(

    Hi-

    My little guy looked like he had a red growth on his nose and it was sort of raised - he almost looked like a crocodile, if you can imagine that.

    I removed him from the main tank and put him on his own.

    I have done an aquarium salt bath and put him in his own tank with Maracyn Two. This is day 2. His red nose is gone, but I saw blood come out of his nose/mouth not sure which, but it was blood.

    Today I did another mild salt bath and cleaned his water and added some Maracyn Two. Same thing, blood came out of his mouth. This time I am sure where it came out of. His mouth is staying open, he cannot close it. He looks like he has something lodged in his throat and tummy area. It does not look like bloat, just that something is stuck there.

    I am guessing he swallowed some gravel.

    Is there anything I can do for this little guy? I quite sad to see him float, swim and bleed when I move him.

    Please any help would be great.

    Thanks.


    P.S: His other frog tank mate is doing well as all other his other tank mates (4 shrimp + 3 large apple snails).

    Can you give us some info on what kind of tank/filtration/water parameters and tank mates he has? What substrate? What do you feed him?

    I don't have an answer, but I would love to know more to try to help.

    Sounds like you're doing well so far without a diagnosis.

    He was in a Fluval Shrimp Habitat - the substrate was black Fluval shrimp substrate. I think he swallowed one or two of this.

    He hung in until I came home - I looked in and said "hey buddy, hang in there" before I left. Anyhow, I came home, he came up to look. I was happy to see him and talked to him for a bit. When I came back, he was stretched out at the bottom. I knew....

    What ever he had was too big to pass...

    He is not in pain anymore. I am sorry I kinda failed him with the darn substrate.

    Bottom line, ADFs need their own tank with larger rocks. I will not get another until I get a new tank just for them. If at all...this was too hard to bear for me.

    Thank you so much for attempting to help me!

    So sorry about your froggy loss. =[

    Good for all of us to hear: No ADF's in a tank with small substrate.
